  • Inshore fishing heating up in...

    Despite the colder weather and periods of rain, inshore fishing has really heated up in December. All the usual winter species are in place and biting, and fish continue a late-season surge that has them on the move and feeding.

    I got into the black drum last week at Sunset Beach. After nightfall I could have had all the 12- to 14- inch black drum I wanted. Caught about 20 until they tired me out, and kept eight for supper.

  • Outstanding fishing foreseen for...

    The long anticipated arrival of the first bluefin tuna catches of the year are finally here. This past weekend the first giant bluefin of the year were landed out of Morehead City. Reports are the water is still a bit on the warm side, but the recent cool weather will certainly drive more fish to our waters.

    BOILING SPRING LAKES—Ashley beat South Brunswick 50-45 in a nonconference high school boys’ basketball game Nov. 1.

    LELAND—A poor-shooting first half cost the North Brunswick boys’ varsity basketball team in a 54-39 loss Friday night to the Ashley Screaming Eagles. The Eagles, led by Reid Clark’s 14 points, jumped out to a 10-1 lead and the Scorpions never recovered.

    North looked flat during the game after winning its first two games of the season.

    “It was hard to control them in practice this week,” North coach Travis Lemanski said. “Their heads got a little big after the blowout victory against East Columbus.”
