Pier fishing has gone to the dogs
On a normal January day,
Johnnie Mercer’s Pier has only
a few anglers fishing for puffers, along with the occasional
beachgoer who wants to take
in the spectacular, elevated
view of the Wrightsville Beach.
However, this day was unusually warm for January 28, making it perfect for hosting a fishing tournament.
“It’s the earliest pier fishing
tournament in the country,”
said Al Baird. “We have 166
anglers fishing 226 rods. It’s our
biggest turnout, ever.”
The Mercer’s Pier Dogfish
Tournament was started seven
years ago by dedicated pier
anglers, who wanted some fishing action around the time of
the Super Bowl. Dogfish are one
of the few large fish biting in
the dead of winter, so they
chose spiny and smooth dogfish to target, although most
anglers regard them as a nuisance catch.
Baird, who lives in Fort Mill,
S.C., has been the hosting the
tournament for the past four
years. He is the founder of the
North Carolina Fishing Pier
Society and co-founder and cochairman of the North Carolina Public Access Foundation,
Incorporated. Both organizations are dedicated to preserving North Carolina’s fishing
pier heritage.
“Twenty percent of the participants are NCPFS members,” Baird said. “They found
out about the tournament
through Facebook and they’ve
come from all over.”
Ian Grandy flew from New
York on his birthday. He was
fishing with his lifelong pal,
Joe Snavely, of Fayetteville.
“Joe called and said I was
coming,” Grandy said. “So here
I am. He picked me up at the
Raleigh airport early this
morning. The plane ticket cost
$470, but it’s worth it to go fishing with my friend.”
“I fish here three times a
month,” Snavely said. “That’s
how I found out about the tournament.”
The tournament began at 1

However, like eight of the 12
dogfish landed, Horne’s firstplace fish was released according to the tournament rules.
But this year, Sarah Hines, a
UNCW undergraduate student,
kept four dogfish for a research
project. They were her first
study specimens.
“I want to be involved in

unknown but is suspected to be
due to prior infections with bacteria or viruses. Bacterial prostatitis is caused by bacteria coming
from the urethra or bladder and
getting into the prostate gland.
Men with prostatitis will experience a persistent pain between
the scrotum and rectum and may
also have pain in the groin or
genitals. Often there is pain with
urination and the victim may
notice frequency and urgency of
urination.Theremayalsobepainful ejaculation.
If the cause is bacterial there is
often fever and chills, nausea and
vomiting, and flu-like symptoms.
If the acute prostatitis is severe it
may require hospitalization. If the
prostatitis is chronic it may result in repeated urinary tract infections.
The diagnosis is usually made
on the basis of the symptoms, tenderness of the prostate gland dur-
ing the rectal exam, and a study
or the urine under the microscope. If the cases is unusual or
severe, you may need to see a
urologist or specialist in urinary
tract problems for additional studies and evaluation. This may include an examination of the fluid
from the prostate, cystoscopy
(where the urethra and bladder
are examined by a light inserted
through the urethra), or imaging
such as a CT scan or MRI scan.
Occasionally a biopsy of the prostate gland may be needed to make
sure there is no cancer causing
the symptoms.
Prostatitis does not increase
the risk of cancer of the prostate.
There is no known way to prevent prostatitis. Bacterial prostatitis is treated with antibiotics
with a course of treatment lasting
4 to 16 weeks. Nonbacterial prostatitis is treated with pain relievers, physical therapy, antibiotics
and medications to relax the bladder and help urination. Avoiding
alcohol, caffeine and spicy foods,
getting regular exercise and using a cushion to sit for long periods are also helpful.
If a bacterial prostatitis is not
treated it may lead to sepsis where
the bacteria get into the blood
stream, infection of the testicles,
abscesses in the prostate and infertility.
If you experience pain with
urination or pain in the scrotal
area, schedule an evaluation with
your doctor.
