Member since July 2016 Beaufort, United States
Background
Captain Will Jones spent many days of his childhood fishing the Harkers Island area. His favorite fishing style is inshore fishing for Red Drum and Speckled Trout, but he also enjoys fishing the ocean for Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, and everything in between. He has been guiding since Spring 2016. He says, "When I caught my first Red Drum, it was all over!"
Techniques
My favorite fishing style is inshore fishing with artificial lures for red drum and speckled trout, but I enjoy light tackle casting action in the ocean for a variety of species from Spanish mackerel to cobia and everything in between!
