From Captain Payton

What a week! It’s been some great weather so far, and snapper season begins tomorrow with some great weather ahead.

Mingo bite has been great recently, and we’ve been getting them on two hook rigs with cut bait over big natural bottom. Plenty out there!

King bite has still been slower, but we are picking up a few in the mornings here and there.

Mahi was great on the weedlines last week. The mahi bite has slowed some now, but will be on and off with the weather conditions all summer most likely. Always check under the weeds!!

Red snapper begins tomorrow and we can’t wait. We’ve been catching some studs really close to shore and hopefully get a few tomorrow for opening day!

If you haven’t yet, definitely click the book now button to secure your spot to catch some red snapper with us this summer!

Tight lines y’all!
