SW winds blew today making for some rough fishing conditions. A handful of offshore boats attempted to fish but big seas forced them to return early. In spite of the weather, two Sailfish were released. Dolphin fishing was scrappy with some bailers and a couple of gaffers brought in. One Wahoo was caught and several Amberjack helped to fill the box. Inshore anglers had fun catching Speckled Trout (one citation size), Bluefish, Puppy Drum, and Spanish Mackerel. The wind is supposed to fall out overnight and provide for better conditions tomorrow.
