WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — The StriperFest fun begins Friday night and continues through Saturday. Friday you can bid on fishing gear and tackle, beach vacations, adventure tours, unique art pieces and more, while enjoying a delicious catered dinner.
But the main attraction is in Downtown Wilmington Saturday. StriperFest is home to a tag & release tournament giving the Cape Fear River Watch valuable information on the stocks and the movements of the striped bass stock in the Cape Fear River. Data is collected on every fish caught and sonic tags are inserted into striped bass. These tags enable them to monitor the movements of the fish year round.
Not to mention, there are free fun educational activities for kids ages 3-13. Catch all the details on this fishing event when you watch the live interview from GMC with Kemp Burdette.
