Inshore anglers had a great morning catching and releasing Red Drum and fighting to keep their catch from the Sharks. This afternoon they returned with good catches of Spanish Mackerel and Speckled Trout. Inshore trips are great for family outings or just kicking around with your friends! It was another scrappy day of fishing offshore. The Dolphin bite was slower for some and good for others. Some Blackfin Tuna and Yellowfin Tuna were caught as well as a couple of Wahoo. Bottom fishing was good with Triggerfish and Vermillion Snapper being caught. We currently need 4-5 people for a Make up charter for Monday. Make up charters go offshore for a full day of fishing.

Inshore anglers had a busy day with spanish Mackerel and Bluefish. A few Gray Trout and Red Drum were thrown into the mix this morning. Tuna Duck released one White Marlin offshore. Dolphin fishing slowed way down today and only a few made it into the fish box. A few Yellowfin Tuna were caught as well. Not all days produce a good bite - but just being out on the water is better than nothing at all!

Another blow day. No one fished offshore due to big seas and gusty southwest winds. The wind has finally died down and the boats are getting ready to fish tomorrow. A few inshore boats fished this afternoon. They enjoyed good Drum fishing and they also gathered limits of clams. Let's hope that the weather cooperates and anglers can get out to fish!
