A sunny but windy morning turned into a cloudy and remained windy afternoon. All of the big boats stayed tied to the dock. A few of the inshore boats went fishing and catching. It was an excellent Red Drum day. Red Drum likes to show up on the windy days and our inshore boats like to be there to greet them. Tomorrow looks like a wait-and-see situation. Forecasts are varying and so far small craft advisories will be in effect until tomorrow evening.
If you're planning a trip to the island and want to go fishing either offshore or inshore plan ahead and book early. Boats are filling up fast and if you're thinking about it, so are a lot of other people. You don't want to be left at the dock wishing you were fishing.
