From Captain Payton

What a beautiful week it has been! Lots of fishing going on, and a whole lot of catching too.

The king bite has been pretty good, expecting it to continue to pick up! Looking forward to many more mornings full of trolling!

The mingo bite is on fire, and there’s some nice ones out there over the reefs. We are also getting a lot of white snapper as well.

The triggerfish have been thick as ever, and we are finding some nice ones in the mix as well. Catching limits lately at the tail end of the season before June gets here!

The gags and red snapper are only getting bigger right now, so the excitement is on for June to arrive!! We’re expecting a lot of traffic on the water, and a lot of people in town to fish!

Don’t wait too long to book that trip with us! We have a few spots available in June still for snapper! Click the book now button to get your trip lined up today.

Tight lines y’all!
