  • Decisions about when to go on...

     If fishing runs in your veins, now is the time to be planning that fishing trip. The availability of baitfish is unbelievable right now. Mullet and menhaden are thick from the waterways to the beachfront. Several of the shallow creeks are full of shrimp, too. The predator fish are lurking and the action should get stronger as more cold fronts pass through out area. We just experienced our first good cool down and the fish are starting to stack up.

  • Veterans Memorial becoming a...

     The is an awesome place to live. Brunswick County is filled with the most generous, caring people in the world. There is a real sense of community service and patriotism here.

    Two weeks ago, 10 of our area golf pros played 100 holes of golf in one day to raise money for Folds of Honor. Each week there are charity golf events for every cause from breast cancer, to Communities in Schools to hospice care. It’s impossible for me to cover them all, but I try to single out a few each year to showcase the length and breadth of our charity golf tournaments.

     Lockwood Folly has been hosting fundraisers for breast cancer since 1997. The Play for Pink ladies golf tournament will take place Oct. 23.  The men’s Play for Pink golf tournament is on Oct. 29. The annual Play for Pink card party and luncheon took place on April 4.

  • 100 holes of golf for a good...

     Labor Day weekend began with a totally awesome display of golf and patriotism at Rivers Edge Golf Course.

    Ten PGA pros from our area pledged to play 100 holes of golf in one day — and, by golly, they did.

    The beneficiary of this marathon golf event was the Folds of Honor Foundation, which provides scholarships and assistance to the spouses and children of those killed or disabled in service to America.

  • Fish with an attitude

     In all sports, your attitude makes a difference in how you perform. Often we overload our heads with all the negative issues facing us on the water. There is nothing wrong with recognizing the conditions that make a day challenging. Just don’t let that bring you down. Stare down a challenge and rise to the occasion. We often surprise ourselves when we grit our teeth and move forward. Confidence is built on stepping up and overcoming those challenges. How do you overcome weather conditions, boat traffic and other bad attitudes on the water?

  • A new area may yield a better...

     Whether from a boat or land, fishing has been tough this summer for Brunswick County. The king mackerel are scarce, the Spanish mackerel have seemed to set their dinnertime and the mahi mahi are father offshore than usual. Even with the stable weather we have had, the fish do not want to bite for long periods of time.

  • BCC finishes 2-1 in weekend...

     BOLIVIA — The Brunswick Community College volleyball team played three matches over the weekend at the Dinah E. Gore Fitness & Aquatics Center gym.

    Against Guildford Tech on Sunday, BCC won 25-27, 25-22, 25-16, 25-22.

    BCC trailed 8-1 in the first and fought off two game points before losing.

    The second game was tied 22-22 before BCC gained a point off an errant serve. An errant Guilford hit and a kill by Katrina Brown won the game.

  • Reels are starting to sing again

    By Capt. Derek Treffinger

     The king mackerel fishing has finally started to improve this week. Good catches of 15- to 30-pound fish were coming from hard bottom areas and ledges in 60 to 75 feet of water. This can only mean one thing — the kings are on the move back inshore. Cooler air and water temperatures will trigger these fish to move near shore. Once the water temperatures reaches the ideal 72 to 76 degrees, there is almost a guaranteed bite somewhere between the beach and shark hole.

  • Questions, questions about how...

     Delane and Jessica Edwards from the Whiteville area fished with me Friday, Aug. 22. Delane Edwards started right out of the gate with the usual questions, “How long you been doing this, Captain?” “Do you think we will catch anything today, Captain?” “How old are you, Captain?” “Where you from, Captain?”
