Y'all may remember we had a good thread on this site after Jerry (NCFA) hired Barta to write for Tradewinds.  There was discussion of whether the recreational community would continue to support the Boys and Girls Club Tournament given Barta's ties to the NC Fisheries Association.

That thread has either been removed or rolled off...it is possible my search skills are lacking.

It seems Barta is no longer involved with the tournament.

Where I had a problem is you can't have a tournament supporting "the kids" and "sustainable fisheries" while being on the payroll at the NC Fisheries Association. Ain't happening. Kind of reminds me of the "recreational" tournament that the NCFA tried to throw last year.

I was looking at Barta's Facebook page and saw this pic...wow...I remember those fish.  You could catch them under the Oregon Inlet bridge.  The bridge tunnel was the most consistent spot.

Until we stop killing our juveniles in the shrimp trawl fishery, we will continue to have truncated age classes and never rebuild the weakfish stock.

If Barta ever wants to see gray trout (weakfish to you Yankees) again like these, he better get off Jerry's payroll and start fighting to end the highly unsustainable fishery of inshore shrimp trawling in the Pamlico Sound-

Oregon inlet live spot. Way back of Hatteras inlet where it dropped to 15-20 feet thanks to old guy Capt Albert. Best at bay for me(Capt Jack) ways under low rise on buck tails at night till word got out. My kids loved cape channel behind Frisco Also bay and oyster where you jig for mile and not lose the school. Gone now but good memories.

From his FB page-

“This is Travis H. Brown, the admin and agent of Capt. Tred Barta’s Facebook account. Many are now learning about his passing in an automotive accident in Canada. Until we have further details to share as directed from his family, we are not commenting further.”
