You never know what the water conditions and temps are going to do… we try very hard to let everybody know that half-day nearshore trips are targeting the smaller species such as bluefish and spanish mackerel. We just do not have enough time to get you to where the gulf stream species live…. please do not expect to find the type of fish that typically require an all-day, go to the gulf stream, 30 to 50 mile adventure to bring home….. and then you have a day like today! Pip… you are one lucky b…. Limit of bailer dolphin on the beach plus a nice gaffer bite – all on a 4 1/2 hour NEARSHORE trip… if only this would happen every day!! Thank you guys so much for an awesome trip and hope everybody didn’t hurt too bad the next am!!
