Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!!
Summertime in this here in the fishing is off to a great start! Here is the report from my Lodge.
Summertime is here!!!! Had an amazing Memorial weekend with the Fairbanks group. These guys have been fishing Memorial weekend with me for eight years now. And we always have a blast! Not forgetting the other trips they take here during the year as well!!
With tropical storm Alberto bearing down on us for the weekend we made the decision to take a quick Friday afternoon trip and not run offshore on Sunday. Friday afternoon we made a quick limit of mangrove snapper and headed back to the lodge for dinner. On Saturday we ran off shore in search of tuna. In the morning we added a couple of black fin tuna to the box then made a short stop to catch our limit of Amberjack. We then headed to pull trolling baits on the rip line. We ended up catching 114 pounds of what was left of probably a 150 pound yellowfin tuna that the sharks decided to take a few bites out of. Calling it a day after some great fishing we headed back to The Waypoint for a crawfish boil that evening. By this time tropical storm Alberto was making his presence known in Destin and far away from us. Even though it was too rough to go offshore on Sunday Captain Rok of Venice Guide Service Took the guys out inshore fishing for redfish. And they had a blast quickly catching their limits between two boats by 11 AM.
We hope everyone had as wonderful of a memorial day weekend as we did here in Venice. The summer is just starting and we have a few months left of some excellent fishing give us a call to get in on the action!
