If You're Looking For an Ocean Isle Beach Hotel

The Cape Fear Sailfish Classic takes place on Friday and Saturday, August 9 and 10, 2013. This is an open tournament for all fisherman, targeting Captains and their crews from Wrightsville Beach to the west side of the Shoals at Ocean Isle Beach. It will be a weekend of fun and festivities, cash payouts, Champions Trophy and bragging rights.

This is an all-release event, designed to promote fun and exciting fishing that occurs nearshore every year as the waters warm and the Gulf Stream eddies push inward. Captains will fish as far "offshore" as the Tower, and the boundaries are defined as the Dallas Rock to Schoolhouse and Parking Lot Areas off of Wrightsville to 23 mile Rock, west to the Jungle/Hammer areas off of Ocean Isle.

The event is a 2 day fishing tournament, commencing with a pig-picking Captains meeting at the Wightsville Beach Marina on August 9. Fishing days are Friday/Saturday. Lines in at 8 a.m. and out at 3 p.m. This event is designed to be fun, all release and open to boats of any size. Book your place now, come for the Captains meeting and experience first hand the art of circle hook rigging ballyhoo by noted area fisherman.
