    The nights have continued to get colder, bringing the water temperatures below 50 degrees in many of our backwater areas. The rain also continues to fall, as each passing front brings us mild moist air. Even with water temperatures hovering in the upper 40s, speckled trout seek shelter in many of our shallow water areas during the coldest part of the winter. Why? There are several theories why speckled trout will continue to go into shallow water this time of year.

  • Golf getaway to the Crystal Coast

     For the past few years, I’ve gone on a gal’s golf trip to the Crystal Coast and we’ve had a blast. ­There’s wonderful golf, beautiful beaches, old coastal towns to explore, historic sites and fabulous seafood.

    Where is the Crystal Coast?

    It begins just north of Wilmington and runs up to the Outer Banks; 85 miles of unspoiled coastline between the Outer Banks and our own beloved Brunswick Islands. It’s a fabulous getaway if you don’t want to fly or drive long distances.

     It is safe to say 2015 has started off abnormally cold. Temperatures last week plummeted to below freezing and dipped into the single digits in some places. These temperatures caused Brunswick County residents to stay hunkered down in the warmth of their homes most of the weekend. In addition to most folks opting to stay inside, it seemed the fish made the executive decision to do the same.
