Today's Sports

  • Weather improves, spring fishing...

    By Capt. Derek Treffinger

    As I stated in my column last week, all our fishery needed was light winds and a little warm weather, and last week gave us just that.

    The near shore bite has improved with the arrival of Atlantic bonito and big chopper bluefish. Farther offshore, the Gulf Stream bite has picked up significantly as well. The telltale signs of spring are finally among us, and with spring break and Easter upon us it couldn’t have come at a better time.

  • Amen! Garcia surges to Masters...

    By Thomas Ryan Paul

    Up here in the Northeast Kingdom, Palm Sunday finds thick patches of unmelted "corn" snow and muddy roads around my house. Sap buckets hang from the maple trees, which won't leaf out for another three-four weeks. My cross-country skis stand next to my golf bag. Can't use either of them today. So today, after Palm Sunday Mass, there is only one thing to do: roast a chicken, mash potatoes and watch the final round of the Masters.

  • PGA Junior League Golf begins in...

    By Darren deMaille

    One of the initiatives the PGA of America has instituted to grow the game of golf is the PGA Junior League in which PGA professionals make golf fun, social and an inclusive opportunity for boys and girls ages 13 and younger to learn and enjoy the game of golf.  

    Much like other recreational league sports, participants wear numbered jerseys and play on teams with their friends.  A PGA or LPGA professional serves as the coach and is at the forefront of creating a welcoming environment for all to enjoy the game. 

  • Waiting for warm water to...

    By Capt. Derek Treffinger

    Unfortunately, the conclusion of the first week of April has been uneventful here in the Brunswick County fishing world. And once again, the lack of action is related to water temperature and weather.

  • Get ready to go fishing

    Spring break will start for many of our grade school children this coming week. About half of the schools in our area will be out the week before Easter and the other half the week after Easter. This is normally the Brunswick beaches’ first real busy start to the season. The fishing schedule has started to fill up, so don’t wait to book your trip. The weather forecast looks a little wet a couple of days this week, but the weekend is looking good.
