  • Get in on the incredible fall fishing

     Roughly two weeks ago, the fall fishing officially fired off. The king mackerel were slowly starting to creep toward the beach. The gag grouper were starting to show up in the 65-to 80-foot range and the big fall wahoo are being caught along the edge of the gulf stream. This action was great for the end of September. Little did we know how much better the fishing would get in the beginning of October and the weeks to follow.

  • Flounderin’ around

     Eli Morgan, 7, and Bo Bo Morgan, 5, reeled in a nice keeper flounder while fishing with Capt. Buster Gillis of Buster’s Outdoors Guide Service. The Morgan boys and their grandmother, Debbie Edwards, caught seven flounder in the canals and inlets near Holden Beach. The boys had previously “fished the docks and were quite good fishermen,” Gillis said. 

  • New Hanover rides explosive plays to 52-21 win over Trojans

     West Brunswick played one of its best offensive games of the season against New Hanover on Oct. 13 at Legion Stadium in Wilmington.

    The Wildcats (8-0, 4-0) struggled to contain the Trojans’ rushing attack for much of the night, but New Hanover’s offense cured those ills in a big way in a 31-point victory.

    New Hanover quarterback Blake Walston threw for 311 yards on just 10 completions and five touchdown strikes to lead the undefeated Wildcats to a 52-21 win over West (2-6, 2-2).

  • A high school football game to remember

     If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a billion times. There’s just something special about high school athletics.

    Exhibit A? Last Friday night’s high school football game between the winless North Brunswick Scorpions and much improved South Brunswick Cougars at Jack Campbell Stadium in Boiling Spring Lakes.

    I wasn’t quite sure what to make of the game before it was played. South dominated North in two quarters in the BB&T Jamboree three months ago, but teams are much different (and better) than they were at that stage.

  • Wilmington crew wins 2017 Fall Brawl King Classic

     The 2017 Yellowfin/Yamaha Fall Brawl King Classic had nearly 300 boats enter the competition, but only one reeled in the winning king mackerel.

    Austin Eubank of Wilmington, earned a first-place finish in the annual event by snagging a 45.60-pound king mackerel aboard “Clearly Hooked.” The team won the heaviest fish competition by 1.60 pounds over Grady Gaston Hughes.

    The third-place finisher was Chris Carroll of Forest, Va., who reeled in a 43.05-pound king.
