It's a bit overcast and cloudy on the island today but that didn't stop anglers from wanting to test their skills on the water. Inshore catches included Bluefish and Spanish Mackerel this morning and again this afternoon. Red Drum seemed to take a break - maybe they stayed up all night with the full moon. Near shore catches consisted of good Bluefish and a few Spanish Mackerel. One boat fished near shore this afternoon and released quite a few over the slot Red Drum just outside the inlet.

Anglers who fished offshore enjoyed cooler temps, a nice breeze, and fairly good fishing. Dolphin were found later in the day and provided some fairly decent catches. A few Wahoo were caught as well. A White Marlin and a Sailfish were released by one boat.

Red Drum fishing continues to get inshore anglers excited with over the slot releases. It is quite a fight on a small rod! Gray Trout and Spot catches were good. Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish were biting near shore this morning and one group of young boys had a blast with their first fishing experience.

A very strong current offshore today made for some rough conditions. Dolphin fishing was scattered (not as good as yesterday). Blackfin Tuna and Wahoo bites were scattered. Bottom fishing continues to be good with a Tripletail being added to the list. Three Sailfish were released.

Dolphin fishing picked up offshore today with some boats returning with limits. The Wahoo bite was scattered. Bottom fishing was good with limits of Gray Tilefish. One boat fished overnight and returned with five Billfish releases - one Blue Marlin, two Swordfish, and two Sailfish!

The nice SW wind continued to blow today, making lots of current in the Gulfstream. Offshore boats filled their boxes with nice catches of Dolphin, both bailers and gaffers and some Wahoo. The inshore boats had a slow day on the Sound. They reported a couple of Red Drum releases.

Winds from the SW made for a nice breeze and cooler conditions than were forecast. Inshore fishing produced catches of Spanish Mackerel, Bluefish, and Speckled Trout this morning. Fishing was slow this afternoon with one Stingray being caught. Our offshore fleet had a better day than yesterday with good Dolphin fishing. The Wahoo bite was good and seems to be getting better. Bottom fishing was good with Tilefish and Grouper. Two Sailfish were released. There is nothing to compare with returning from the Gulf Stream tired and hungry with fresh fish to cook that evening. Sounds like paradise!

Hot August days are a great time to get out onto the water and enjoy quality time with family and friends! Inshore anglers experienced scattered Red Drum catches, along with good catches of Speckled Trout this morning. Afternoon brought good catches of Bluefish. Clamming was enjoyed by several groups of anglers. Fishing was fairly slow offshore today. The Wahoo bite was spotty - some boats managed to catch quite a few and others didn't fair too well. A few Dolphin and King Mackerel made it into the fish box.
