The 27th annual Ocracoke Island Surf Fishing Tournament was held the last two days. Sixty-nine teams participated, competing for points (based on size of the fish), most fish caught, and largest fish caught.

I don't know all of the details (maybe one of our readers does), but one 30 1/4 inch striper was landed Thursday morning.

The catch-and-release event ended yesterday evening with a pig pickin' (B-B-Q, cole slaw, potatoes, and black-eyed-peas) and awarding of trophies and prizes at the Community Center.

Our latest Ocracoke Newsletter celebrates colorful islander Don Wood (1936-1998). You can read it here:

    Cole slaw all cole slaws are not created equally -- how would you describe an Ocracoke Island coleslaw ?? and while on the subject of food the Bar-b-que sauce is it mustard based?? do tell.

  2. I don't have an Ocracoke cole slaw recipe...or know what's in the Fishing Tournament BBQ sauce. Maybe some of our readers do.
