     The North Carolina Oyster Festival was this past weekend at Ocean Isle Beach. The Oyster Festival is the last big event that brings a crowd to our beach. The beach-going foot traffic will steadily decline from this point. The waterways have been quiet throughout the week, but the weekends have been super busy. The weather finally is making a turn to fall conditions with cool nights and north winds. The bull redfish run should continue for at least another week and then the speckled trout bite should be active.

    The Carolina coast is an awesome area. Near Virginia, we have the Outer Banks, 200 miles of barrier islands with lots of great beaches, history (the Wright Brothers flew their first airplane in Kitty Hawk) and golf courses.

    Coming down the coast, we have Cape Fear, our very own Brunswick Islands and then the huge sprawling Myrtle Beach, S.C., complex with more than 100 golf courses, lots of shows, amusements, shopping and fabulous beaches.
