    There was finally a little window of the 30 knot winds we have been having and I was finally able to get out a couple of days this past week and the fish were waiting and hungry. This past Friday I had Matt Mayfield and crew from Mississippi and it was a tough day. With a small craft advisory until 1 PM Friday lets just say it wasn’t calm but we were still able to bounce around a little bit and ended the day with a box of solid amberjack. Saturday I had half of a bachelor party with the other half with Kevin and it was finally calm enough to run long and it was a good choice. From the time we got there till we left we were busy getting bites unfortunately most of which we missed. I ended the day with 4 nice yellows and Kevin wound up with 6. Yesterday was the best of the days both fishing and weather wise.

    When we got where we caught them last weekend conditions had changed and there was no current and I started to wonder if I had made the wrong call thankfully it didn’t take long for one of the reels to start singing and it was on. Our bite to catch was much better going 5 for 6 with a couple double headers.

    Most of the fish were 30-50 lbs with the big one going 104#

    With only three people on board we decided that was probably plenty of tuna so we headed in and topped the box off with a nice limit of amberjacks.

    As you can see the fishing remains good and as we get closer to summer it should do nothing but get better. Give us a call for your day on the water.
