Captain
Froggy Thornton

Member since June 2017 Manteo, United States
Background
Born and raised right here in coastal North Carolina. I have fished ever since I was old enough to walk. Fishing and hunting are my passion, and I am blessed to be able to do it as a living. I am a grandfather of 9 and love kids. There is nothing like seeing the smile on a kid's face when they catch a fish.
Techniques
My methods of fishing vary according to the target species and time of year. For example, trolling works well for Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, Tuna, Dolphin, Striped Bass, and is a easy method for inexperienced fisherman. Sight casting works great on Cobia and Redfish. Casting jigs works for Speckled Trout, Flounder, and Redfish. Bottom fishing and trolling for Blues and Spanish Mackerels are often great trips for kids because they bring fast and furious action.
