It’s a Second Chanze for Rumble in the Jungle

photo

North Myrtle Beach, SC — The border between North and South Carolina is one of the most hotly contested areas of head to head king mackerel competition found anywhere in the Southeast. During the summer months, big fish can be found anywhere from right on the beach to as far offshore as you care to venture, and the tournament fishing really heats up with anglers from both Carolinas duking it out for bragging rights along with some serious cash.

SHARE Victory Falls to Intracoastal Angler Team

photo

It’s always refreshing to see a tournament that does well, both for the participating anglers and for the charity that it represents. That was the case in mid-July with the SHARE King Mackerel Tournament held out of Dockside Marina in Wrightsville Beach, NC. Now in its fourth season and first year as an SKA-sanctioned tournament, the SHARE event produced a fleet of 103 boats thanks in part to a good weather forecast (with a captain’s choice “fish one day of two” format) and a super-fun time for the anglers in attendance.

photo

More than half of the 162 boats fishing the either/or format of the 2014 East Coast Got Em On Classic were SKA boats. And the leaderboards showed it—28 of the top 34 Open Class boats and 15 of the top 20 Small Boats were SKA members. The event raises funds to benefit the Got Em On Live Bait Club, Carolina Beach Fire Department, and Kure Beach Fire Department. Part Time started off the day catching bait off Yaupon Pier and decided to head to the Christmas Rock in their Yamaha powered Contender.

Reel Determined Is Top SKA Boat at the Jolly Mon

photo

More than half of the 230 boat field checked out on day one of the either/or Jolly Mon Kingfish Classic held at the McMullans’ Ocean Isle Fishing Center. The tournament had been postponed a week to June 26-29 hoping for safer, more agreeable weather conditions. It seems like the weather could always be better, but the weekend was definitely fishable. The Shark Hole was a popular spot but there were crowds at the 90s and Yaupon Reef, too.
