New for 2019
The Surf Fishing Committee recommended and the Board of Directors approved allowing the winner of the Spring and Fall Intra-Club surf fishing tournaments a chance to be on a surf fishing team of their choice the following year. They must be in good standing (dues paid) and must have fulfilled the service to the Club requirement. They must declare which tournament team they wish be on prior to the drawing for the Ocracoke Tournament the following year. Make your plans now for these tournaments.
We will be drawing the names for the 2019 Ocracoke Team at the February club meeting and the names for the fall tournaments at the March club meeting. Registration forms will be in the news letters and I will have forms at the meetings.
Thanks to all of you who participated on the teams in 2018!

December Crappie Tournament
Our annual December Crappie Tournament was held on Lake Smith. The day dawned with good weather and 17 anglers came out to try their luck. A Big Thank you to Gary Doerhoff and his crew of helpers: Patty Searby, Butch Eason, Ronnie Nixon, Jerry Mariano, & Carl McCoy who got things started and ran everything so smoothly. Most anglers ended up skunked with nary a countable fish except for two boats. Our own Melanie Bayford captained the boat on which John Leay got the third-place fish (1.6#) and won a crappie fishing rod. First and second place went to anglers Josh Morris (First Place with 2.38#) winning the $150.00 prize, and Taylor Estes (Second Place with 1.93#) winning the $75.00 prize.
