Chris Hawley, president of the Waccamaw chapter of CCA, and avid angler has sent me a report from Murrell's Inlet. Actually, he loyally sends me a Murrell's Inlet fishing report for me to write up for the Charleston Mercury. Hawley's Team Seabatical caught the fish that earned them First Place in the Murrell's Inlet Pelagic Shootout with an wahoo / dolphin aggregate weight of 82.5-pounds. Their Hoo went 57.2-pounds and their dolphin went 26.3-pounds. Second place in the tournament went to Instigator for a wahoo / dolphin aggregate weight of 62.1-pounds. Third place went to Stretched Out for an aggregate weight of 58.8-pounds. Youth Angler award went to William Mockton aboard Mirage with a 19.8-pound mahi.
