  • Great time to try to catch mahi...

    Every spring an event occurs that puts offshore anglers of our area into ultimate pandemonium. The chaos begins with just one or two boats that head to the Gulf Stream in search of a tug on the line. Typically, these boats return to the dock with decent success, which also sparks interest of more anglers to venture offshore. Then, before you know it, dozens of boats are returning to the dock with incredible tales all revolving around one thing: the late spring mahi mahi run.

  • How to run a charity golf event

    Brunswick County is a beehive of charity golf events. During much of the year, two or three charity golf events take place each week at courses from Leland to Calabash.

    Some raise funds for national charities like the Wounded Warrior Project, the American Cancer Society and the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Other charity events are for a local need. Someone’s house burns down; a family experiences a life-changing accident or devastating illness. Sometimes funds are raised for the hungry and the homeless.

  • Gulf Stream action heating up

    The first week of May can be a magical time for fishermen of Brunswick County. As history tells it, May is typically the transition month for almost all targeted species of game fish along the southeastern section of North Carolina. Mahi mahi have begun their annual late spring run up the edge of the coast, the king mackerel have started feeding in the 30-mile range and, thankfully, a few Spanish mackerel have been found along the beachfront. 

  • Flounder are biting in many areas

    The average water temperature in our area is holding in the lower 70s and that has triggered a good flounder bite. Shallow areas like Tubbs Inlet and Dunn Sound, S.C., and Hogg Inlet S.C., have all produced numbers of small flounder the last few weeks. As the water temperature has continued rise and is holding around 70 degrees even in our surf zones, deeper areas have started to show signs of life. Places like the Little River (S.C.) jetties, Shallotte Inlet and Lockwood Folly have all seen more flounder this week with solid keepers in the mix.
