It's Sunday and boy is it HOT OUT!! Not sure how long this southwest wind we have is going to last this week I will have to try and take a look tomorrow. The water temp turned around from the other day from 68 to 81 today. So when you catch a fish it's already poached for your enjoyment. Tom hit the shop as always today and spends a lot of time on the island and gave a report and we have POMPANO finally now they are small but hey you never know we may see some larger fish come up with these temps. The bluefish are out there along with croaker, spot, mullet with some drum and trout. I had a customer come in yesterday and asked if I did the report to which I answered yes he said I always read it but this year I haven't been too sassy and I laughed, but he is right but I just haven't had much to complain about this year which also made me think I have also just fallen into this rut of just spitting out what going on and where. The answer is I have a hard time this year keeping up with everything and being understaffed as always and sometimes not even getting the report out and this time of the year just plain outright exhaustion. I will try harder I just need someone to piss me off so I can go on a rant I guess. The shark fishermen should do it give me time. We may see slower fishing this week just due to the wind which is affecting the Allice Kelly tournament going on right now. However, there is still some good offshore fishing to be had with some tuna, wahoo, mahi, blue marlin, white marlin, and sailfish. We also have some good charter fishing right in Corolla with Captain Josh sound side he has been doing very well with slot-size drum, black drum, and trout it is a fun trip. Nearshore trips seeing ribbonfish, blues, spanish, with some amberjacks to be had as well. So ready for some fun!! Last year we played a little game if you said a phrase or brought in a certain item you received 10% off your entire purchase. Just my way of saying thanks for supporting us. Now I have been wanting to do it again but as I said I have been behind. The rules are simple and this week I am late for starting it so TOM see if you are paying attention since you brought it up and I will try to get on a schedule for new arrivals each week. I generally will only put what I am seeking out once and I will put the next game in Let's do Fridays so the new folks have a chance. So at check out if you discreetly say the phrase to the clerk WHAT'S IN THE WATER, you will get 10% off your purchase. So this will run till next Friday and I will come up with something else for next week. So good luck and may the fish gods be looking in your favor!!

Charters are available this week just call to book yours!! Don't forget the crab and shrimp trips they are just as much fun to do and yes you keep what you catch!!

Send your fishing photos to us no matter what they are and a brief description like your name and where you're from and we will use it in the next fish report!! We thank you as always.
