  • Hoping for a big finish to the...

    It’s been a strange fall fishing season in Brunswick County so far. A lot of anglers have had success catching big redfish, and pier fishermen have been decking terrific numbers of king mackerel, but overall fishing has been up and down. We got a late start with the long, hot summer and were thrown a curveball with the floods, and now we are hoping for a big finish to the fall season.

    This past weekend’s Fall Brawl King Classic, hosted from the Ocean Isle Fishing Center, was the culmination of a season’s worth of pent up fishing frustration. This has not been a great year for fishing from Brunswick County, particularly for the area’s most popular game fish, the king mackerel. 

    However, this weekend the stars aligned and the kings finally did what they are supposed to do, and Mother Nature threw in her bit of kindness to make for a weekend of great fishing and great weather.
