Offshore fishing was a blast today with catches as soon as the lines hit the water! Nice hauls came in with Gaffers, Tile fish, and a few Mahi. There were also a few citation qualifiers with Big Eye Tuna weighing in at 157 POUNDS! WHOA that was a huge one! Another happy angler hooked a Big Eye weighing in at 140's range!! Our docks have been colored nicely with Yellowfin Tuna today! The largest we have on record was 122 pounds & another at 82 pounds. Unfortunately, some of our anglers took a hit with their yellowfin catches when the sharks stopped by for lunch.
Nearshore anglers brought in mostly Cobia. One citation was issued for a 40 pound Cobia!! Not too shabby!!
Inshore fishing was a bit slower due to the warmer water temps today. Regardless, our docks were lined with blues, speckled trout, flounder, Red Drum and a few spinner sharks.

Unfortunately, we had no pics to post with our report for today. I guess you'll just have to take my word for it on the big ones we brought in and "the big ones that got away!" Until tomorrow ~ Kelly
Yesterday, our offshore boats were extremely happy with the awesome amount of big-eye tunas making it to the docks! There were 28 CITATIONS for big-eyes yesterday!
