There was still a little heave left in the ocean this morning, but all reports from out there said it laid down very nicely and came a nice day. We’ll see what next week has to bring with tropical storm/hurricane Franklin going by, but if Mother Nature treats us right we’ve got some of the best fishing of the season left to go.
Captain Monty Hawkins of the Morning Star had a nice day around his rail today with some big sea bass, some flounder and even a few mahi mixed in.
Despite dire predictions and remnants of last night’s swell causing some an inner ear distress – came a nice day offshore. Put some pretty fish in the boat too.After Ed from Bel Air, MD & Kevin from WV dropped 20 more blocks at Capt Bob’s Memorial Reef (makes 4263 reef blocks and 60 reef pyramids at that reef – reckon Bobby’s will be the first to reach 5000 blocks) ..afterward we paddled on off a good ways. Ron was first to limit on cbass. Caught a couple mahi too. Four others would follow suit. Nice fish along the rail – even a few fluke. As has so often been the case, Ed parlayed his reef building karma (sorry about the camera malfunction!) into the pool fish. Happens fairly often.. Became truly nice on the way home. Will soon be releasing September’s trip schedule. Lot of mahi fishing at first.. Cheers, Monty
Captain Chris Mizurak of the Angler reported a decent day of fishing ocean structure today as well with some nice sea bass and flounder.
Capitan Nick Skidmore and the crew of Jacked Up out of Bahia Marina had Robert and his guys out for a bachelor party and they showed them a good time trolling up some fun inshore species.
