Our offshore fleet finally got out on this beautiful beginning to the Memorial Day weekend! Dolphin fishing was good today. Some Blackfin Tuna and bottom fish were caught. One Blue Marlin and two Sailfish were released. It sure was good to see the smiles of all the anglers who spent the day fishing the beautiful waters of the Gulf Stream. Fishing was slow this morning for inshore anglers. A Cobia was caught along with baby Speckled Trout. This afternoon anglers had a great time catching Cobia and Red Drum. We hope that everyone has a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend!

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!

Southwest winds (gusting 20-30kts.) and big seas (9-11ft.) kept offshore anglers from fishing again today. A couple if inshore boats went out and braved choppy waters and came back with in slot Red Drum and released other over the slot Drum. It's supposed to blow throughout the night with possible thunderstorms. We'll have to wait if the sea falls out enough to get out.

Another great day of fishing for our fleet. Inshore anglers experienced lots of Cobia action this morning and afternoon. If they weren't catching Cobia, they had good action from Spanish Mackerel, Grey Trout, and Spot. Billfish was the name of the game for offshore anglers! Eight Blue Marlin, two White Marlin, and two Sailfish were released by our fleet alone. Dolphin and Blackfin Tuna fishing were good again today. A big shout out to Team "DOFA" who had a great day of gaffer Dolphin fishing on Gambler. The Wahoo bite was scattered. All boats are booked tomorrow - check back to view the latest action or better yet, book your own charter and get in on the action!
