  • Mixed golf can be fun

     Mixed golf can be a lot of fun, or it can also be a pain.

    I’ve played in a lot of mixed events and I’ve seen it all. Some golf tournaments were absolute nightmares; others were a lot of fun.

  • Scouting your fishing area is...

     Conditions are forever changing in our waters around the Brunswick islands. We have inlets filling in and inlets getting dredged that will move sand, making it important to learn new navigation routes this coming season. Freshwater runoff will drop salinity levels and stain the water, possibly moving fish to other areas. Strong currents and strong winds will stir up silt in the water, making it nearly impossible for fish to breath. It will be important to ride around your favorite fishing areas looking for these changing conditions for better success this year.
