A keeper
Catch of tarpon at North Topsail sets state record
September 19, 2008

SURF CITY - It's not only the biggest tarpon Malcolm Condie ever landed, it's also going down in the record books as the largest tarpon caught in North Carolina.

The tarpon Condie caught officially weighed in on the certified scale at East Coast Sports in Surf City at 193.5 pounds. It measured 89 inches in length and 42 inches in girth.

Condie, of Newport Beach, caught the record-breaking fish at the end of Sea View Fishing Pier in North Topsail Beach Wednesday afternoon while fishing for king mackerel. He crushed the 175 pound record catch made by Jesse Lockowitz of Cape Carteret in 2005.
