Hello everyone, and welcome back to this week’s report!  This past week the fishing has been decent as the moon approached with some surprises from the bottom dwellers.  The bottom fish have not been as active as we had hoped approaching the moon, but decent enough for the table.  The offshore bite was a little up and down, but seemingly became better once the moon arrived late in the week.  This is a little backwards, but going from very little current to it picking up makes sense.  The reef remained decent post spawn, but slacked on the slow tide.  Fish are still hungry and you can catch enough for dinner no worries.  The weekend weather looks good for the holiday, and the water traffic will be plentiful I am sure.  Looking forward to getting this summertime fishing moving in a consistent direction.  Be safe out there everyone!  Check back with you next week!  Happy Memorial Day!

Tight Lines,
