Rich Novak (right) ise of a catch. Novak conducts infor- mal interviews to see how the tourna- ment affects the economy. He tabulates preliminary figures in his head and comes up with good results. The tournament created signif- icant incomes for motels, restaurants, tackle shops and grocers in the area. 9 a.m. A bell jingles overhead as Jim Bahen steps through the door of a Wrightsville Beach marine supply store. "Frog, are you ready for the tour- nament?" the store's owner asks. Bahen nods. His raspy voice has earned him his nickname, but his knowledge of the fisheries has gained him respect. He's stopped by to see how many anglers are expected for the Wrights- ville Beach King Mackerel Tourna- ment that begins the next day.
