  • Area fishermen are on the spot...

    Local anglers continue on the spot watch, as catches of the popular panfish to the north have been excellent and Brunswick County has seen its share of on and off again spot runs. The spot and a long-expected speckled trout size limit change are the biggest inshore fishing news this week.

  • King mackerel bite comes alive...

    After weeks of talking, it finally happened. The annual Cape Fear ship channel king mackerel bite occurred over the weekend, colliding with the more than 450 participants in the U.S Open King Mackerel tournament. Every year, it’s like flipping a light switch as the kings suddenly show up as if out of nowhere.

  • Golf action

    Stanley Grab, 93, of Little River, S.C., plays golf every Tuesday with the Calabash 3 Putts. Grab, who will be 94 in November, shot a 94 in a recent round at Brierwood. Two weeks previously, he broke 100 for the first time.

  • Tournament of Champions--coming...

    The excitement is building. The Tournament of Champions is five weeks away and the buzz is building in Brunswick County. This is the sixth year of the TOC, and I’m proud to say that the idea for a countywide tournament came right from our champions in 2003.

  • Carolinas is the place to be for...

    We’ve been toying around with feelings of fall for about a month now, but as of today, there is no doubt fall is here.

    You’ve heard me say it many times, but there is no place like the Carolinas in October. And besides the light north winds, comfortable temperatures and low humidity, fishing is about to be incredible.

  • Caddie's journal: The...

    From Aug. 30 to Sept. 7, I traveled with Dalton Gore as his chaperone and caddie to Pebble Beach, Calif., for the Walmart First Tee Open at Pebble Beach.

    This was Dalton’s second trip to the event, and I wondered whether it would match the excitement and success of last year’s. This is a continuation of the diary. The first part was in the Sept. 24 edition.
