  • Get in on the incredible fall...

     Roughly two weeks ago, the fall fishing officially fired off. The king mackerel were slowly starting to creep toward the beach. The gag grouper were starting to show up in the 65-to 80-foot range and the big fall wahoo are being caught along the edge of the gulf stream. This action was great for the end of September. Little did we know how much better the fishing would get in the beginning of October and the weeks to follow.

  • Flounderin’ around

     Eli Morgan, 7, and Bo Bo Morgan, 5, reeled in a nice keeper flounder while fishing with Capt. Buster Gillis of Buster’s Outdoors Guide Service. The Morgan boys and their grandmother, Debbie Edwards, caught seven flounder in the canals and inlets near Holden Beach. The boys had previously “fished the docks and were quite good fishermen,” Gillis said. 

  • New Hanover rides explosive...

     West Brunswick played one of its best offensive games of the season against New Hanover on Oct. 13 at Legion Stadium in Wilmington.

    The Wildcats (8-0, 4-0) struggled to contain the Trojans’ rushing attack for much of the night, but New Hanover’s offense cured those ills in a big way in a 31-point victory.

    New Hanover quarterback Blake Walston threw for 311 yards on just 10 completions and five touchdown strikes to lead the undefeated Wildcats to a 52-21 win over West (2-6, 2-2).

  • Price earns player of the week...

     West Brunswick's Nashawn Price hauled in a 33-yard touchdown reception against Hoggard during a high school football game Oct. 6. Price earned North Carolina Farm Bureau's Player of the Week award for his effort.
