George Cecil of Roanoke Island caught and released eight nice keeper-sized speckled trout on jigs Friday morning at Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head.

When not fishing for fun, Cecil works as a mate on the Sea Breeze with Capt. Ned Ashby.

Anglers on both the ocean and soundside have been reporting good speckled trout bites every since last week’s nor’easter moved out.
