Current Fishing Report and Photo Gallery


Had a great time fishing with you and Billy on the 4th and 8th of July. You and Billy are some very good fishermen that work very hard and it showed in our impressive catch. Those were some hog yellowfins and some of the largest I have ever caught. Thanks for working with the first time anglers we had on both days also. You and Billy are defiantly blessed with more patience than me.

Also thanks for letting me get involved. I'm a novice offshore angler at best and I am always looking for tips and instruction on how to become a better fisherman. I learned many thing from yourself and Billy.

Could you please send me your recipe for the left over tuna steaks you told me on the dock. I suffer from CRS and have already forgot what you told me.

We are getting the pictures together and will email them to you soon.

I look forward to fishing with you again.
