Hook, Line and Sinker: Local Fishing Report and Photos for April 23rd, 2014

April 21, 2014 - Are you acquainted with the Cape Fear Disabled Sportsman’s Fishing Tournament?  Well, let me bring you up to speed on that. Each May for the past 16 years, Got-Em-On Live Bait Club, has organized a day of fishing for people with all kinds of disabilities.  With the help of Kure Pier and other sponsors and volunteers, the day of fishing, food, and fun is provided at no cost to the participants.  All they need do is show up and scores of volunteers will be standing by to hand out fishing equipment, bait, breakfast biscuits, boxed lunches, prizes and awards.  Got-em-on’s Weighmaster will be on the pier to record each catch, and there are usually plenty of photographers present to record the smiles. (Some of our local volunteers have done this long enough to attain the degree of “Professional Line UnTangler”.)   This year’s event will take place on Kure Beach Pier, Friday, May 16th, starting at 8:00 a.m. and lasting until about 12:30 p.m.
