Catching The Big One!

One very talented young fisherman has the Crystal Coast buzzing again, after reeling in a whopper this week. Last year, our Country Rover Alan Covey caught teenager Jesse Lockowitz fighting this 90 and a half pound tarpon onto the Bogue Inlet pier. Well, a year later, Jesse's topped that catch, big time. Wednesday night, he fought another big tarpon on the same pier, but this time it took three gaffs and six grown men to haul it over the rail. How big was it? It’s a new state record weighing in at 175 pounds!
