Inaugural Marshes Light King Mackerel Tourney Oct. 30
“We have a lot of interest from our locals and from the Morehead City area,” said tournament director Bill Boykin. (252-305-4737) “We are located in Shallow Bag Bay and anglers can use either Hatteras or Oregon inlets to reach us. The king fish can be real close in late October which ought to benefit anglers in smaller boats.”
The entry fee for the Inaugural Marshes Light tourney is $400, and regardless of how many entries there are, the first place kingfish will be worth $10 grand. The payout for second through fifth places is based on a 60-boat field, with second place paying $2000. Lines in will be at 7 a.m. on Oct. 30, and fishing will conclude at 4 p.m. followed by a weigh-in from 4 – 6 that afternoon.
Lots of entertainment is scheduled for the tournament including a Captain’s Meeting on Friday night with dinner and live music, and an awards presentation on Saturday night with supper.

“I went to cranking rocks this afternoon,” Cherry said.
That strategy yielded quick results, and the Bassmaster Elite Series pro built a 17-pound, 7 ounce stringer.

“The fish are in some places I haven’t seen them in five to seven years,” the Florida pro said. “Every time I fish a tournament here this time of year, I make a point to check these places — and the fish haven’t been there in years.”">Tharp leads after first day of Bassmaster Classic

“I had one pretty good day, and then I had two not-so-good ones,” Cherry said after leaving the weigh-in stage. “But after Wednesday I thought I was going to kill it;it was that good.”
Unfortunately, he was thrown a curve ball when a severe storm system rolled through the area and dumped inches of rain and kicked up high winds — a combination that turned all of Cherry’s spots to mud pits.">Cherry has tough day on Bassmaster Classic’s first day
