Fishing tournament season is upon us and the fun begins today, October 5, in Southport, NC, with the U.S. Open King Mackerel Tournament registration, entertainment and captains meeting at the Southport Marina. Fishing will begin on Friday with more entertainment on Saturday afternoon and the awards ceremony on Saturday evening. As you can see, this event is not just for the fishermen. It’s an enjoyable time for everyone.
Also, on Saturday, your kids up to age 15 can enjoy the fun of fishing, from 10 AM until noon, on the City Pier, in Southport, NC, at Captain Charlie’s Kids Fishing Tournament. This is a great way to get your kids hooked on fishing. They might even win the U.S. Open King Mackerel Tournament someday.
