Anglers rarely need a reason to drop a line along the Crystal Coast – but when they're doing it for a cause it sure adds a new layer of enjoyment. The Reelin’ for Research Offshore Fishing Tournament, which benefits the NC Children’s Promise, a component of the NC Children’s Hospital in Chapel Hill, brings anglers back to Morehead City April 27-28.
Fishing begins at 7am inshore and 8am offshore with weigh-ins for the inshore division from 1-2pm and offshore division from 4-6pm on the Morehead City waterfront. Bragging rights commence immediately following at the awards banquet.
All teams are responsible for a minimum of $1,000 per boat in fundraising efforts; the winning team will be determined by aggregate weight of the three largest meat fish from the following: wahoo, dolphin, & tuna. For more event details, visit reelinforresearch.org.
