Despite some of the most extreme tides of the year this past week, we managed to keep the fishing rods bent and have success with various Sharks including Blacktips, Lemons, Bonnet heads and a few others. The Shrimping fleet remained in port due to the new moon tides, and that kept us from landing the larger 100lb+ sizes that we had become accustomed to the previous weeks. We took a break from the Shark fishing and fished for Spanish Mackerel one morning and caught close to a dozen that provided us with some really fun ultra-lite action. Most were 3-5lbs and while they were a fun diversion from the Sharks, we were really hoping to snag a King Mackerel or several, that would exceed 30lbs or more. Oh well, at least we managed to stay busy and keep everyone entertained in between the unbelievable tidal surges we had to endure. This coming week, the tides return to normal phase, and hopefully the weather stays calm and allows us an opportunity to hook into some Jacks, Possibly a Tarpon, or some more Mackerel. Will also be keeping our fingers crossed that the Shrimp Trawlers return to the nearshore areas and bring with them the huge Beasties that they attract, and that provide so much entertainment for us.  That’s my report and I’m sticking to it.  Tight Lines Ya’ll !
