A Fishing Tournament Hatteras Style.....
A bet which had started between Captains fishing one day offshore in the prime of Marlin season off the Hatteras Coastline in 2005, has become a successful Offshore Tournament. In 2010, we had 35 boats and their crew-members which participated in the tournament. Our boat registration was limited in 2011 to 18 boats, do to weather conditions, though we have seen an increase in boats over the years. This growth in participation allowed the community to successfully implement a “grass roots” tournament. This year’s mission is continued growth. Additionally, the board wishes to promote the tournament encouraging a wider range of boaters to participate.
The goal of the tournament is to highlight the excellent offshore Billfish Fishing in Hatteras during the summer season. Additionally, the tournament is not exclusive and invites everyone to participate regardless of fishing experience or boat style.
The Captains, local marinas and businesses have been very receptive about having a tournament in the community during peak Billfish season.
Additionally, the Hatteras Harbor Charter Boat Association, Hatteras Harbor Marina, Village Marina, Oden's Dock, Teach's Lair Marina, Hatteras Landing, The Marlin Club, Frisco Rod & Gun and local restaurants and hotels have all been instrumental in participating and promoting the event for the last ten years. In order to continue the growth of the tournament, all are committed to promoting the event.
With this support, the Hatteras Grand Slam Board of Directors was able to donate money to local charities within the community. Our goal each year is to increase our donation to the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation and our new foundation initiated in 2012 the Captain Bernice Ballance Hatteras Island Educational Fund. We have also donated to the Toys for Tots of Hatteras Island for 4 years. We hope that our donations have made a difference to many of our community.
