PKS Fishing Tournament
By Bill Steenland
We had a pretty good southwest wind on the day of the Pine Knoll Shores
Fishing Tournament, which contributed to a smaller turnout than we had expected.
Still, the weigh-in was a lot of fun. Volunteers were on hand for t-shirt and beverage
sales and to provide free soft drinks to those interested. The leaderboard was well
manned, and we had a dedicated tournament photographer.
The winning categories this year were:
• Flounder—There were two flounder weighed in, with only about an ounce
difference in Weight. The winner was Art Southard, with a flounder tipping
the scale at 2 lbs., 6 oz. (which was caught in an undisclosed location). Art
won a trophy and a Penn reel donated by Freeman’s Bait and Tackle.
• Gray Trout—Only one gray trout was caught, weighing in at 1 lb., 11 oz.
Allen McMillen took the trophy in this category and also won a rod and reel
combo from Freemans Bait and Tackle.
• Blue Fish—Two blue fish were weighed in, with Art Chleborowicz winning
the trophy with his 14 oz. catch. In addition to the trophy, he received a rod
and reel combo from Chasin’ Tails Outdoors.
Kid’s Tournament. Unfortunately, there was only one fisherman in the Kids
Tournament—10-year-old Sailor Koltun, who was the proudest fisherman there
when he accepted his prize as his grandfather, AUen McMillen, looked on. Sailor
caught a couple of fish, but his winner was a 5 oz. spot. Sailor won a trophy and a
nice rod and reel combo donated by Chasin’ Tails Outdoors.
Special thanks to Suzanne Carmel and Barbara Holman, who worked so hard at
t-shirt sales. Thanks to photographer Bill Flexman, and to beverage salesmen Tom
Atz, Ed Powers and Bill Foy and to the leaderboard updater. Shannon Smylie. Town
support was invaluable, with Natalie Gibble arranging for the trophies and keeping
things on track, while Sonny Cunningham got everything to the park in his usual
good humor. Thanks again to PIKSCO for the use of McNeiU Park for the weigh-in.
As with all Pine Knoll Shores events, the support of the town and willing volunteers
made all the difference in a successful tournament.
