Town Seeks Committee Members for New Emerald Isle Fishing Tournament


Under the leadership of Commissioner Mark Taylor, the Town is working to establish a new Emerald Isle Fishing Tournament in 2019.  The new tournament is tentatively planned for late summer / early fall 2019, primarily as a boat-based tournament targeting spanish mackerel and flounder, with event proceeds dedicated for future Bogue Inlet dredging efforts and college scholarships.  The goal for the new tournament is to develop a successful and enjoyable fishing tournament for fishermen in our community, and also to lure additional visitors to Emerald Isle.  

The Town is seeking volunteers interested in serving on the organizing committee.  If you are interested in serving, please email Rhonda Ferebee, Town Clerk, at  to express your interest no later than May 25.
