Early morning thunderstorms produced quite a bit of lightning which kept all but one offshore charter at the dock. Inshore charters were delayed until around 8:00 a.m. but then it cleared off with a little sunshine and they went after Speckled Trout and Bluefish. Afternoon charters experienced heavy rain and storms - but most stayed out for some good fishing. Offshore, fishing was scrappy again, however, they got on a few Dolphin and Wahoo along with Tilefish and Grouper. They returned somewhat soggy but happy that they got to go. August is already getting away from us - don't miss out - book your charter by calling 800-676-4939.

We experienced a lot of thunderstorms late last night and into the early morning hours, however, that did not deter the hardier anglers from fishing. Inshore charters got on Speckled Trout and Bluefish again today and they returned with some nice catches. Offshore, the Dolphin bite picked up and the few boats that fished brought in some limits. Some Grouper and Triggerfish were caught as well. The afternoon ended up very humid and overcast with a chance of more rain tonight - we'll see what happens tomorrow. Keep in touch!
