We enjoyed a 4 hour trip today with the Gogel family. The spanish mackerel bite was very slow, but the highlight of the day was our first cobia of the year. It weighed 36 pounds and gave a heck of a fight. The cobia have arrived including an 85 pounder that was weighed in by another boat a couple of days ago. Book a 4 or 6 hour charter and give it a try. See pic below.

On March 27th, we enjoyed a 12 hour bottomfishing trip with Alan and his son Josh. This was a private charter for father and son. We ended the day with a nice catch of fish for two people, including amberjack, scamp, triggerfish, white snapper, vermillion snapper and lane snapper.
