  • Fishing heats up with calm, mild...

    January can be an extremely tough month for Brunswick County fishermen. Air temperatures are frigid, marine conditions are predominantly rough, and “honey-do” lists’ seem to increase every time you tinker with fishing tackle. Yet somewhere past the howling winds and dismal days there is hope that a day will come to head offshore again. Not knowing what the targeted species may be, but simply to push the throttles forward and head out to the blue water.

  • Cart-path-only: Aggravation

    This past year has been one of the wettest in the history of Brunswick County. Many courses have been cart-path-only for weeks and weeks. This slows play because golfers must leave their carts on the path, walk to their ball (which may be on the far side of the fairway) and then hit.

    A good tip is to take three clubs to the ball. The club you think you need, plus one longer and one shorter. Then you won’t have to walk back and forth if the distance is too long or short for what you thought

  • What fishing boat power do you...

    What in the world can a fisherman write about in this kind of weather? The possibility of a nasty winter storm just squeaked by our coastline last weekend. Several areas north of us recorded the second worst snow storm in their history. I expect we will see a few more opportunities for a nasty winter storm along our coastline before April. The good news is that the forecast for Feb. 1 shows highs in the mid-60s. Those kinds of temperatures just might put a few people on the water. What can you expect to encounter out there?
