    Fishing Tournament Fund Raiser to be Held for Local Middle School Student Battling Cancer

    An inshore fishing tournament will be held on Saturday October 13, 2012 in Surf City, NC to benefit the family of Kimberly Batchelor, a local 12 year old girl battling a rare form of brain cancer. The tournament will be a catch and release tournament for flounder, speckled trout, and red drum, with cash payouts for the top three teams.

    The entry fee for the tournament is $250 per boat, with all proceeds going to the family. The Captain’s Meeting will be held Friday October 12 at East Coast Sports in Surf City, where each team will receive a measuring device and a token to be used the day of the tournament. Points will be awarded for LEGAL SIZED flounder, speckled trout, and red drum that are caught, photographed against the measuring device with token in the picture, and released. Each legal fish will be documented, specifying whether it was caught on live bait (worth 50 points), artificial (worth 75 points), or fly (worth 100 points). The point totals will determine the final results.

    Congratulations Pete for making this a reality. I'll have at least one prize donation and likely two.
