The Carolina Beach Parks and Recreation Department had over 130 kids participate in the 18th Annual Youth Pier Fishing Tournament at the Kure Beach Pier on Saturday, June 2nd, 2012. The kids and their parents were lined-up early to receive their fishing rod, shirt and bait for only $2.00. There were over 270 non-perishable canned food items donated to the Federal Point Help Center. There were a variety of fish caught during our event. The winners for largest fish are as follows: 5 – 9 Year Old Winners: First: Jake Atkins (2.6 lbs Spadefish), Second: Kai Nau (1.6 lbs Spadefish), and Third: Drake Chase (1.15 lbs Black Drum). 10 – 15 Year Old Winners: First: Samantha Dew (.75 lb Speckled Trout), Second: Hunter Stone (.65 lb unknown fish), and Third: Kyle Carpenter (.55 lb Angelfish).
The Town of Carolina Beach Parks and Recreation Department would like to thank all of our sponsors who made this event possible: Carolina Beach Parks and Recreation Advisory Committee, Kure Beach Fishing Pier, Island Tackle and Hardware, Blackburn Brothers Seafood, Island Gazette and Charlie Thomas, weighmaster from the Got ‘Em On Live Bait Club. We hope to see everyone again next year!
