The Charleston Inshore Anglers fishing club held their annual April Sheepshead tournament. Organizer Robert Olsen said everyone had good luck fishing, and his Knot At Work charter managed to catch 100 sheepshead for the day, with one fishweighing 7.62 pounds, good enough for 10th place for angler Allen Ford. The first place sheepshead went to Gary Wilson for a 10.68-pound brute. Second place went to Lloyd Green for a 8.80-pound convict fish and third place went to Steve Joy for a 8.22-pound sheepshead. Olsen's Knot at Work charter also "won" the dogfish division with angler Eric Smith weighing-in a 1.74-pound specimen. The tournament had 142 entrants, and lots of fish were caught by everyone, though most of the top ten fish seemed to come from the 4KI reef. Olsen said, "After the first place fish was decided, the next nine spots were all within about a pound of each other."
