  • Duncans make a nice catch

     Joel Lovette and Debbie and Artie Duncan show off two of the 10 flounder they caught while fishing with Capt. Buster Gillis of Buster’s Outdoors Guide Service.  They were fishing using artificial bait in the Intracostal Waterway and in creeks and canals near the Ocean Isle Wildlife area.

  • Boaters can never be too careful...

     Often times, people overlook the dangers involved with watersports activities. Whether it’s fishing, wakeboarding, jet skiing or hunting, unfortunate events do occur on the water and without proper education and experience, an incredibly fun day on the water can turn to a disaster within minutes. Unfortunately, this past week I experienced this good to bad transition first hand while working at the Ocean Isle Fishing Center (OIFC).

    North Brunswick senior Jayhlen Washington has made winning state championships about as normal as waking up in the morning and taking a shower.

    The senior track and field runner and jumper has won nine individual state championships and three more outdoor track and field state titles as a member of the Scorpion dynasty.

  • Tough weather produces even...

     Over the Memorial Day weekend, the offshore action has gone from one extreme to another. Last week (May 22-26) we were experiencing a typical, late spring offshore pattern as fishermen were having success with both bottom fishing and top water action in almost any depth range. From mahi-mahi near the gulf stream to Spanish Mackerel along the beachfront, the fishing remained consistent. Then like a light switch, strong winds swept across our coast, leaving nothing but dirty, churned water behind.

  • Cecil and Craven catch three...

     Jeff Cecil and Mike Craven from the Charlotte area show three keeper flounder they caught while fishing with Capt. Buster Gillis of Buster’s Outdoors Guide Service. These keeper flounder were all in the 18- to 20-inch size range. They caught 16 flounder while fishing the Intracoastal Waterway, canals and channels in the Ocean Isle Beach area and using artificial bait.
