2/25/06 Afternoon Trip with Matt Lee and his buddy aboard... intended for a 4hr trip but ole' Mother Nature said NO WAY! 15min. or less and we got onto a good school of reds and the spanking commenced. We fished it about an hour or so and the wind picked up to 15 to 20 out of the SW and the swell jumped up to 3 to 4fters in the shoals making it dangerous... We left having caught about 15 reds with the largest at 32in. and about 12lbs. Good Job Matt!- Capt. Jeff Cronk- FISH'N4LIFE- 910-326-7512- jcronk@ec.rr.com Posted by Picasa

2/25/06 Dillan and Mike onboard today for a 4hr trip... These guys had perfect conditions with zero swell and clear water... first five minutes we found a school of over 1000 reds. We nailed them for several hours until the boats got thick on us... then, we moved on and found another school a mile or so away and wore them out for over an hour before we were covered with boats again. In all we fished a little over three hours to land about 50 reds with the largest at 31+in. and 11+lbs! Great Job Guys.. Capt. Jeff Cronk- FISH'N4LIFE- 910-326-7512 or 336-558-5697. Posted by Picasa

2/20/06 FISH'N4LIFE AND TAYLOR'MADE CHARTERS..... SON! What a BITE! Myself and good buddy, Capt. Mike Taylor decided to ignore the cold drizzle and hopped in the boat about 11:00am to search for those winter reds we've been ignoring as we've been hitting the trout good all winter. 5min.s down the beach and we located a massive school of 24 to 30in. fish. The swell was bad so we beached the boat and proceeded to wear the arses out! We fished for about 2 1/2hrs and managed around 40 big reds! We caught them on soft plastics, topwater baits, spinner baits... These fish were fighting over the topwater baits... and in late February... 45 degree weather... drizzle... who'd of thought! It was constant double hookups as we had the school almost at our feet. Fish moved and we hopped in the boat relocated them and started catching them from the boat... left them biting to take my wife to the doctor... Capt. Mike Taylor and Myself will be running trips for these reds from both the surf and boat through Feb and March... availability limited to pretty days... flexible schedule a must... Check out some pics below. Capt. Jeff Cronk 910-326-7512/ 336-558-5697 jcronk@ec.rr.com and Capt. Mike Taylor 252-725-2623.  Posted by Picasa
