Day 1 – King Of The River Fishing Tournament
New Bern, NC –
Thats a wrap for Day 1 of the Fish Grip King Of The River Fishing Tournament. 15 teams left the New Bern Grand Marina Yacht Club at 6:00 AM in search of 1 Redfish, 3 Flounder and 3 Speckled Trout.
While the weather cleared up later in the afternoon teams spent most of the day dodging rain storms. Tournament headquarters staff were able to track and follow the storms with the PointClickFish Sirius XM Marine Weather Kiosk. Teams reported a steady flounder and redfish bite but had to work to get the keepers and upper slot fish. The largest flounder was almost 20 inches in length.
Weigh in will kick off tomorrow at 4 PM but Local Boy Scout Troop 13 will be cooking hamburgers and hotdogs starting at 11 AM to raise funds to support their troop. Come on by and see the weigh in live, have a great meal and see the vendors and kayaks on display from Neuse River Bait & Tackle.
