A big catch down by Carolina Beach could reel in a hefty prize for area fisherman in the 30th Annual East Coast Got Em’ On Classic King Mackerel Tournament.

More than two hundred fishing teams signed up for the tournament.

Weigh-ins began Saturday and continue through Sunday.

All the money raised from the tournament goes right back to the community. It serves as a fund raiser for the Carolina and Kure Beach Fire Departments.

“We give all our money back that we earn… so that’s what this is about, giving back. This community is very big on giving back,” said Tom Russell, the tournament’s co-director.

The first prize for the biggest catch is $20,000. So far the biggest mackerel was a 44 pounder.
