  • Zack Byrd: Young phenom on the...

    I first met Zack Byrd in 2003 when he won the Carolinas Junior Championship. I sat in his home in Calabash and chatted with the young phenom, and his parents, Cindy and Steve. He was being home-schooled at the time because his junior golf schedule was so rigorous it would not allow him to attend a regular high school with any consistency. Each week, his dad or mom drove him to junior events all over the country. 

  • How’s the fishing? Something’s...

    Having been a professional fisherman for nearly 20 years, there is simply no replacement for experience in learning and understanding an area’s fishery. And to this day, I am still humbled at how foolish the fish can make me feel. However, I do feel as if time has afforded me the opportunity to experience year after year seasonal fish behavior and, as such, sort of get an idea about what the fish are doing. 

  • Night fishing is the way to beat...

     Brunswick County fishing has picked up a bit from the summer doldrums we have been in. Oppressive heat continues to make fishing best early in the morning or after sunset, but at least anglers have been catching some fish as they begin to turn their eyes toward fall.

    The piers have seen scattered catches of Spanish mackerel, bluefish, black drum and flounder with speckled trout showing up for some morning runs. There are some pompano in the surf along with the snapper blues and a few puppy red drum.

  • The First Tee and Parks and...

    The First Tee of Brunswick County chapter has formed many wonderful partnerships with local golf courses and organizations since 2005. The same holds true outside of the golf community. This includes Brunswick County Schools, Community in Schools, Brunswick County 4-H, Oak Island Parks and Recreation and ATMC-TV.

    The chapter recently formed a partnership with another youth organization, Brunswick County Parks and Recreation. This partnership has already produced two exciting summer time opportunities to serve Brunswick County youth.
