Got-em-on Live Bait Club held another flounder points tournament last Saturday.  That constant 20 knot –wind from the Northeast actually made the event more competitive, since no one even thought about going outside to fish the ocean wrecks and reefs. Most anglers fished the East bank of the Cape Fear River, although some had their own “secret location” that could not be divulged. Anyway it was a very successful tournament with over 80 participants and about half of them weighed in.  Congratulations to the top six:  #1 Devin Anderson, 8.55 lbs. #2 Troy Phillips, 6.4 lbs.  #3  Mike Norris, 5.9 lbs.  #4 Ryan Wiggins, 5.35 lbs.  #5 Fred Davis, 5.15 lbs. and #6 John Batson,  5.1 lbs.  That’s right…  the top six places were all North Carolina Citation size flounder.  I’m indeed impressed.
With only one more event this year, the 2014 Donnie Harrill Memorial Flounder Cup is up for grabs!  Chris Hansen is still in the top spot, but Devin Anderson is only 2 points back.  3rd, 4th, and 5th are separated by only 5 points, as are positions 6, 7, and 8.  Only one point divides positions 9, 10, and 11. What I’m sayin’ is that this competition is tight!   There won’t be any dropouts for the 5th and final tournament next month!
By the way, you can see the Flounder Cup in the Got-em-on display at the Federal Point History Center located adjacent to the Carolina Beach Town Hall.  If you have not been to the History Center, you really should go.  It is surely one of the best kept secrets on the island.  ‘A priceless resource for anyone interested in local history that everyone should take time to get acquainted with. 
 Wishing you the best,

Tim hooked (and released) this whopper Redfish just off shore last week. Nice!!!

Wade, from Virginia, caught some 26.5” redfish last week fishing with Lucy’s Choice.
