South Walton Smells Fishy

The past two weeks we've had some wonderful weather here at the beach.

Warm, sunny and calm with no crowds, it's times like this that makes you remember why you live here!

Alas, all good things come to end and it started blowing pretty dang hard out of the NE yesterday morning and the forecast is for that wind to continue for most of the week. No big surf on the beach (yet) but I sure wouldn't want to be two miles offshore in a 23 knot wind.

Tryin' to Reason with the Season

The last two weeks had us trying to reason with not just hurricane season, but the Feds fishin' season.

Harvey missed Florida completely but still had enough residual surf to keep us from fishing the first two days of our limited 10 day Triggerfish season and two of the last four days of Red Snapper by shutting down the first half of Labor Day weekend.

From Tunas to Tarpon

Today was my last day in Grayton/Seagrove for three weeks.

We are off to Indian Pass tomorrow for the annual Tarpon & Tripletail chase. Word from the guys over there is the fish showed real good several weeks ago and then thinned out with the weather we have had the past week. Tarpon like it hot, dry and calm and should show back up in force by the end of this week if the weather cooperates as predicted.

Snappers, Cobias and Kings, Oh My!

After a few real pretty days I am back on the hill today, Saturday, July 29th with a little blow from a summer cold (?) front.

The Gulf is just rough enough for it not to be fun and the forecast is for nice again tomorrow so it's a short break. The folks I had to cancel on Saturday morning got rained out a few weeks ago though so for them it's been a bad run of weather.
