OK, I'm over it.

Cobes are all but gone and the amberjacks don't jump. I'm sure with some hard looking we could turn up a few more cobia, but there are probably just as many in the sound that we're going to run accross while tarpon fishing. These SW winds are making it a little choppy out there and I'm tired of getting beat up in that tower or trolling for Spanish Mackeral. I'm ready for some silver.

If the tarpon won't cooperate or if the wind is blowing, at least we can make the day with the excellent puppy drum fishing along the shoreline. Mixed with some trout and flounder, the light tackle fishing is really good.

For those that still want the salt of the salt, there is still some good bottom fishing, amberjacks, plenty of bailer dolphin, groupers and more, Capt. Ray and Capt. Greg, a couple of remaining openings on The Run Off with Capt. Brian.

Capt. Gary and Joe Ward are the best of the best at beating the banks for the mixed bag.

Scattered openings remain for all of us through July, but if you are looking at a trip in August or September for the giant red drum, you better book now. On many dates, all of the guides are completely booked. Some of the guides have scattered openings, but from all the advance bookings, it's going to be a very busy season.
