It's been another day of very windy conditions. The big boats are still tied up while the inshore boats are getting on the fish. Wind makes the Red Drum bite. They bit well today. It was another excellent day of Red Drum fishing. Looking toward the end of this week for the big boats to be finally untied.

The day started out windy and ended up with a Tropical Storm Watch. Needless to say, the big boats stayed tied to the dock. Of course, the inshore boats had an incredible Red Drum kind of day. They caught keepers and released some big ones. They also had some nice Speckled Trout.
The weather is looking to get a little worse as the next few days come but there will be good days ahead.
