    As we enter the second week of April, it seems as if weather patterns have yet to decide to be late winter or spring. One week we’ll experience rain with mild temperatures, then the following week we set a record-low temperature. For some, these fluctuations in weather result in fewer days to wear shorts and T-shirts. However, fishermen of Brunswick County receive an impact that is far worse than a change in wardrobe.

  • Baseball seasons special for...

    Baseball season is upon us and one man in Brunswick County is doubly excited.

    Jerry Linnell lives across the pond from me at Brick Landing. He and wife Jane live on the fourth hole; Gene and I are on the third.

    Linnell is an avid golfer who didn’t have much time to play during his 32-year career in the U.S. Senate as an official reporter of debates for inclusion in the official Congressional Record. For the last 16 years before retiring, he was the chief reporter.

    The weather could not have been any more perfect than the final days of last week. The winds were light in the morning with the no-see-ums chewing the flesh off my bones. By midmorning a warm breeze kept the no-see-ums at bay and allowed me to come out of my hoodie. It looks as if our last cool blast will have passed us by the time you read this column and we will be in a true springtime pattern. It is looking like a typical spring break for our students with warm weather and a slight chance of showers each day. It is definitely time to get after the fish.
