  • Get ready to catch speckled trout

    As spring arrives, Brunswick County anglers will begin their annual pursuit of the beautiful and elusive speckled trout. Right now most folks on the water are chasing redfish in the shallows, as redfish have been the most consistent bite during this unusually harsh winter. That will change soon, however, as trout anglers begin to look for specks to help them shake off the winter doldrums.

    Last weekend, I traveled to the Seabrook Island Club for the spring meeting of the Carolina Golf Reporters Association. For the first time, the meeting took place jointly with the South Carolina Golf Course Ratings Panel, and it was a blast.

    There were awards, meetings and social events during the weekend. Each day we played the courses at Seabrook.

    On Saturday, I met Brian Thelan, the head golf professional at Seabrook and heard the amazing story of how this beautiful private club came to be.

    LITTLE RIVER, S.C.—The West Brunswick varsity baseball squad turned a 16-2 loss Friday night St. James into a learning experience Saturday morning at the Butler Memorial Tournament on Saturday morning.

    Gause pitched four innings of the five-inning game. He threw 55 pitches, allowing one hit and striking out nine. It was first start of the season.
