fishing with Buddy Hiers on the Joint Venture from Hampton
|Shorey is the man in red with his 2nd place mahi|
The Joint Venture is owned by Wallie Hiers of Hampton and the fishing crew included Buddy Hiers. But it was angler Laura Purdy of Hampton that put Joint Venture into first place with her 22.2-pound dolphin, claiming the first place prize for dolphin and the Lady Angler honors too. The second place results for dolphin goes to Shorey Kingsbury the Penny Dear fishing team for their 19.5-pound dolphin for owner Chip Merriman. Team Parts and Labor from Greenville weighed in an 18.7-pound dolphin to claim third place.
The youth angler honors went to Penn Warner of Walterboro, for his 16.1-pound dolphin caught from Dealer’s Choice, owned by Scott Rizer. There were some tuna and wahoo weighed in, but they did not count since they arrived at the docks after the official weigh-in time. The Marina at Edisto Beach called the 5 p.m. weigh-in time the “One Rule” of the tourney, since Jim Bost was always punctual about getting back to the docks quickly after a day of fishing.
