  • Three resources to make offshore...

    Have you seen the weather forecast? 75 degrees?

    I had to double take while watching the news recently because this week Brunswick County is forecast to have daily high temperatures in the high 70s. Because of all this warm, calm weather, many of my fishing friends and other local anglers have contacted me to tell me they plan to fish in the Gulf Stream this week. Every conversation consists of, “You going this week?” or, “Where’s the water at?”

  • Trojans split two games in...

    SHALLOTTE — A new calendar month proved just what West Brunswick’s Trojans needed as they shook off a rocky start to the softball season. After dropping their season opener 9-2 to non-conference foe Trask, the Trojans responded in stoic fashion with a rugged hard-fought win March 1, beating South Columbus 3-2.

    The low-scoring affair turned into a pitching exhibition between West’s Morgan Beeler and South Columbus Alexis Suggs.  

  • Forecast indicates it’s time to...

    The forecast hasn’t looked this pretty in a while. Temperatures are on the steady rise, nearly topping 70 degrees this week. Sure, a few cloudy, cool days are in the mix with a slight chance of rain. The rain chance is supposed to be significantly less than our last several events. This whole winter it seemed as if the rain would never stop falling. I am ready for some springlike weather and it looks as if we are going to get a few shots. I just hope it stays this way and this is not just a tease.

  • Red-hot wahoo action up north

    After consecutive weeks of cold, dreary weather, everyone in Brunswick County is ready for spring. This season may only bring warm weather and comfortable beach days for some, yet for hunters and fishermen, it means something different.

    About the first or second week of March is when I make my seasonal transition. To me it begins with turkey season. Breaking out my diaphragm call and scouting to see where a giant tom may be roosting. This process varies for many and I’ll admit much of my success is from reading how experienced hunters target big turkeys.

  • Farmstead/Meadowlands site of...

    I am so excited. This year’s Tournament of Champions will take place Nov. 12-13 at the beautiful Farmstead/Meadowlands golf courses. This marks the 13th year of this prestigious event in which the club champions (men and women) from each of our clubs battle it out to decide who is the best of the best.

    The format is two days of medal play. No handicaps allowed. It is fun to watch and each year the event attracts more and more spectators.
