Team Gas Money, a local Beaufort team, won the first major kingfish tournament for the 2011 season in South Carolina. The Tailwalker Marine Offshore Challenge is a kingfish tournament held in Georgetown and sponsored by the Southern Kingfish Association. The tournament was held on June 10 and 11. The winning fish caught by Team Gas Money weighed 40 pounds and was caught 30 miles offshore between Charleston and Georgetown.  Wes Chappell was the angler on the fish. Keith Lewis brought the fish to gaff as soon as he surfaced and was in range with a great extension. Collins Lane was the driver of the boat and James Lane is the team and boat captain.
