C' ohoreltne Pine Knoll Shores Flotilla, Christmas Parade & Christmas Caroling See page 27 Vol. 13, No. 11 A Shoreline Community, Pine Knoll Shores, N.C. December 2018 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.
