On The Hook & In /Out of the boat

The pretty weather has been great for beach goers and fishing crews. Typical summer showers that breeze through have been an afterthought as we placed our gear in and watched fishing settle in.

Small blues still work the inlet areas on certain tides giving plenty for tacos and quick fish bites for the plate.

Warmer waters have shown us that still a stray ribbon has meandered.I have to say I loved her reaction straight out of a horror movie. I pulled the fish up over the washboards and turned her way with it on the line. That Ribbonfish’s teeth were Clacking.I asked her if she knew what she had just caught; how far do you think she sank into her seat cushions? Love my job!
Ribbons: Numbers from weeks ago gave way to bigger bites on the move.
I was fortunate to have an online personality who won many hearts with the “drop the blanket disappear from your pet” challenge. I think she hit the wall…no really…as she was running to hide…100k…ouch lol

She was my cookie monster and never let it be said she didn’t have a great personality, good sense of humor. So keep that in mind!

Albies, moonfish, and macks have made the pick this week. An occasional keeper king mack as well as many throw back kings mixed with the spanish have been a bonus!

The larger game fish have been on and off but when on; they have put my spinners in a tail spin! Cast them in, hook them up.

Does it always work like that? Heck no! Which is why I always emphasized that if you hit the red lottery you should enjoy it. They can be on for days then ghost every crew out there lol. My junior anglers and “guys who fish all the time” really got the show.

I KNOW it is alot of eye candy so don’t lose sight that all the photos are from trips and trips and trips and…! There is no list! Get out, enjoy it, fish it, no notions, and those are my crews.
I have more coming up. Today /Friday was good catch of some spanish, maybe king, shot on drum, one or two bailer dolphin extended trip ! Some species could go out of half day range if they continue to move. Cross your fingers !

If you want to go Saturday then give us a call at 252 423 0039 cell/boat Cpt Will. Want to hit it while it is good!
