This weeks update will be short and sweet. I’m progressing a little each day and hopefully this back issue will be fully healed by the time my brand new 2021 Skeeter SX-240 bay boat gets here sometime around the first week of September. I ordered this boat in the same color pattern as the 2020 model with the ghost grey gunnels and midnight black running surface. She will be powered by the another reliable 300 horsepower Yamaha outboard and have all the fishing bells and whistles that you all have come to expect from one of our charter vessels.
Captain Justin has been focusing on targeting tarpon in the lagoons on his fishing trips over the past week. As with any tarpon fishing scenario, some days the tarpon win. Tarpon are without a doubt one of the hardest fighting, acrobatic, and defiant fish that we target throughout the year. In fact most tarpon guides consider calling it a tarpon “success” if they can keep the fish on for three full jumps.
On a few of his trips, our fishing guests have pulled the fish to boat-side for the leader touch, and photo completing an exhausting battle with high fives and big smiles!
As you all know the big bull redfish start grouping into their spawning schools in the latter part of August and are usually in full swing around the first few weeks of September. If you would like to book a 4, 5, or 6 hour trip to try for these bruisers now is the time to act. (put reservations page link here) We have openings from August 20th through September 11th at this time. This is your opportunity to land a true “trophy” and fulfill your dream to catch one of these giant fish.
Until next time….Catch a memory!
