From Captain Payton

Another rough week weather wise for us out there. Wind has not been our friend this past month, unfortunately.

The boathouse Cobia tournament has begun, and they’re starting to get weighed in! A few nice ones have been weighed already, I believe a 72lber is leading right now.

Kings have shown up in force now and I expect a lot to be brought to the docks in the next week as the weather improves.

Spanish have been running hot and lots are being brought in. I expect to see them continue to be a big catch with this tough wind conditions we’ve been having.

The mingo & white snapper bite has continued to be steady when we can get out there. Amberjack have been good, and the season starts May 1st for them! Don’t wait too late to book a trip to try and bring some nice amberjack home!

We look forward to a nicer week next week (hopefully) and a better report!

Tight lines y’all!
