Sun. 3/25 This morning I had one of my regular clients, Folden Lee, aboard along with his 10yr old daughter. Folden has definately raised a fishing buddy for a daughter and cute as a doll too. Well, it was a little slow today as we were fishing some areas trying to put a big trout in the box while hiding from 15 to 20mph winds. But, we managed to find a few fish and even a couple of inshore slams. We hooked up with 6 trout, lost 2... and landed two flounder and two redfish. The largest trout was right at 3lbs. Great job guys and enjoyable as always. Capt. Jeff Cronk- FISH'N4LIFE CHARTERS- Swansboro, NC - 910-326-7512
Monday 3/19 Well, Capt. Mike Taylor and I both shot out on the water this afternoon looking for some big trout... I got smoked in the couple hours we fished today. Mike's 4 largest trout were 3.7lbs, 4lbs, 5.05lbs, and 5.1lbs... My largest was 2.25lbs so I won't even talk about the rest of my trout and flounder as they no longer seem to matter... all I can say is that he will be rubbing it in for a few days! Folks, both Mike and I are booking fast for Spring Trout fishing as well as Albacore, Bonito, and Redfish. If you want a chance at some big trout or some good numbers of average size trout call asap... Capt. Jeff Cronk 910-326-7512 and Capt. Mike Taylor 252-725-2623.
3/14/07 I had a friend hop onboard this afternoon for a couple of hours before sunset. We fished locally... checking out the trout bite at a few holes. We were casting small Berkley Gulp Baits. The water temps here in Swansboro are 60 degrees in the sound and 65 to 67 in the creeks. The fish are beginning to gnaw. During our 2-hr trip, We wound up landing 5 speckled trout and a 19in redfish. The largest spec was 4.05lbs for another 2007 Citation! Sweeeet. Capt. Mike Taylor fished a few days this week and is finding the same results... With catches of 10 to 20trout in 4hr to 6hr trips the Spring Trout fishing is on.... Mike had two citations this week with one just over 4lbs and one just over 5lbs. There are redfish biting inside as well as some southern flounder beginning to show. The grey trout are moving in and the bluefish should be here shortly. And, I'm sure there are some Albacore working nearshore too. Enjoy those fish Ashley! Capt.
