8-21 all day trip - Troy Crane - 08/21/14

Headed offshore for some deep water bottom fishing/ trolling today. Beautiful weather and calm ocean. We ended up with a mixed bag, a Black fin tuna, released a Sail fish, a limit of tile fish and a few nice sea bass along with a dozen dolphin. Fall fishing should be great the way things are shaping up.

Near shore report before and after hurricane Arthur - Troy Crane - 07/12/14

Good half day fishing for Blues and Spanish along the beaches with schools of Red Drum showing up most days. All day trips have been very productive while live bait fishing and jigging artificial lures around wrecks and other structures for big Amberjack and the occasional Dolphin while trolling. A few cobia around but we look for that to pick up as we go into August. Lets go fishing !

Nice morning of fishing - Troy Crane - 06/05/14

Young Luke was a busy guy on this trip ! He spent the entire trip cranking in all of the fish and taking them off the hook as well. He's a great angler and was a lot of fun to fish with. Take a kid fishing, it makes for great memories.

The season is here, time to book your trip !

A little bit of fishing. - Troy Crane - 04/14/14

The weather has been nice the past couple of days and we were fortunate to run a couple of half day trips. The water temps were warm along the beach, 64 degrees and that brought with it lots of life. Plenty of Sharks and some nice Trophy size Red Drum.

Looks like another run of bad weather is coming but hopefully it will be short lived. Summer is around the corner and fishing is getting off to a good start, don't wait to book you trip.

Getting ready - Troy Crane - 03/07/14

Allan and I beat the polar vortex last Sunday and made it back from the frozen great white north they call Pennsylvania. The show at Cabelas was good and we enjoyed seeing some old friends and meeting some new ones. Our weather is forecast to level off the first of the week with some milder temps on the way. We'll be busy finishing up some details on the boat and getting ready for the spring and summer fishing season. We have started booking for the upcoming season, check out our booking calendar and get your date reserved. We look forward to seeing our old and new customers this season.

See every one soon, Troy

Happy New Year - Troy Crane - 01/02/14

Between the weather and some traveling over the holidays with the family we haven't been fishing. We are scheduled to fish this weekend and i'll post a report the first of the week. Striper fishing has been slow with just a few fish showing up this past week. It seems like everything is way behind schedule this winter but hopefully fishing will pick up with some of the more seasonal weather that's starting to arrive.

Good luck, Troy
