Cpl. Shamara Spurlock, also of MACG-28, caught all sharks.

Farmer Styron, the captain of the Crystal Coast Lady, said it was great to be around all of the personnel from Cherry Point.

“I spent more of my life in the service,” Styron said as he walked around the boat helping anglers take the hooks out of the fish. “Seeing them made me jealous. I wish I had my time to do over.
