The SW wind started up yesterday evening and continued through to today. So, the Offshore fleet remained in port. The Inshore boats are able to fish on a fairly windy day. That's when the Red Drum likes to bite and bite they did. The Bluefish, Sheepshead and Speckled Trout got in on the action too.

This morning started out with quite a light show. Heavy thunderstorms kept most of the boats tied up until they passed. Once out to the deep they scrapped out a day of fishing. They slung a few Wahoo on deck along with some Blackfin Tuna, good catches of bailer-size Dolphin, and a variety of bottom fish. The Inshore fleet had good catches of Bluefish, Speckled Trout and some Spanish Mackerel.
The weather is calling for more SW wind for most of the week. It will be a wait-and-see scenario.

The morning started out pretty and a couple of big boats headed out to the fishing grounds.

This morning had a little too much wind and thunderstorms for the big boats to make it out, so they stayed tied to the dock. The Inshore boats had a good day on the Sound. They had slot-size Red Drum, Bluefish and some pretty Speckled Trout. All three are very good eating fish.
The next few days don't look very fishable for the Offshore fleet. We will have to keep checking the weather and see what happens.
