Mahi Mahi and More!

Mahi Mahi has been the main course for us this past week… we had a few weather days and then a super nice class of fish with several citations!!! CONGRATULATIONS and a huge thank you to everybody!!! Lots of bill fish sightings and the TUNA are still around as well plus our first token Barracuda!! (Ceviche time!).  A big shout out to our young anglers as well… it is tons of fun having the kids with us and getting the next generation hooked on this craziness is one of our passions!  Give us a shout… it’s time to fish!

  

Welcome Back!

Welcome back to all our visitors!  Our season has kicked off with a great start… thanks everybody!!  We have a couple of weather days ahead of us but then will be back at as soon as the winds and seas settle…. We are full the rest of May but have days open starting June 3rd – Save your spot!! Let’s go fishing!!!

Mahi, Tiles, Dragons, Tunas, Mackerels Oh My!

A quick catch up – fishing has been off the hook! Our offshore trips are smacking the fish and different everyday – TUNA and DOLPHIN (Mahi Mahi), TRIGGERS and TILES and even an early SAIL!  Nearshore trips have found the RIBBONS, MACKEREL, SHARK, and BLUES!  Summer is here and is the best time to get out there… bring the grown ups or bring the family – tons of fun and making memories!! Give us a call if you are ready to go!

 

Spring is here and Summer is close!!

We are wrapping up another fantastic Spring Turkey Season and looking so forward to FISHING SEASON!!  May and June are hot COBIA months and the fish are showing up already… we have a few spots left but they are filling fast – please let us know asap if you need to save a date!! It’s time to get out there!! A few memories from last cobia season…. let’s go fishing!!!!

   

Winter Catch Up!

We have had one of the busiest and most fun winters!  Exhausting but crazy rewarding, super fun, non-stop and never a dull moment 🙂  A huge thank you to all our hunters… you guys are family to us and we cannot tell you enough how much we appreciate and love you!! We miss everyone already 🙁  We kicked off the season out west and then got down to business back home with waterfowl, upland game hunts, winter boat maintenance and continuing construction on the new lodge (completely restored 1850 farmhouse…almost 3 years of work and finally getting to the end!).  Our lodge is scheduled to be up and running for turkey season and we are really excited to stop building and start enjoying it!  Upland Game Preserve Season continues until the end of March and we have had a blast starting up this new adventure!  We had a soft opening last season and with private hunts this year we are well on our way – we still have some availability this year of anyone is interested in getting some shooting in before it’s back to the water… Fishing will start rolling next month with inland Rockfish and we start chasing Turkeys in April… then… COBIA season!!  We are starting to fill days in May and June for the Fistful so please give us a call if you have days you want to save… it won’t be long before the winter is gone and sunny warm fishing days return!! Give us a shout!!

         

Late Summer Great Fishing!

The last 2 weeks have been full of great fishing and amazing charters!  We have had a number of young anglers lately and what an impressive display of ability and enthusiasm from all of them – Every one of our kids jumped right into the fray and man… you can’t slow them down.  Some are new to the game and some are already well on their way to becoming pros (B. Boys – you know who you are!!) – Awesome job everybody!! One of our goals is to create an experience for them (and their adults) that will turn into a life-long passion… it really gets your heart fired up to see that spark.  Thank you so much to all our groups – Grown-Ups and Youngsters!  *** A huge Thank You goes out to Capt. Jim on the HogWild and Capt. Troy on the Fowl Hooked for helping us juggle some of our groups during our unexpected quickie haul out and to all the gang down at Bluewater for pulling together and getting us up and running again – JP – we owe you… as usual!! Thank you so much…. I wish I could have seen you on that lift!! ***

 

Last but not least – we do have some days open for the next few weeks – the Fistful gets a break starting September 17th this year so let us know if you want to get out there before we turn to the ducks!  The Billfish are starting to show… the dolphin are here on the Full Day trips… the Big Drum are hanging around… the Mackerel are snappin… the blues are snappin…the Jacks are snappin… the weather is beautiful… Let’s go Fishing!!
