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!
