Fishing at Ocracoke, 1937

From The Beaufort News, Sept. 30, 1937

Stanley Wahab who is developing Wahab Village on Ocracoke Island is advertising in the News and Observer an October Fishing contest on the island with a series of prizes, cups, tackle and fishing equipment generally, offered as prizes. The rates for guides in the Wahab sponsored contest is $9 per day for one person and guide, $7 per day for two persons and guide and $6 per day for party of three and guide…. And incidentally the October fishing, if weather is favorable, will be good. It always is at Ocracoke. 

This month's Ocracoke Newsletter is an essay by Philip Howard explaining why he decided to stay on the island as Hurricane Florence approached. You can read it here:
