Our fleet was very busy the last few days getting anglers out to the fishing grounds. Inshore charters had a great time reeling in over slot Red Drum - they put up quite a fight on small tackle! They got on some Speckled Trout and BIG Bluefish as well. Inshore charters run 1/2 day trips and are a great way to introduce your friends or family to fishing. It was a beautiful day to fish the Gulf Stream. Anglers got on some Dolphin (bailers and gaffers), Blackfin Tuna, and a few Wahoo. Bottom fish was a mixed bag with Triggerfish and Vermillion Snapper. One Blue Marlin was released. More Marlin was seen but did not bite the hook. There are always exciting things to witness offshore. June has come and gone - don't let July do the same without a fishing adventure! Give us a call at 800-676-4939 and we'll hook you up!

Heavy rain squalls and thunderstorms kept offshore charters at the dock again today. As all boats were booked this was a real bummer. Inshore charters filled up fast with no one fishing offshore. They braved the weather, returning soaked to the bone with good fish stories to tell. They got on some Citation Red Drum, Cobia, Spanish Mackerel, and Bluefish. Rainy days can be fun when you pick the right activities.

The one thing you can say about most anglers is that inclement weather doesn't hinder their effort to get on the fish. Inshore charters had fair catches of Speckled Trout. It was a chilly, rainy day offshore and fishing was on the slow side. They returned with fair catches of Dolphin and Blackfin Tuna. The Wahoo bite was scattered. A few King Mackerel made it to the fish box. One Blue Marlin, one White Marlin, and one Sailfish were released by our fleet. What better way to spend a day with friends and family - call us at 800-676-4939 to book a charter of your choice!
