From Captain Payton

It’s sure been a beautiful week for fishing so far! While the weather continues to heat up, so does the fishing!

The mingo bite is strong, as well as the trigger and white snapper bite. Get those triggers while you can! Season ends soon on them.

Cobia are still being brought in to the docks fairly regularly at this point, and I’m sure it’s worth checking the surf still for a big ugly Cobia lurking in the shallows!

Kings bite has been great, the live bait has been active around the pass and we are catching most of our kings on live bait. They also can’t resist a crystal minnow plug.

We are gearing up for a long snapper season this year, and dates are filling up quick! Don’t wait too long to book your trip for this summer. We can’t wait to take y’all fishing!

Tight lines y’all!
