This morning started out windy but by mid day the wind backed off and it turned into a pretty day on the blue water. Only one big boat made it out and they had a good day. They rounded up some nice gaffer Dolphin and had a good catch of Wahoo along with some Blackfin Tuna. Inshore boats had a good Red Drum day (they like the wind), and Spanish Mackerel and Black Pearl caught a nice Tarpon.
It's Father's Day so to everyone who is a special someone to a child, either grown or small, Happy Father's Day! We hope you had tight lines and calm seas today.

The entire fleet headed to the fishing grounds this morning in hopes of showing their parties a good time. They returned with some good catches of gaffer Dolphin, Wahoo, and some bottom fish; Tilefish, Snowy Grouper, and Rose Fish. It all sounds like some good eating to me.
