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

Late summer fishing - Troy Crane - 09/14/13

September and October have always been a great time to fish on the obx and this year is no exception. We've had a great week of fishing on our half, three quarter and all day trips. Inshore, there has been a good run of Blues and Spanish along with some Cobia and False Albecore.The nearshore wrecks are holding Trigger fish and other bottom fish. Off the beach, the big Amberjack have shown up on the area wrecks as well as some nice Dolphin, an occasional Wahoo and Sail fish while trolling and we had some nice size Tile fish while deep drop fishing the other day. The White Marlin bite offshore is incredible once again this year with record catches being made. Come on down and do some fishing, the weather is great and the fishing is even better.

8-23 report This weeks fishing. - Troy Crane - 08/23/13

We fished 4 all day trips and a couple of half day trips this week. The all days consisted of live bait fishing for Amberjacks and trolling for dolphin which were very successful. The nearshore half days have seen a nice return of good size tailor blue fish and spanish mackerel fishing. The summer may be winding down but that's when the fishing starts to heat up here on the OBX. Get a group together and lets go fishing. Thanks for checking in, Troy

8-11 The past weeks fishing - Troy Crane - 08/11/13

The past week we did a little bit of everything, live bait fishing for Amberjacks on the wrecks and trolling for Dolphin. Wreck fishing for sea bass and trigger fish and a little chumming for sharks, which was about the best I have ever seen. Come on down, bring the kids and go fishing.

Great Spanish Mackerel fishing - Troy Crane - 08/01/13

Our morning trips have been producing some of the years best Spanish fishing right outside the inlet. The afternoon trips have been slower with a few schools of Red Drum showing up along with a scattered Cobia catch.

Lets go fishing !

A little bit of everything - Troy Crane - 06/24/13

"Our catches for the past week covered all the bases. A strong north east wind chased us out of the ocean toward the end of the week but not after having some of the best Spanish fishing of the summer and during the blow we caught plenty of trout, sea mullet, flounder and croaker to name a few, while enjoying the calm sound side waters. The weekend brought some pretty weather and we made another good run on the Spanish Saturday morning and finished off the weekend on Sunday fishing with my son, his wife and a group of friends from Greenville catching plenty of big Amberjack and a few nice dolphin to round off the catch. Summer fishing is in full swing and the July calendar is just about filled in. Book early if you can to guarantee your fishing adventure. Troy"
