Default 2020 US Open King Mackerel Tourney

Looking forward to another year of fishing the US Open. Let's get a roll call going and I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on the implemented changes this year (COVID and hurricane related).

Wonít be as festive but from what Iíve been seeing, fishing should be awesome. Lots of bait and much cooler than last few years. I like where the weigh in will be. Itís awesome that the organizers worked hard to pull it off!

Beers are as important as fresh Pogies!

Weíve got waterway docks so plenty of water flow... if temps keep dropping. Last year we penned up a ton of bait and they fried like KFC chicken. A few guys Iv known sink pins off the beach but I donít think it will be that drastic this year. Itís been cold this week. Mullet run is starting to thin out so easier for the eyes the morning of after staying up all night before day 1

Im right by Dutchman creek. Iíve done some short term penning. Donít trust the gator or the two legged creatures enough to float a real bait pen there. Maybe I will find a dock. Great luck, guys!

Weathers been looking great since the tournament ( shalotte tournament) was postponed to next weekend. Now you can pick between the dreaded East wind Saturday or good chance of rain Sunday. Hope the weather for the open is good.

oh yeah, I know what ya mean😆 Been in same shoes maybe same guy.
Strong west wind and bait gone south I donít think oak island will be the place. Great weather forecast but will be muddy muddy inshore. Bait and fish from Shalotte to myrtle. GOOD water there also. Fish were caught here today but when last batch of pogies got gone it shut down. Stacked up south of here.
