Take a horse-carriage tour through Wilmington and youll learn that no Civil War battles took place in the city; the battle for this town happened on the ocean. For Capt. Dennis Barbour of Island Tackle & Hardware, the war is still there, but instead of North vs. South, its man vs. flounder.
Barbour has a few tips that can help anglers land more flounder in these waters, which are littered with civil war wrecks, the remnants of mostly Yankee ships that sunk while blockading or bombarding Fort Fisher. These remnants are what the flounder come for, and its what keeps Barbour and other anglers coming back too. A few tips from Barbour can help other anglers land their share of these flatfish.
