SUMMERTIME IS FAMILY TIME... FISHING, FUN AND SUN!
School is Out and Summer is Here!

With that said, lots of families will be heading to the coast for some quality family time and summer fun. Some will spend days fishing, others will be on the beach, at the water parks or just relaxing. 

Whatever you do, have a game plan, be safe!
 

Boating safety is always 1st on my mind when it comes to my family and I have some tips below to share with you!

1. Have enough life jackets on board. One for every person and a throw-able as required.  Wear them when under way.

2. Wear your kill switch. You never know what's going to happen.

3. Be aware of other boaters and watch out for waders. Lots of them in the water this summer.

4. When in doubt slow down, look, give way and be courteous.

5. Steer clear of others. Give plenty of room especially if they are anchored.

6. Maintain a good 1st aid kit and stay hydrated.

For those of you that have the desire to get wet and go wading:

1. Wear bright colors. Waders are hard to see from moving boats and bright colors help.

2. Have a wading buddy. You never know what might happen.

3. Don't go too deep. You might step in a deep hole.



Fishing has been very good these last several weeks. Croaker has been the ticket for trout. We have been targeting the deeper water, the pot holes along shorelines and bringing in nice box limits. Reds are a little harder to find this time of year. Use cut bait, mullet and pin perch. Target along the spoils and watch for the mud boils. The reds should be moving back into the flats anytime now that the rains have stopped!  Give me a call and let's go catch some really nice fish this summer with the family - fantastic to catch and even better to eat!!!

Now's the time to book a trip for the family. Take the kids out and have some fun. Watch their faces light up when they're hooked up. Bring your sunscreen snacks, drinks and let's go have some fun.

THANKS FOR READING....

Rod tips up and tight lines,
Capt. Russ
