It was a breezy day today so the big boats stayed tied up. Inshore boats took advantage of the wind and went after the Red Drum. They tend to be active on breezy days. The Drum showed up and so did the Speckled Trout along with a few Bluefish.

Only a few of the big boats ventured out to the blue water today. They did make their anglers happy. They had good catches of gaffer-size Dolphin along with some nice Wahoo and a couple of Blackfin Tuna. Inshore boats had a good day filling coolers with keeper-size Red Drum and a few Speckled Trout. Tomorrow is calling for wind so it looks like the big boats will stay tied up but the Inshore boats will be out after the Red Drum.

The entire fleet headed to the fishing grounds this morning in hopes of showing their parties a good time. They returned with some good catches of gaffer Dolphin, Wahoo, and some bottom fish; Tilefish, Snowy Grouper, and Rose Fish. It all sounds like some good eating to me.
Inshore boats showed their parties a good time today. They had excellent catches of Red Drum and Speckled Trout. One boat had a clamming trip and they also did well.
