This year, fishing seems to be ahead of schedule. After catching the first sailfish of the season in February, Brody and I got to thinking that the inshore top water bite might be early as well. Typically, we begin targeting trout and redfish with top water lures in late March and early April....
Here’s Philip Simmons High School baseball coach Josh Kubisz’ scouting report on senior Ty Peterson, an emerging pitcher who also covers a lot of ground at shortstop.   “He’s a quiet guy who puts in the work,” said Kubisz, whose team went 12-10 last spring, winning the Region 6-AA...
The Bishop England High School girls’ basketball team held the top sophomore in the country to nearly half of her usual point production. And, the Bishops played inspired basketball, using a never-quit attitude and a stingy defense after falling behind by double digits early in the game.  ...
Philip Simmons High School girls’ basketball coach Dustin Williams sounded a little down, but was definitely not out, after his team was eliminated from the Class AA state playoffs.   The Iron Horses reached the Elite 8, but were once again eliminated by Silver Bluff, 56-39, in a showdown...
Amberjacks are an underrated species. They are abundant in our nearshore waters. They grow large. They fight hard. They are reasonably easy to catch. Around here, most people don’t eat them. However, in Florida, you will often find them on restaurant menus. Whether you eat them or not, if you are...
Philip Simmons and Bishop England are well represented on the South Carolina Basketball Coaches Association’s all-state team.   Philip Simmons landed two players on the Class AA team: Miles Haight and Kennedy Rivers. Bishop England’s selections include Ally Dominiak and Ella Schar. They made...
In the movie “Field of Dreams,” Kevin Costner’s character famously heard a distinct message whispered among the cornstalks.    “If you build it, they will come.”    While the reference applied to baseball, the same could be said for lacrosse — especially on Daniel Island, where the...
Miles Haight reached the 1,000-point career milestone in Feb. 19’s Class AAA boys’ playoff game against Latta. But the Philip Simmons High School sharpshooter will trade every basket he’s swished, every honor he’s earned and every trophy he’s collected for one thing: a state championship.   “...
Over the past few days, Brody and I have been organizing the storage lockers in our boats. I guess you could call it spring cleaning. No matter how many times we have done this together, Brody and I are always amazed at what we find. Three bottles of sunscreen (all of which are out of date). Two...
Perhaps it was a pundit. Or maybe it was an ink-stained wretch or grizzled coach.   But whoever came up with the phrase, “the game wasn’t as close as the score indicated” would have been 100% correct in their assessment of Bishop England girls’ victory over Strom Thurmond High, in a girls’...
