Monty Robinson's 27-pound king mackerel won the Oak Island Open Pier Tournament last weekend.
Monty Robinson’s 27-pound king mackerel won the May 18 Oak Island Open Pier Tournament on Oak Island and Ocean Crest Piers.

In many spring pier tournaments, a single big fish caught will often win its large gamefish division (Category 3), but that wasn’t the case this time.

 

Robinson started the assault with his 27-pound king; Ron Brewer followed in second with a 24-pound, 14-ounce cobia, and Chuck Smith finished third with a king that weighed 18 pounds, 13 ounces. Robinson and Smith caught their kings at Ocean Crest Pier, while Brewer landed his cobia at Oak Island Pier.

 

Sixty fishermen competed in one of three categories in the tournament. Category 1 went to Brenda Lawlor for her 2-pound, 5-ounce spadefish, followed by Chuck Brown’s 1-11 pompano and Scott Coe’s 1-9 pompano. Lawler and Coe were fishing at Oak Island Pier, while Brown fished at Ocean Crest Pier.

 

Chester Tyner won Category 2 with a 4-pound, 6-ounce Spanish mackerel, followed by Barry Singletary’s 2-13 flounder and Brian Kiker’s 2-5 speckled trout. All three fish were caught at Oak Island Pier.

 

James Lutz won Top Junior Angler honors for a 1-pound bluefish.
