  • King mackerel bite strong

    The king mackerel bite went off this past week, starting on Thursday. It is absolutely crazy how the fishing can be so subpar and then all of a sudden they bite as if they hadn’t eaten in months. In fact, maybe that is what is happening. We have had a lot of strong southwest winds over the past few weeks, and as such the ocean has been rough. In addition, for whatever reason, I have noticed the kings do not like to bite in these conditions.

  • Black drum can salvage a fishing...

    Summertime fishing is still good, especially in the early morning hours and after sunset. Anglers are catching flounder, pompano, speckled trout, bluefish and black drum.
    Black drum are a chunky, unappreciated species that can save a fishing trip. They are found most often around structures such as bridges, docks, jetties and piers. They rarely venture over sandy stretches of beaches and inlets, and because the overwhelming majority of their diet is made up of shellfish, they congregate around barnacle-encrusted pilings and over oyster beds.

  • Chucky Brown tells campers to...

    LELAND—Hanging on a wall above an exit at the North Brunswick High School gym is the Houston Rockets’ Chucky Brown shooting a jump over Danny Ferry. When Brown returned to his high school alma mater Friday for the Clarence Brown North Brunswick  Basketball Camp—named in honor of his dad—one of the campers asked Brown whether he made the shot. Brown pointed toward the poster.

    “I made the shot,” he said.

    Some of the campers reacted, as if the answer had settled a bet.
