A fishing tournament will be this weekend on a Brunswick County island with potentially hundreds of dollars in prize money.
There’s nothing unusual about that, except this tournament was organized by two 8-year-olds.
The first Tripp and Austin’s Backwater Battle is set from 6 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, April 26. The captain’s meeting will be Friday, April 25, at 7 p.m. at the Holden Beach Marina.
Boundaries are from the Little River swing bridge to the Southport waterfront. No ocean fishing is allowed.
