  Well, It's Friday and the last chance for most folks to give it one more try before they leave. I was out there yesterday and saw a few friends out there this is the time of the year when we take the employees out fishing and most of them have never fished before. Yesterday definitely wasn't the day to take them it was very slow and we ended the day with one spot and one pinfish and I threw everything out there in hopes of getting something. I usually do fairly well this time of the year when we go but not this time and it just goes to show you that's fishing!!
  Certainly, that's not how Chris Brown's vacation went he did very well this last week and he sent in a few pics of a nice drum and he also caught some giant mullet and I mean these things were huge defiantly citation size, all in all, he caught 35 to 45 fish with some small pompano and a few keepers so an excellent week for Chris. Thanks for the report and pictures Chris we will see you next time.
  The piers saw some good action this last week and did take a nose dive yesterday and they are alow this morning as well. They did see a 42-inch cobia and a 10-year-old caught a 15# king mackerel and there was black drum, sheepshead, and a mix of other fish. Nearshore boats are bringing home Spanish, dogfish. triggers, sea bass, and ribbonfish. Offshore has slowed a touch but the mahi bite is very good with some yellowfin in the mix and some sailfish.

Today is national dog day so go out and catch a puppy---------Drum

Next week's phrase to save 10% on your purchase is. "How's the fishing? Unforgiving?" If you read the report it will be easy I will try to give some hints in other reports but this will be the only time I put the secret phrase in. Good Luck!!

Charters are available just give us a call and we will set you all up it's as easy as it can be and we have some great boats and captains.
