Had some of our nations finest on the boats recently. Myself and captain Matt, recently ran a 2 boat trip of Special Warfare Combat Crewmen or “SWCC”. These brave young men were from all over the lower 48, but carried themselves the same. These special forces guys always seem to have the sam…

The last few days have been absolutely stellar fishing. Our boats have steadily fishing further west. The salinity has gone through the roof. Now the real fun begins.
I had a crew of first time salt water fishermen out on a charter recently. These are my favorite trips to take. Everything we see, do and catch on these trips is new and exciting. This trip would not disappoint either.
I’ve been watching the weather stations out in the MS Sound with an almost stalker-like fascination. It seems like every time I click on the one at St Joe point(near Bayou Caddy), the salinity is steadily going up. I have big hopes and even bigger plans, when things get back to normal to the west.
Things have a funny way of working out. A few days ago, I completely messed up a charter booking. I didn’t catch the mistake until the very last second. The forecast was calling for light and variable winds, and the fishing has been outstanding. I was NOT gonna miss such a great opportunity …
So the Bonnet Carrie spill way should be closing or closed in the next couple of days. I was always told, it takes about 2 weeks to 18 days for the fresh water to completely flush out. Then what?
Our last Cat Island Trip was simply amazing. Yes we caught fish, and yes the weather was nice, but sometimes there is just a little more to it. This trip was made up five father and sons.
Captain Matt and Captain Kenny were some of our first boats back out after TS Barry, earlier this week. Happy to report, they said the water looked great, and the fishing was awesome!!!
