    It is safe to say the spring fishing has officially set in. The mahi mahi are biting in the Gulf Stream, the king mackerel are feeding depths of 80 100 feet and the Spanish mackerel have shown up in good numbers along the beach.

    In addition to all the great fishing, the weather finally decided to cooperate this weekend as well. Therefore, just about every angler in Brunswick County tried his or her luck on the action — including myself.

     The backwater action has been hit or miss for most of us lately in our immediate area. That is sure to change as the weather pattern has become more stable. Most of the action in the backwater has been coming from flounder and croaker. Most of those fish are too small to keep for the dinner table.

     As the mother of four daughters and now the grandmother of 10 (seven boys and three girls), I love Mother’s Day.

    My husband always remembers the date and makes me feel truly special for being his wife and the mother of his children

    But you don’t have to physically be a mom to be honored as one. Plenty of aunts and grandmothers, sisters and neighbors have been surrogate moms by listening, counseling and just being there for a kid who needs an adult friend.

    LELAND — West Brunswick finished second in the Mideastern 3A/4A Conference championship golf tournament April 28 at Magnolia Greens.

    West shot a 325 and finished 10 strokes behind Laney.

    The Trojans’ top golfer was junior Landon Patterson, who shot a 4-over-par 76 on the 6,200-yard course. He finished third overall.

    Sophomore Tucker Vaughan shot an 80, freshman Spencer Faircloth an 84, senior Drew Boyer an 87 and senior Cole Snyder an 85.

     Most people think the golf course superintendent is a guy who hangs out at the course and cuts grass. Maybe he rakes a few traps and fertilizes once in a while. It’s an easy, cushy job that any dude could do.

    Wrong. Wrong. Wrong.

    The golf course superintendent is a highly trained, educated professional who usually has a college degree in agriculture or turf management. Many superintendents have advanced degrees.

    It seems every year I get a text message or an email from a fishing buddy stating he “left them biting,” meaning the fishing was so good the crew was tired of catching what was biting and moved elsewhere to catch something else. It just so happens I got a text message from Cody Tucker, who fished the Gulf Stream last weekend, saying “we left them biting.”
