     It has been an extremely busy season for me this year. I can’t express enough gratitude for those who have chosen to go fishing with me, read my articles and keep up with me on Facebook. The Ocean Isle Fishing Center has also been a great partner in attracting a great customer base, great office space and a well-maintained dock to attract those customers.
