Bluewater Promotions returns to Charleston with their one-day King Mackerel Tournament, fished out of Sullivan's Island with cooperation coming from the Sullivan's Island Fire Department. The weigh-in will take place at the SIFD's private boat ramp, and the awards celebration will take place at their Fish Fry shack. Lowcountryoutdoors.com was graciously allowed by Captain Jack Bracewell to pre-fish the tournament with Eren's Addiction Too, and found the seas to be unsettled with four-foot waves and a deep ocean swell. The king bite was off, either due to the conditions or due to the lack of bait located, but tournament day fishing on 7/25 will produce a winning king for one lucky boat - and it's likely that a smoker king or two will be produced. Check back later for the results.
