Hello everyone, and welcome back to this week’s report.  A little on the slow side this week with the fronts setting up and closing in.  The winds are going to really kick up this weekend and into early next week, so we will see how it pans out.  This week has been mostly King’s, with a sail or two mixed in.  A few bottom dwellers for the dinner table, and some Jacks, but not much more.  The sharks have been really bad all week even on the live bottom.  Even bait has been quite the struggle, but with perseverance we managed to catch what we needed.  Hoping for the best over the weekend, and hoping the wind stays more North.  It’s going to be blustery no doubt, so if you make it out be careful if you are in a smaller boat.  The land protects you pretty well on the Atlantic side, but it gets really rough where the current goes into the wind.  Good luck everyone!  See you next week!  I’m sure we will be getting back to normal. 

Tight Lines,

Capt. James Chappell
