Fish is on!

Great news now that NOAA has reopened the offshore waters!

Fresh: River is still low but lots of fish being caught on popping bugs. Catfish and warmouth being caught.

Bay: Get out early with this hot weather. Speckled trout starting back up, shrimp is getting bigger, redfish has tapered off a bit.

Saltwater: Lots of big king mackerel, some pompano and whiting. Heard that they are talking about opening up another snapper season.

Get out early! Shrimp is getting bigger. Come by the shop, we’ve got some.
