Bass Fishing

Creme Speed Scremers

Dusty Anders of Deville was excited when he called an outdoor writer in early February.

Spring king mackerel run thrills N.C. fishermen

One of the high points of spring fishing is the annual run of king mackerel along North Carolina’s southern beaches. Kings migrate up the beach and take up residence for anywhere from a few days to a few weeks between the ends of fishing piers and nearshore artificial reefs. During exceptionally warm springs, it may begin in late April, but it has usually fired off by mid-May.
