We had quite a storm in the early morning hours and overcast skies kept most inshore boats in this morning. One boat went out and caught some Puppy Drum and released some big Drum. Over a handful of boats ventured offshore. Dolphin fishing continues to be the highlight with gaffers being caught. The Blackfin Tuna bite was good as well. One Blue Marlin and one White Marlin were released. This week will bring some of the best weather yet this season - don't miss out on the fishing action!

The rain held off today allowing for anglers to fish offshore and inshore. This morning produced a good bite from Spanish Mackerel and a few Sea Mullet for inshore anglers. This afternoon a few Puppy Drum were caught - one was tagged and the angler will send the tag off to find out where it was originally tagged and from where it traveled. Very exciting!! Only a few offshore boats remained at the dock today. Two Blue Marlin were released and quite a few were seen. Dolphin fishing is consistently good with gaffers being caught. The Blackfin Tuna bite was good and a few Wahoo made it into the fish box. Bottom fish included Tilefish and Grouper. Check out HVOO.org for the latest results of the tournament.
