Early morning thunderstorms produced quite a bit of lightning which kept all but one offshore charter at the dock. Inshore charters were delayed until around 8:00 a.m. but then it cleared off with a little sunshine and they went after Speckled Trout and Bluefish. Afternoon charters experienced heavy rain and storms - but most stayed out for some good fishing. Offshore, fishing was scrappy again, however, they got on a few Dolphin and Wahoo along with Tilefish and Grouper. They returned somewhat soggy but happy that they got to go. August is already getting away from us - don't miss out - book your charter by calling 800-676-4939.

Some Grouper and Triggerfish were caught as well. The afternoon ended up very humid and overcast with a chance of more rain tonight - we'll see what happens tomorrow. Keep in touch!
