Heavy rain this morning did not stop charters from heading out. Inshore anglers experienced an excellent Speckled Trout bite along with some Bluefish. It certainly put smiles on the youngster's faces - it's a great way to spend time with friends and family and it doesn't take up an entire day. Offshore, the fishing was somewhat scrappy again today. They managed to get on some Dolphin and Wahoo. Bottom fishing included Triggerfish and Vermillion Snapper. One sailfish was released. August is a great month to fish - don't let it slip by - book your charter soon!
