It has become a tradition at Kure Beach. The 11th Annual Cape Fear Disabled Sportsman Fishing Tournament got underway early Friday morning.

About 300 people attended this year’s event. It is open to anyone with a disability to come and join a free day of fishing, friends, food, and fun.

Tournament participant Dustin Templeton said, “I think it’s a good opportunity for the disabled kids.”

“Today’s been going super-duper. People are coming in from as far as Fayetteville, Whiteville, and Jacksonville,” said tournament director Dawson Frueler.

Participants were provided with fishing equipment, and t-shirts. Tacey Mintz with the Wilmington Wave Group won the tournament, with a black drum she caught.

Organizers said the event would not be possible without generous donations from the community.
