Inshore anglers had a great time after locating a large school of Red Drum and catching a limit of Puppy Drum and releasing just as many large Drum. A few Speckled Trout were caught.

Near shore charters went out on the ocean side where the Bluefish were snapping. Spanish Mackerel fishing was good. The water near shore was nice blue water and provided anglers with a clear shot of the fish they were catching.

SW winds calmed down a bit throughout the day and provided offshore anglers with much calmer seas this afternoon.The Blackfin Tuna bite was good today. Dolphin was scattered and a few Wahoo were reported. Weather conditions should improve over the course of the weekend - so plan accordingly and bring your family and/or friends on a fun fishing adventure! Call 800-676-4939 for more information.
