Marching Right Along Through Spring Break

I'm a little behind in posting my fishing report and spring break update. Life on an island is not quite like what you see in a Corona commercial. Lots of busy days on my end. In general, things are pretty good. There is lot's of people in town and the weather has been pretty nice for a while. Perfect for your vacation! So, what do you want to do?

Getting antsy yet? February can be a tough month up north. I know from experience. I have some good news! We really don't have any measurable winter here anymore and flights are said to be 13 percent cheaper than last year. That means you have really no excuse to not abandon your winter life for a week and come play on the boat with me. I call that a good life decisi...

Now is the time to get your reservation placed for Christmas...

October Report

I see the changes! The water is cooling off. The air has less bite to it. Birds and bait are returning to our area. We are finally outside of the hottest summer in history. So glad it is behind us!!! What remains of our summer weather is a typically stable period of weather that gives us unlimited options for the month.

I'm writing this early to will our way into September. Anything to get past the heat of July and August. This is also the peak of hurricane season and watching the weather and adjusting accordingly in advance makes or breaks trips. Lots of topics to cover, so let me dive into weather and conditions.

It's been all over...

Helping You In August

Ohhhhh July. That was a doozie! Record heat on top of record head. I think we had 21 consecutive broken daily high temperatures with 40 something days of heat index well above 100 degrees. I had my appendix removed July 3 and missed a week of charters. My return was not as kind and gentile as I had hoped. I had 3 charters in a row with sick customers. With my body b...
