• Friday, July 12th - Sunday, July 14th

Summer is a fine time to drop a line in Carolina Beach, and during this annual fishing tournament, visiting anglers can discover just how much fun the local fishing scene can be while having a chance at landing some incredible prizes. The Coast Got-Em-On King Mackerel Classic is held over the course of a July weekend, and it features plenty of activities, comradery, and of course, plenty of exceptional fishing along the Cape Fear coastline.

The event kicks off with a Captain’s Meeting on Friday evening, and the fishing begins in earnest on Saturday with a wealth of prizes up for grabs. A full schedule of events are posted annually on the website and on various social media sites and outlets, and both regular participants and newcomers are invited to register and join in the fun. After the fishing, an Awards Ceremony and celebration is held on Sunday, and fishermen can enjoy a little fun and food with their fellow anglers. With lots of opportunities to land one of the most popular catches in the Cape Fear region – the king mackerel – this annual fishing tournament is a great way to enjoy a little competition, and plenty of great regional fishing.
