Thursday September 8th

The past 2 weeks I spent more time surfing and working on my golf game than I spent actively fishing. My golf game still needs lots of work. Anyway, earlier this week the weather and seas turned more favorable and we managed to get out a couple of days. While we were able to get bait, the water was still somewhat dirty, the ocean a bit rough, and the bite was not that good. The shrimp boats that we like to follow around were not working so we had to drift over areas that we usually stay somewhat busy in. A few nice lemon Sharks and a couple of Duskys that were no more than 30lbs were are only shots. We stayed inshore 1 day and managed some nice Bonnet head Sharks as well as a few more Dusky Sharks weighing in at about 25lbs. Not quite the size and fast paced action that we had been experiencing over the past month, but we managed to stay comfortable and get some action. I’ve had some folks ask about the Bull Reds arrival into our area waters and I tell everyone that by the end of this month, they should be showing up in good numbers. Till then we will hope to see the shrimpers back in action and will pay close attention to the nearshore sandbars for any early arriving Redfish as well as schools of Tarpon that are active this time of year. Thanks for checking me out and have a blessed day.
