Surf Fishing
It’s time again for the 57th Annual world-famous, Cape Hatteras Invitational Surf Fishing Tournament. 120 teams of 6 people will participate for a chance to become one of the top three winners – who will receive prizes, gift certificates and trophies. The tournament begins Wednesday with an Open House for all the tournament participants and their guests. After morning and afternoon fishing sessions on Thursday, the clubhouse opens to the public for pizza, beer and a tackle show where manufacturers’ representatives will be on hand to show their newest rods, reels and accessories as well as other booths. Then Friday there will be two more fishing sessions followed by Brag Night for all participants and guests where Team Trophies and Raffle Prizes will be awarded.

Saturday is the Bob Bernard Individual Tournament, a fun tournament that’s free for youth (through age 12) and Junior Anglers (13-16 ) and just $10 for adults to enter.

Those who would like to participate but don’t want to compete are welcome to volunteer to judge the competition. In past years, nearly 75 people from on and off Island have participated by judging. Click here for more information on the event website.
