GREY TROUT ARE BITING IN THE TURN BASIN IN MOREHEAD CITY, NC
Took our boat out today and caught our limit of grey trout which is one each. Brought them home, cleaned them, fried them for lunch and thanked our Good Lord for living in such a wonderful area. We fished in the Turn Basin east of the Port Authority in Morehead City when the tide turned and was running out to sea. It took us all of 30 minutes to catch the two trout.
In today’s economy it is a priviledge to have the ability to go such a short distance away and throw your lines in the water and reap such delicious rewards from the salt water so close to our reach. In Carteret County there are numerous public fishing areas and public marinas to launch your boats and take advantage of and enjoy a relaxing few hours of fishing. Sometimes the fish are biting and plentiful. Somes days, of course, they are not. That’s why it is called ‘fishing’ and not ‘catching’. But the reward of a little time on the water is well worth it. Come and see for yourself! Be sure to check out the “Hotlinks” menu on our website at www.GenaGilbertRealEstate.com for additional information or send us an email at Gena@GenaGilbertRealEstate.com.
