TOPSAIL BEACH, NC (WECT) - Town leaders say the dredging of the New Topsail Inlet should start soon, and for one business that depends on being able to get out to sea, that's good news.
Buddy Mizelle's job depends on being able to get the Queen Jean deep sea fishing tour boat out to the ocean.
"If you can't get out you just cant go," said Mizelle. Friday afternoon, when he tried taking a much smaller boat through the inlet, an alarm sounded signaling the water was too shallow. Birds were even landing and walking in the area the boats were supposed to be able to go.
