There is a whole lot of activities coming up in Brunswick County, NC, and more than one of them involves fishing. That’s not a surprise to those of us who live here. With the Atlantic Ocean as one of our boundaries and the number of rivers, streams, lakes and salt marsh locations – not to mention the Intracoastal Waterway – there are so many opportunities to fish here. Even the events that do not include fishing – include water. Saturday offers the Southport NatureFest where the whole family can enjoy fun events designed to inform and educate as well.
Another Saturday event will be the US Coast Guard Safety Expo on Oak Island, NC, featuring Coastie, the Safe Boat, and Sammy, The Sea Otter.
On Saturday, also, Boiling Spring Lakes, NC, offers its annual fishing event for kids – the Small Fry Fishing Tournament. What a great way for kids to learn how to fish – with the help of officers from the police department.
