U.S. Open King Mackerel Tournament
Address: 606 W West St. , Southport, NC 28461
The U.S. Open King Mackerel Tournament began over thirty five years ago, when a small group of community leaders met and decided that they needed an event to showcase the great fall fishing in the Southport-Oak Island area. Today, the U.S. Open King Mackerel Tournament attracts 400 boats annually and is one of the largest kingfish tournaments on the east coast. The tournament has a guaranteed prize structure with over $200,000 in prizes in 2016.
PriceRange: Spectators Free. Boat entry fee.
