This morning 5 boats off the fleet took to the deep bright and early. The Backlash, Capt Cheryl, GitRDone, Instigator, and the High Hopes are all fishing offshore today! The Backlash returned flying several White Marlin release flags! The Instigator pulled back to the docks with several release flags flying as well as some nice Mahi!
Today appears to have been a pretty good day offshore! We have seen a little bit of everything; release White Marlin, Blue Marlin, and even a release sailfish flag has been flown! We have seen several nice Mahi hit the dock as well!

We have 5 inshore trips scheduled in the book today. The Top Notch and Veteran will be back in around 11, before heading back out around noon for afternoon trips. The WaveRunner should return to the docks around noon. So be sure to check back with us this afternoon to see how the inshore bite was this morning, we should be seeing some nice catches of Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish, as well as possibly a Cobia or two!
The Veteran just returned to the dock with some nice Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish. The Top Notch also hit the docks with some nice Spanish and Blues, followed by the WaveRunner with another nice haul of Spanish Mackerel and Bluefish! The Top Notch just came in with a beautiful Cobia as well as a citation 37lb 8oz King Mackerel!
Rudee Inlet continues to have a bite of Croaker and Spot. Bloodworms and Squid seem to be the bait of choice for these fish. We have also received reports of some nice Flounder being caught on live minnows, as well as the occasional Puppy Drum hitting on cut bait.
