  • York catches five keeper flounder

     Greg York, of High Point, is pictured with five nice keeper flounder he caught while fishing on the "Katch Buster" with Captain Buster Gillis of Buster’s Outdoors Guide Service.  They were fishing in the Intracoastal Waterway, canals and inlets not far from the wildlife ramp at Ocean Isle Beach.  Of the 15 flounders they caught, the pair was able to keep the five pictured here.

  • Two county youth, First Tee...
  • Fishing in a pressure cooker

     The July fishing season is in full swing and the hot weather has shown up on time. Water temperatures are between 85 and 90 degrees depending on the time of day and tide you are fishing. Low tide in the early afternoon may have water temperatures exceed 90 degrees. One would think the fish would go deep looking for cooler temperatures or hide in the shade under the docks. Some fish are looking for refuge during times of rest, but the bait is thick in the shallow hot creeks where many of them must go to feed.

  • Meadowlands Golf Club...

     Meadowlands Golf Club is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. The 18-hole course is located in Brunswick County and is located near the North Carolina/South Carolina border.

  • Yuricek attends North Carolina...

     Abel Yuricek, a rising eighth-grader at Shallotte Middle School, attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill basketball camp in June.
