The water was hot and the fish
weren't particularly active. But to
hear members of the South
Brunswick Islands Fishing Club tell
it, their first-ever king mackerel
tournament couldn't have gone better.
According to tournament Chairman
Tom Tucker of Sunset Beach,
some $5,400 in cash and prizes was
awarded to various fishermen
aboard the 27 boats which entered the
event held out of Inlet View Marina.
Tucker said the tournament's success
is largely due to overwhelming
support from local banks and merchants
which matched the $2,700
purse collected in entry fees.
Additional credit, he said, should
go to tournament committee
members Craig Snow, Don l?wis and
But perhaps most credit should go
to the fishermen who entered the
event, many of whom carried home
cash and prizes.
The prize for most poundage taken
during the tournament was awarded
to Wade Rvn! nf t jimKertiin III, lnn/1
ed five kings for a total of 49' a
James Kuss of Shallotte took first
place honors for the largest fish, a
124-pound king which measured 384
Chip Maree of Ash took second
place, although he probably felt he
deserved a share of first place.
Maree also caught a 124-pound king.
His fish, however, measured exactly
one inch less than Russ' catch at 374
Third place was landed by Mike
and Richard Spivey, a father and son
team from Whitcville. They landed a
king which weighed in at 12 DOundx
Fourth place ended in a dead tie
between Sammy Sessions and Craig
Snow, both o( Ocean Isle Ueueh.

king, with each fish measuring 'Mi1?
A special prize was awarded to

A free fish fry for participants was
held at Inlet View Maniui Saturday
night following the weigh-in and
"We just had a terrific group of
sponsors that got lichind this tournament
and made it happen," Chairman
Tucker said Monday morning.

Inlet View Mnrinu
Despite good comments about the
fishing tournament held at his
establishment over the weekend. Joe
Furr of Inlet View Marina at Ocean
Isle Beach, had to come back to reality
when discussing general fishing
trends for the past week
"Poor, poor and poor" was the way
Furr described recent saltwater action.
"It's been just so dad-blamed
hot nobody's hardly caught
anything," he said.

"We hudn't done nothing all

" There hasn't been nothing biting.
That water's been too hot. It's got to
be a little cooler."
Ocean Isle Marina
The fishing news from George
Crisp at Ocean Isle Marina was
slightly more positive, lint the usual
poundage was noticeably lacking
"Yea, it was kind of busy, hut the
fish didn't cooperate a hit," Crisp
said "We had a lot of people and a lot
of boats out there buzzing them, but It
was just too hot."
The bright spot in Crisp's report
dealt with Anion Hnucom of
Charlotte, who caught several "real
pretty" kings Friday and Saturday
