Monday September 2nd

Happy Labor Day . The Summer season has unofficially come to a close, and the last weekend of the season was as good as it gets for action. The last couple of weeks brought a lot of friendly folks from up North to the area as well as families with kids who don’t have to be in school till after the holiday. We kept the younger ones busy with small Hammer and Bonnet Head Sharks as well as tons of Whiting, Croaker, and even some Spanish Mackerel that found their way into our inshore waters. We also caught several nice Jacks that came within casting distance of the boat. This weekend though put us back behind the Shrimp Trawlers with the older kids and adults opting for some larger specimens.  Those Shrimpers usually don’t disappoint and the action was off the charts. Nearly every Blacktip Shark we hooked up was well over 100lbs and several came within 200lbs. Some of them did their best Tarpon impersonation with leaps and spins 8ft into the air time and time again all while corkscrewing and backflipping to our delight. We brought a couple of Bull Sharks along side the boat that were well over 250lbs and nearly 7ft in length that just reinforced the rule of not swimming in the water when Shrimp boats are present. I think the next few weeks will offer more of the same, along with a possibility of seeing more Mackerel, Jacks, and even a school or two of Tarpon in our inshore waters, before they head south next month as water temps begin to lower. The Bull Redfish scene will slowly start to increase by months end and then most everyone’s favorite time of the year will be in effect. October and November are just around the corner so its time to tune up the spinning reels and get ready for another Redfish season. Thanks for checking us out. Have a Blessed day and tight lines!
