From Captain Payton

Windy week this week! Haven’t been able to do much fishing, but we did get out there on Sunday and Monday of this week.

Spanish mackerel have shown up pretty thick, and the kings are starting to show up to. It’s time to troll!

The triggers & mingo bite have been pretty consistent. We haven’t had much chance to fish for them because of the wind and waves, but the bite was good when we could drop on them.

Lots of nice grouper, snapper, and amberjack out there as well for some good tugs on the line. Big sharks lurking as well if you’re looking for some fun catch & release!

Cobia are being caught, but not in much frequency. Hopefully we see some more after these big south winds.

Tight lines y’all!
