The trout bite has been on fire in the creeks lately with catches reported up to 7 pounds!  When soon to be neighbor, Scott Zillioux saw the weather report for the weekend, he hopped in the car with his brother and made the trip from chilly Rochester, NY to sunny NC.  It was a family affair, they met brother-in-law, Chris, and picked up Blair who they now call their ‘good luck charm’.  The 13 hour trip was worth it as they reeled in trout after trout in the 75 degree January sun.  Way to put your new boats to work….no doubt they’ll be back soon!

We’ve had many fishing buddies grace our doorstep this winter because our area seems to have some of the best trout fishing around.  I have officially run out of trout recipes, yet Blair continues to catch dinner.  I really shouldn’t complain…we’ll be craving trout come July when we get tired of all the crab meat 🙂
