  • South Brunswick golfers fifth in...

    The South Brunswick High School boys’ golf team finished fifth out of 10 teams in the Class 2-A East Region golf tournament last week at Bear Trail Country Club in Jacksonville.

    South shot a 339, missing by five strokes a top-three finish that would have qualified the Cougars for their eighth straight state tournament.

    South Lenoir was first at 308, Clinton second at 328 and Pasquotank third at 334. West Bladen was fourth at 338 and South next at 339.

  • Red-=hot dolphin fishing begins...

    Thank goodness we can count on something. As they are supposed to, the dolphin, aka Mahi-mahi, have shown up in huge numbers off our coast. Each year they migrate northward in the Gulf Stream, out of the Bahamas, along the southeastern coast and toward the mid-Atlantic. It is believed there are two groups: one group comes from the Gulf of Mexico and the Keys area and the other comes from the Bahamas. These two groups collide off the Carolina coast and make for one of the best dolphin fisheries in the world. This anomaly occurs annually from mid-May through June.

  • May has been great for catching...

    Local water temperatures are now holding in the upper 60s, and that has really kicked the fishing season into high gear. So far the biggest news has been the consistent action on large chopper bluefish. This is the best May I can remember for folks hauling in the big blues. In addition, almost any other fish you want to target is out there and active.

  • Tournament of Champions to be...

    On Sept. 12, 2002, the very first Golf Gab ran in this newspaper. Since then, I have had a whole lot of fun writing about golf-related topics. I’ve met professional golfers (even Arnold Palmer once), superintendents, golf course architects, new golfers, single-digit players and ordinary people who triumph over diversity to play the game of golf.

    On trips, I’ve taken my notebook and camera with me and written about golf in Arizona and Bermuda and Texas and Georgia. If I ever get to Scotland (my dream of all dreams), I will report from there.
