The U.S. Open King Mackerel Tournament began over thirty five years ago, when a small group of community leaders met and decided that they needed an event to showcase the great fall fishing in the Southport-Oak Island area. Today, the U.S. Open King Mackerel Tournament attracts over 400 boats annually and is one of the largest kingfish tournaments on the east coast. The tournament has a guaranteed prize structure with over $200,000 in prizes in 2016 with 464 boats.
