GREGG HOLSHOUSER GRAND STRAND OUTDOORS

Back-to-back fishing trips net deep-sea excitement


Now this was a Memorial Day weekend to remember. Two fishing trips on back-to-back days, one offshore and one inshore, and both very successful.

The two trips were proof positive the prime deep-sea fishing season is here for the summer out of the Grand Strand's three South Carolina ports (Little River, Murrells Inlet and Georgetown) and one in North Carolina (Calabash).

For visitors looking for a diversion from the beach, now is the perfect time to book a fishing trip at your local marina.

There was plenty of good fishing out of Little River for last weekend's sixth annual event.

Sixty boats competed in the tournament, which included inshore and offshore divisions at Harbourgate Marina in North Myrtle Beach.

"The purpose of the tournament is to continue to build the Jim Caudle Reef," said Ron McManus, a member of the tournament's board of directors.

Last Friday, in conjunction with Bob Martore, director of DNR's Artificial Reef Program, 100 concrete artificial reef balls were added to the reef, which is located 2 miles southeast of the Little River jetties.

See the adjoining list for the winners of this year's event.
