  • Beach action increases as temps...

    Every year, a cool, crisp north wind begins to blow in Brunswick County. The air becomes lighter, pumpkins appear on doorsteps and you can bet that a big king mackerel will be caught off Ocean Crest Pier. For some, these seasonal characteristics indicate that leaves will need to be picked up and Halloween costumes will need to be picked out. However, most Brunswick County fishermen know the leaves are not going anywhere and his or her costume will include a good pair of rubber boots and fishing bibs. It is safe to say fall is almost here.

  • Flooding and fishing issues

    I have received several phone calls and emails concerning the future status on our fishery after all the freshwater runoff. The honest answer is I really don’t know. We have gotten a tremendous amount of rain. There is water from inland flooding that will also have to make its way to the ocean. It probably will take weeks for things to get back to normal. The only good news I have is that this is the fall season. The big bull redfish were thick along the beach before this crazy event happened. I plan to go to the beach as soon as the rain clears to check things out.
