The fishing at the end of August & the first of September has been nothing but hot. All types of billfish are being caught everyday. The White Marlin and Sailfish have been thick, with some boat seeing schools of these fish. The Dolphin fishing is the best I've seen in years. I f you can find some grass or something floating, chances are the Dolphin are not far away. The Tilefish are on the bottom in 225-250 ft. of rocky bottom. The nice size tuna are starting to show up in good numbers with a few going over the 100 lb. mark. Fall Striped Bass season is jsut a few months away.

Thanks, Capt. Ray
