Happy Sunday everyone! Good week of fishing except for the crazy weather at the beginning of the week but we needed it and it really cooled the water off and we really needed that! By Wed. the water was in the mid 70's and the fish loved it! This is going to be a great fall with the amount of fish I'm seeing and catching now plus we are covered up with bait and that always makes it better! This past week we had snook, trout, a few reds, snapper, Spanish mackerel, and a few other fish mixed in. This is a great time to hit the water too as there is very low boat traffic and fishing pressure. Keep in mind that fall is right around the corner so if you were planning to get out this fall give me a call or email and we will get you booked and ready to go! Hope you all have a great week coming up! See you soon!
