The Jolly Mon, wind and all brought a bunch of friends together AND brought the store a great deal of business. Thank God!
Look at the picture of store employee poor Katelyn as she gathers T Shirts to be folded. All kidding aside, thank all of ya'll for coming to the Jolly Mon and for being our loyal customers. It means the world to all of the "OIFC family".
The World Cat captained by Steele Park and Chris Eckert went to the Shark Hole Tuesday with Gary Stansoll, Adam Stansoll, Nick Wolfe, all of Charlotte and Scott Knuth of Sanford, N.C. aboard.
They spent most of the day there fishing with frozen Bait Masters Cigar Minnows. One of the prizes they brought to the docks was a 34 1/2 to 35 lb king. A day late and $17,000 short.
Also out charter fishing was Capt. Barrett McMullan, aboard his Yellowfin, The Tree Shaker. Not to be left out Capt. Barrett's crew also brought home a king.
If you missed the Captain's meeting on Friday you missed a very proud moment in the history of the Jolly Mon KIng Classic. The Jolly Mon tournament has been a long time contributor to the Long Bay Artificial Reef Association (LBARA)- over 10 years running now. Every fish that is weighed or donated during the tournament is collected by the LBARA and sold, the proceeds used to build and maintain the area's AR's. This year, the LBARA and the state of NC DMF honored the Jolly Mon by officially changing the name of AR 460 (AR 3 miles off of Shallotte inlet) to the "Jolly Mon Reef". This is a tremendous honor, my family and I were blown away. Going forward when you buy a chart, you will see the "Jolly Mon Reef" off Shallotte inlet. How cool is that? So, going forward, help us to get the name to stick- Jolly Mon Reef- The final phase now that we are working on is how to make the Jolly Mon Reef the most productive reef in the area. It is all ready a heck of Sea Bass spot and good for Spanish Mackerel and the occasional King, but we are working on ways to pump it up- so stand by.
Thanks to the LBARA and NCDMF for the honor- we are proud of the tradition we have built in the Jolly Mon King Classic and now its namesake will live for years to come.

The weather made fishing a challenge. However most participant accepted the challange. Catching a king was very hard if not impossible for some anglers. So finishing in the top was extra special. Congratulation to the top anglers and to all to who fished. The top 3 anglers were as follows:
Champion, D. Logan, Logan's Run, 23.60 lbs
2nd Cearly Hooked, 22.50 lbs.
