  • Fall is the best time to go fishing

     Fall is a special time of year here in Brunswick County. Daytime temperatures decrease to a comfortable 75 degrees while a fall North breeze is just enough to cool spectators sampling food at the North Carolina Oyster Festival. Aside from the Oyster Festival out of Ocean Isle, some will often venture up to Wilmington for the Great Waiters Wine Race or live entertainment at Riverfest during the first weekend of October. However, fall is much more than just a festival-filled season for Brunswick County fishermen.

  • Working around wind, waves and showers

     The weather has been a wild roller coaster the last few weeks with a few hurricanes wrecking offshore islands and Gulf Coast states. Our hearts and prayers go out to those in their paths. We all still have a very close eye on Maria, but it appears that she will stay offshore and not make landfall. Maria will still create some rather large swells, which will make it difficult for small boats to navigate the inlets and fish the beach. It has been a great time to be a surfer, though! Despite working around wind, waves and a few showers, the fishing has been spot on for fall.

  • Trojans drop a pair of conference games
