Great Afternoon

Great Afternoon

We slipped out after work yesterday evening. It was slick calm after that monsoon that rolled through. We picked up some menhaden and anchored up with about an hour and half to fish before it got dark. First cast, the cork immediately went under and it was on. We ended up landing 3 nice reds, […]

Tropical Update

Tropical Update

Slim pickings, yet again, in the tropics for cyclones. A disorganized wave passing 045W continues to weaken as it drifts west. A more  organized wave southwest of the Cape Verde Islands shows more vigorous convection and a teasing hint of cyclonic swirl in the low levels; however, this feature falls apart before reaching 040W due […]

The Bait Rodeo

The Bait Rodeo

We had a very exciting trip today. After the two-hour bait rodeo, I put the hammer down and we ran 37 miles offshore inless than an hour. At one point during our trip we had three big tiger sharks around the boat and with them were at least 15 cobia. Lots of small ones and […]
