The water is slowly clearing up and SWFL is open for business. The beaches are looking beautiful with less fish washing up each day. We are not out of the woods yet and still not keeping inshore fish, but things have gotten much better.
Took a nice family from California last week on a 6 hour charter. The bait stayed alive all day and we caught snook, snapper, and grouper all morning. We then took a little break so the family could walk the beaches of Cayo Costa and collect some shells. While in the area was did some sightseeing and say manatee’s, dolphins, and multiple bird species. After that we went back towards the pick up/ drop off location and found a school of jacks. The entire family was hooked up at the same time on a couple of occasions, leading to some very exciting action and perfect way to end the charter.
