June 22nd

I fished today for the 1rst time in 4 days. We have experienced some serious NE winds over the past few days and the nearshore to inshore waters have been nearly unfishable. I’m not about to take someone’s hard earned money for a less than average bite and get them seasick on top of that. The waters were pretty dirty today, but we managed a few small Blacktip Sharks and a nice 4+ft Dusky this morning. We fished a mile or so off the beach this afternoon behind some Shrimp boats that were at work and caught several nice Blacktips over 50lbs as well as a 70lb Dusky. We earned everything though in 2-4ft seas that I don’t normally fish in. Oh well, my customers were up to it, and even though Miss Leslie succumbed to the motion of the ocean, we were able to battle some nice ones. The waters should clean up and mellow out through out the week so I’m hopeful for even better and bigger action to soon come. There were reports of some Kings being caught at the shipping channel between Hilton Head and Tybee Island Ga. today, so we might give that a go tomorrow depending on ocean conditions. I’m optimistic that the fishing will get better over the next couple of days and I will let you know by this coming weekend. Blessings!
