     If fishing runs in your veins, now is the time to be planning that fishing trip. The availability of baitfish is unbelievable right now. Mullet and menhaden are thick from the waterways to the beachfront. Several of the shallow creeks are full of shrimp, too.

     The is an awesome place to live. Brunswick County is filled with the most generous, caring people in the world. There is a real sense of community service and patriotism here.

Each week there are charity golf events for every cause from breast cancer, to Communities in Schools to hospice care. It’s impossible for me to cover them all, but I try to single out a few each year to showcase the length and breadth of our charity golf tournaments.
