Today’s weather was way better inshore than it was yesterday, but it was still too windy for the offshore fleet to get out to the Poor Man’s to beat up on the tuna some more.  Strong winds and high seas are supposed to settle down over the next couple of days so hopefully the tuna are still chomping when the guys are able to get back out.

Now that a lot of schools are out of session we are starting to see the inshore party boat fleet on the water pretty much every day.  Captain Drew Zerbe of the Tortuga reported that today was way better than yesterday both weather and fishing wise.  Captain Drew reported a great trip this morning with a 21 1/2″ red drum caught by Joshua Dougay from Hattiesburg, MS and a 20 1/2″ flounder caught by Trish Huber of Wilmington, NC.  Joshua’s red drum was caught by the concrete plant on a squid and shiner combo and weighed 4 pounds 8 ounces.  Trish’s flounder was caught in the thorofare on a squid and shiner combo and weighed 3 pounds 9 ounces.  Trish’s flounder is the largest caught on the Tortuga this year and is in the lead for the season long derby which is worth $500.


The Angler with Captain Chris Mizurak was one of the only boats to venture out of the inlet this morning.  Captain Chris reported a big swell, but fishable conditions.  He also reported a pick of sea bass like the nice one displayed by this junior angler.


My buddy Big Bird Cropper was out on the water today with his young friend Noah.  Noah and Bird caught 11 rockfish and two flounder for a nice day of Roy Riggin’.
