  • Redfish provide day-to-day action

    Water temperatures are rising slowly and early spring season anglers are finding the redfish just as active and willing to bite as they have been all winter. The amazingly strong and consistent red drum bite has been the big (and really, the only) inshore fishing story in lower North Carolina all winter and they are off and running for spring.

  • Weather is improving; fishing, too

    It is finally beginning to feel like spring. It feels good to see daylight at 7 p.m., not to mention the 60-degree days we had this past weekend. According to the forecasts, this week will bring more 60s and 70s by the weekend. This winter has dragged on and on; between dismal weather and dismal business conditions, it has been hard to muster up the optimism to prepare for the spring and summer. But all that is behind us now; time to look forward and be optimistic.

  • Bruce Eck: Loving the Grand Strand and his job as a club fitter

    I really enjoy meeting people who move here from faraway places, jump in and enjoy their lives with great enthusiasm. 

    One such man is Bruce Eck, the new owner of Little River Custom Golf. 

    Bruce recently bought the business from Ken and Margie Greene. Ken had been a club-fitting icon in this area for many years but felt it was time to retire and enjoy the fruits of his labor.
