The Cape Fear Disabled Sportsman’s Annual Fishing Tournament (CFDSFT) has grown to be quite a success. Every year the Got-Em-On Live Bait Club and many sponsors and donors put forth a lot of effort into giving a great day of pier fishing to many disabled persons. Being disabled may prevent most of these people from enjoying one of the greatest activities our area has to offer. This tournament provides everything from bait, rods and tackle to lunch and awards making it possible for so many people to take part in this great event. This year’s event will be the 14th Annual CFDSFT and is scheduled to take place at the Kure Beach Fishing Pier on Friday, May 11th starting at 8:00 a.m. and lasting until 12:30 p.m. Plenty of people will show up and it is sure to be a great time.
“This year’s tournament is going to be great,” says tournament organizer Dawson Freuler. “We have had so many great sponsors throughout the years and many have been with us the whole time. The tournament has grown from just 40 fishermen the first year to over 300 the past couple of years. It is great to see our contestants come back year after year. We have made some great friends and it is fun for all.”
This year’s tournament is fast approaching and they can always use more sponsors to help out. Last year they had over 300 people fishing but only had 225 rods. To keep providing for the influx of interest in this tournament they are asking sponsors to try and help them raise the funds necessary to purchase another 100 rods to ensure that everyone can fish. “Any donations, no matter how big or small will help use to ensure a great day for our guests.”
