    Late November is the time many casual anglers pack up their fishing rods for spring, while a different breed of fishermen starts to get serious.

    Capt. Rennie Clark has been fishing the coastal waters of North Carolina for more than 25 years.

I recently asked him for some tips and advice regarding speckled trout fishing in the winter.

    LOUISBURG—Stephanie Beach, the Brunswick Community College volleyball coach, stood on the volleyball court at Louisburg Community College and quickly recited an amazing list of accomplishments.
