You tell me. Is Capt. J. Dogg Williamson styling with his hat or not? And did he really catch this trout with a Salt Water Asasin Shrimp or does he own stock in the company?

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 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.

Well, what can you say. Sometimes you get the bear, sometimes the bear gets you. This weekend the bear got us. Between bad weather and bad fishing, it was a tough weekend to be a tournament king mackerel fisherman. But, despite all the negative transpirings, there were winners and although not very big, there were King Mackerel caught. Congratulations to all our winners and thanks to everyone who participated. We had 185 boat entries, which is down substantially from the typicall 300+ boats the Jolly Mon hosts, but I still consider it pretty darn good in the face of such adversity. We had a great captain's meeting evening on Friday with all sorts of festivities and food as the show went on just like it does every year.
Again, thanks to everyone who stayed dedicated to the Jolly Mon. I am beginning work now on the Fall Brawl and hope to see you there as well- hopefully with better weather and certainly with better fishing.
