Monday, August 14, 2017


"Thanks for checking in. George. We had an absolutely fantastic time. Day two was definitely a little slower than day one, but Jennings worked his tail off trying to put us on the fish.

In total, we caught about 50 fish including a mixed bag of about 18 diff species. And of course we landed that big 47 inch red. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and will definitely be back.

Thanks again to you and Anna for coordinating everything. Here are a few pics for your photo gallery."

Greg Wins!

Since the demise of the Oriental Rotary Club tarpon tournament, the locals have kept alive an annual friendly competition.  A dozen of the best tarpon fishermen in the state got together for a skate fest.   Plenty of stingrays, we ran out of bait and threw in the towel at 2:30 after about 50 skate releases.   Capt. Greg and several others who made the long run started seeing some fish, landing this beauty at 3:37 for the only fish of the tournament and good enough for the win.
Greg has bragging rights for a year.
