What a beautiful day for fishing! The story of the day for inshore anglers was Red Drum - keepers and over slot size. Cobia was caught this morning. It was a great day to be offshore and almost every boat fished. Dolphin fishing continues to be great with both bailers and gaffers being pulled in. The Blackfin Tuna bite was good and a few Wahoo were caught as well. A Whale Shark was seen, which is very unusual for this area. It was 20 - 30 ft. long and surprised captains and anglers alike.

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.
