This 2017 season so far couldn't be better! The Striped Bass showed up early, Fluke came along early, Sharks showed up early, all due to the milder winter and hoards of bait (sand eels). Not only are the sand eels inshore, but are offshore too! School Bluefin Tuna are being caught around these schools of sand eels. When there is bait and Tunas, there will be sharks! Shark fishing has been on fire this season! During one of the tournaments a 780 pound Mako was caught. Numerous sightings of Mako and Thresher Sharks are seen on a regular basis this year, making for some great offshore action.
Back inshore, the Striped Bass have been providing steady action. A 60 pound Cow was brought in already this season by a 13 year old boy who just so happened to be fishing with me. Right place, right time, good tackle that held up, right fish! (that's the lucky part!!) The best part was it was a fish of a lifetime for this young man with autism!! Made my season!!!
Fluke fishing is off the scale this season also, in fact this 13 year old boy went out on a party boat on 7-27-17 and caught a 15 pound Fluke!!! I need to get him to buy me a lottery ticket!!!
Bottom fishing all around has been very consistant as well. Black Sea Bass, and Porgy are all over the place. Black Sea Bass and Porgy make for some delicious fish tacos.
Still have some open dates available, just call for availability so you don't miss out!!!

Tight Lines,
