Howdy,

I apologize for the lack of reports the past week but I had a computer crash and it’s taken me a week to get back on track.

The inshore and bottom fishing has been the main focus of most boats the past week and the boats have been catching a good mix of fish.

Captain RJ has had a good week…on Monday he took a family out that had never fished…they ended the day with 2 big wahoo, 5 nice yellowfin tuna and a 700 plus pound black marlin…once again the area around the “26” produces a big marlin. RJ followed that up the next day with 7 roosterfish, 6 nice tuna and a 40 pound wahoo.

The guys on the “R&J” did a 1/2 day inshore trip with some friends and caught a half dozen roosterfish not far from the marina.

Captain Brandon on the Fish Whistle has been fishing up in the gulf and having good luck on the inshore and bottom fishing. Brandon has been using butterfly jigs in 60 – 80 feet of water and has been catching some big sea bass, roosterfish, snapper and groupers.

Captain Dave on the Missbehavin did a combo inshore/offshore trip recently and caught a couple roosterfish, a couple nice mahi mahi and a sailfish…not bad for a half day trip in rainy season.

I have not received many reports about the offshore fishing. The word I do get is the bite is OK. The average seems to be a couple sailfish, a couple mahi mahi and a couple tuna per boat per day.

Thanks for your time,

Bubba
