Whether it’s fishing for trout in the skinny backwaters or calling in a drake mallard from your duck blind, the week of Christmas is the perfect time to teach and perform these activities with your family members.

  • Baby, it’s cold outside

     Many of us who live in Brunswick County are from the north. We’re from New Jersey, New York, Wisconsin, Ohio, New England, even Minnesota.

    Years ago, Gene and I came down on a family vacation and we fell in love with the beaches, the golf, the fishing, restaurants —  and the weather.

    Historically, the average temperature in this area in January is a high of 55 and a low of 34. Chicago, on the other hand, has an average daily temperature of 31 (January) and New York has an average daily temperature of 39 for the same month.
