Thanks to all of you who have supported FISH'N4LIFE CHARTERS in the past and again in 2007. As I've had many requests for Visors I've just received my order of both navy blue and white sun visors. Those of you interested in purchasing a new visor please drop me an email at JCRONK@EC.RR.COM
. The cost of the visors are $7.50 which includes shipping. This price is cheaper than my actual cost. Payment can be made by personal check, business check, or money order and sent to Capt. Jeff Cronk, 113 Ryan Glenn Drive, Swansboro, NC 28584. I only make one order each year so, get one while they last. Again, I appreciate everyone's support. Capt.

Well, for those of you who love Berkley's line of Gulp Baits.... they've been outdone! No, not by another bait company. When you thought you had the best artificial bait ever made, Berkley has intensified the product making it longer lasting, much softer and flexible, and absolutely irresistable to fish! I've said it before and I truly am amazed by Berkley's Gulp baits. Besides being more Potent, the new Gulp Alive also offers what us Fishermen have been asking for.... they put it in a small tub like conainer that is FILLED with Berkley's Gulp Alive juice! If you could see how big my grin was when I got my first order and realized I could (shhhhh!) drop my gulp baits back into the special sauce when I got done with them... or put my other soft baits into it. PS>..... I also bought a Syringe from the local pharmacy and filled it with gulp juice and injected it into other baits! PS>..... Try shooting some of this into your favorite offshore baits... The Gulp Alive Juice is good into temperatures of up to 100 degrees F. and won't spoil. When you get a chance, run by Dudley's or your local Berkley dealer and ask to check out the product! You'll definately want to add a tub to your boat!

I left the dock around 10:00am with Walt B. and friends aboard for a 4hr trip. They were up for whatever quality fish would bite. The wind was up quite a bit and we started out playing with some sheepshead. We landed one and missed several others over a span of 20min. The bite was rather slow so we moved on with the incoming tide to find some other action. We worked some shallow water before heading toward the inlet and found a few puppydrum and a flounder along some shelly flats. The wind dropped out and we had an hour or so left so we shot out the inlet and pulled up on some good bottom near the beach and worked a few Summer Flounder with Jigs. We landed 6 up to 3lbs before heading back to the dock. There was just a 1 to 2hr window between wind shifts today in which the ocean was calm enough to enjoy it. We just lucked out and got that window. Great job Guys! Capt. Jeff Cronk

Sat. May 19th. Today I had a good ole' Boy onboard. Marty Stevenson and I go way back and had some good times growing up here in Swansboro. I had one of those flashbacks about how fast time is passing by.... But, at almost 38 I can't say I'd like to go back and change anything... I love what I do.... FISH! Well, enough mushy stuff... Today the bite was on in the 5 to 10 mile range for the Kings. They were all keeper snakes from 4 to 10lbs. There were some Bonito and Hatteras Bluefish mixed in too. We caught a bunch of fish trolling deepdiving lures in the 3 to 5in. lengths with hot pink and the green holographic being the best. After messing around and keeping a few fish we shot back into the backwaters of Swansboro and worked some shallow water for about an hour and managed 4 hookups on redfish ranging from 20 to 25in. Our best luck on the redfish was using the New Berkley Gulp ALIVE soft baits tipped on spinner baits. Look for the new baits in Dudley's Marina soon.

Thursday and Friday I had a native to the area onboard. John and I set out thursday right after the extreme winds and weather settled down to try and relocate some redfish. We found reds in almost every area we tryed but the sizes were small. The water clarity inside was a little chalky. The reds we found would strike the topwater baits but not committ. So we tryed spinner baits and that did the trick. On friday we were back out there scouting out some different areas. The first couple places didn't produce but we found some areas with better water clarity and the reds were there. We cornered a pod of reds into a back bay in some flooded marsh and had multiple strikes and hookups off it. We managed to pull out and release two that would be a definite money maker in a redfish tourny. Good job guys!
