Gloomy Forecast For 1947
Fishing Season Is Given
By Four Local Fishermen
Anglers View Depth Of Masonboro Inlet
With Distress; Report Less Than Two
Feet Of Water At Bar Tuesday
A gloomy forecast for the 1947 fishing season here
was given by four of New Hanover's top ocean anglers, Tues
day night, who view the waters in Masonboro Inlet with in
creasing alarm as the depth at the bar decreases daily.
Ralph Riggs, Wrightsville Sound party boat official,
declared there was less than two feet of water at the bar at
one time Tuesday.
“There isn’t any way to get any
sized fishing boat to the ocean,
with water as shallow as that,”
he said.
Riggs declared the threat to the
resort’s fishing revenue came
from the U. S. Engineer’s dam
ming of Shinn creek, an issue
which beach residents have been
studying in regard to erosion
damage at Wrightsville Beach
“If Shinn creek was causing
trouble in the Inland Waterway as
the engineers claim, they could
still open it and erect a jetty at
the inlet,” Riggs said.
At the same time, J. O. Hinton,
sporting enthusiast from the
Sound, said he had juSt returned
from Florida fishing waters,
where he landed a seven foot,
eleven inch sailfisb, three inches
short of the record, and pointed
out several inlets on the Florida
coast have government - built
breakwaters to protect the ship
lanes. .
“If Florida can get protection;
for its sports fishing, North Caro
lina should be able to do the same
thing,” Hinton said. He added that
Masonboro’s depth at 011A time re
cently was just three feet.
T. L. Watkins, president of the
New' Handver Fishing club, also
expressed alarm over the situ
ation, commenting at the same
time on the erosion at Fort Fisher,
which he says is cutting off half
of the fishing territory on the
local coast.
“It looks as though the greatest
source of revenue to the Wrights
ville people is endangered," Wat
kins opined. “No good sized party
boats will be able to get to thr
ocean, if something isn't done
They certainly aren’t going to
head toward the sea through
Southport, because the trip is too
Watkins said the fishing attrac
tion here for tourists was a mat
ter of Sion,000 a year, and de
clared that income was threat
ened. He measured the depth of
Masonboro recently at 18 inches
during low tide.
Burke Bridgers, also concerned'
over the situation, partially
cleared up a recent story oi some
valuable fishing records reported
ly lost or stolen from the old Top
sail Club's fishing shack. Bridgers,
who introduced rod and reel fish
ing in the surf in southeastern
North Carolina, said the records
i were not the property of the
NHFC, but belonged to the Top
sail club, and were lost over ten
years ago.
Commenting on the recent pub
licity in favor of tuna fishing here,
Bridgers said his brother-in-law,
Admiral G. F. Farley, ot the U.
S. Coast Guard, who used to com
mand the cutter Modoc here, had
often seen tuna moving north past
the Carolinas in the spring.
“Fishing rodeo officials could do
plenty of good by spending some
of their budget tor the advance
ment of tuna fishing here,” he
said, 'but the tuna deal is a spring
affair, several months oefore the
rodeo gets under way. ’
Riggs asked how there could be
a rodeo if there was no way to
the ocean. An inlet between Caro
lina Beach and Wrightsville Beach
should be opened by the engineers,
he said.
Hinton offered a suggestion to
the campaign for tourist activity
here at fishing season. He said
Florida clubs were awarding pins
for the largest catches, and north
ern sportsmen traveled all the way
to the sunshine state to win an
‘The rodeo should offer pins”
he said.
