    By Capt. Derek Treffinger

    March can be an extremely fickle month both with fishing and weather. Many of the local fishermen call this month and April transition months because of how much changes within the fishing world between the last cold front and that first day your car air-conditioner is on full blast. Typically, local fishermen spend their time maintaining and upgrading their boats yet eagerly wait for the next calm day to make the run to the Gulf Stream.

    By Capt. Derek Treffinger

    Throughout this past week, many of us probably had to remind ourselves that we do in fact live in North Carolina and not South Florida. One could expect these temperatures in March and April, but 82 degrees in the middle of February is incredible. With how warm the weather has been, many Brunswick County fishermen ventured out on the water to try to shake off some cabin fever.

  • Flounder creel limits reduced

    This winter has been extremely mild with beautiful weather and well above average temperatures with the exception of a few cold days in December. The fishing world has been relative quiet in the backwater, but the offshore fishery continues to make headlines with huge bluefin tuna being caught close to shore and a good wahoo bite in the Gulf Stream.

  • Spring fishing is in the air

    By Capt. Derek Treffinger

    No matter whether you rely on a groundhog or an almanac, it’s safe to say everyone got his dose of spring last weekend. With temperatures in the low 70s, many visitors and residents ventured outside to take in some warm sunshine we all have longed for. Some took this opportunity to go hiking, some took a seat outside at their favorite restaurant, and luckily some finally found it warm enough to venture offshore to do some fishing.

    During every golf clinic I run, I begin the session by setting the tone for learning and motivation. I am constantly reminding my students to enjoy the moment and never take anything for granted. You never know what is around the corner, so count your blessings.
