It's been an active few days of weather. The waves have slackened off enough this morning for a few of the big boats to trek out to the blue water. They did manage to deck a lot of Blackfin Tuna. They also had scattered Dolphin and a few Wahoo. It was a beautiful day for the Inshore boats to get on the Bluefish and Red Drum this morning. They had Speckled Trout and Bluefish in the afternoon.

In the next few days, we'll have the remnants of Ian churning up the water once again as he comes off of the coast just above Hatteras. They're calling for gale winds and coastal flooding so the boats will be tied to the docks until later this week.
