Today's Notes:

It's SHARK WEEK!!!

In honor of Shark Week it only seems fitting to mention how good the shark fishings is right now. There are several options to catch one. You can take a Shark Fishing Charter on almost any one of the boats in our charter feet, use you own boat or go surf fishing for them. We enve have Family Land Based Shark Fishing and Tagging Excursions.TBS that do surf fishing trips for them. Did I mention how plentyful they are this summer. It's been a long time since i... have seen this many sharks in the local waters and very large ones also, especially the Bull Sharks and the Tiger Sharks that have been caught laterly.

Bottom Fishing---Plenty of gag grouper, mingo snapper along with some red grouper and scamp. Of course we still have red snapper on Friday, Saturday and Sunday through Labor Day weekend. Also still more COBIA being caught bottom fishing now than there was during the spring migration.

Deepwater Bottom Fishing---Fishing depts of 400 to 1200ft there have been good catched of snowy grouper, tilefish, barrel grouper and yellow edge grouper.

Near Shore Trolling--Heard a good one today the kings are bitting like a flock of misquitoes. Plenty of chicken dolphin and bonita and good numbers on Sailfish. Tarpon are slowing bown but still in the area.

Offshore Trolling--There are plenty of wahoo, some dophin, marlin and tuna. the water has been a little dirty with all the rain do not many rips or weedlines close, Concentrate you efforts on breaks and edges for the best action. Daytime Swordfish are still good and we just got a fresh supple of swordfish squid.

Pier Fishing---Mostly tarpon, ladyfish and hardtails, a few king and spanish mackerel.

Surf Fishing---Best SHARK FIshing in years, dawn, dusk and night time is best for SHARKS, ladyfish and hardtails during the day.

Bay FIshing--SLow on the trout with the hear and rain, Reds are ok in deep water and around bridges, fair amount of black snapper.
