Hello everyone, and welcome back to this week’s report. Another great week here in our beautiful piece of paradise. The fishing has been pretty good lately, but the lousy weather conditions and the fronts create issues for us when it comes to catching bait and they can become very sporadic. Although it isn’t the way we usually like for it to be, we always power through. Having said that, this week we have relied mostly on the wrecks just due to the amount of variety they hold. There have been a few sailfish around, and some nicer king mackerel on the edge of the reef.  This has managed to keep us plenty busy, as well as some yellowtail snapper fishing on the shallow Patch reefs.  Nothing too crazy to write home about, but enough to make the smiles at the end of the day. One exciting note is there have been some Cobia around, and some nice ones at that up to 60 pounds. Looking at some wind coming late in the weekend early next week, but after Tuesday the weather looks like it’s going to be pretty good. Saturday looks pretty decent, but Sunday is looking windy so if you’re gonna make it out, be Careful. That’s all for this week, check back with us next week for a new report.

Tight lines,

Captain, James Chappell
