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!
