Ladies, gather your fishing poles and your finest crew members. In early August it's time to fish for a cure at the Alice Kelly Memorial Billfish Tournament. This Outer Banks annual event, whose home base is Pirate's Cove Marina, invites teams of women to come out for a weekend of fishing and good times. Participants start the event with registration of competitors and teams and wrap up the evening with a cookout. There is live music, a team costume contest, boat decorating and more. The second day is dedicated to fishing. Participants spend most of their time out on the water and return in the evening for judging and awards.
