   Much Improvement yesterday afternoon. Now I'm sure this wasn't everyone's story but we did have some nice pictures come in. First up Matt is back fishing the 4x4 beach and caught some nice fish and the puppy drum and black drum were around and as always thanks for the update, Matt. Next up Bill and Chris Anderon sent in their photos in with their 29" 6 to7 # trout and it is a beauty and they are from Charleston, SC. Brian Douglas was in the shop yesterday and if I remember correctly this was his first drum and then it looks like he bagged a striper to boot so some real nice catches for Brian as well and thanks to everyone who sent in the photos and great job!!

   We will see some larger waves today and the rip current will be strong as well and then I hope things settle down. The water is 66 today so we should see some good fishing this week as the tides will align up with morning and dusk so make sure your out there when the tides are changing this week. So we are seeing a good mix of fish and some nice quality fish.
  The piers this morning with blues and Spanish on them and again they have been seeing some good bites morning and dusk with a good mix too.
  The nearshore boats probably with the most luck right now with some good cobia fishing along with Spanish and blues on the outside while on the bayside limits of drum and trout around the inlet.
  Offshore: A good number of boats were out and there are a good mix of fish out there just not all the boats are finding the fish!! The tuna are scattered but there are some nice size yellowfin and blackfin and big eye out there. Wahoo and billfish are there as well. Lots of mahi have been caught. Bottom fishing remains strong with sea bass and tilefish.
