Rick had a 3 person 4 hour charter today for Miss Judy. I was at the bait
store at 5:15 am to pickup bait, even though these guys wanted to leave
at 10, which we did. Troy was heading back to the middle east next week,
so his friends Pete and Bubba wanted to go fishing. We started the day
catching a few redfish, 1 slot and 1 over slot at 26 inches. Water was
warm at 89°At most spots. Water was clear and the tides were gentle
considering the full moon setting and the sun rising at the same time.
some redfish, we stayed out in Wassaw sound and concentrated on sharks,
where we caugt a small blacktip and a small bonnet head, followed by a
32 inch bonnet head and a couple of sea trout. This was a very enjoyable
trip, but Pete was unable to catch today.
hope these guys had as much fun as I did and Troy, the one in the Green
Shirt, stay safe over there.

Rick had a 2 person 5 hour charter today for Miss Judy. We departed the
dock at 6:30 am and the water temp was 87°. The air temp got up into
the upper 80's while we were on the water. We had to fish the last 3 hours
of the outgoing and the first hour of the incoming. Out in Wassaw sound
we caught and released about 8 small redfish during the falling tide.
When the tide changed we tried an incoming trout drop and caught and released
8 or 9 keeper trout. This was a welcomed surprise since most predictions
have eluded to a massive trout kill this winter. However these were slot
trout and possible have just arrived about 2 months late. Below is Joe
holding a 15 inch trout caught on a live head hooked brown shrimp.
Jeremy had a 2 person 4 hour charter today for Miss Judy. They hit the

Rick had a 3 person 6 hour charter today for Miss Judy. This was a good
trip despite the intense heat. I started the day early (5am) by catching
some pogies to go with some live shrimp I got from Adams Bait house. Picked
up the group from Indiana at 8am and we headed to Wassaw Sound.
temp was 85- 86, but very clear despite coming off a new moon. Started
the day catching some ladyfish and small blacktip sharks. Moved around
the sound and had a very nice redfish break off, due to some faulty power
pro. I had two reels filled with 20lb and it would not hold up. Took care
of that when I got back in. This redfish was a fat 30 inch red and broke
off just out of reach of the net. Also lost a nice bonnet head at the
net ( broke off).
moved around qute a bit and finally got a redfish bite going. We netted
2 that were 26 and 28 inches and kept 3 slot reds and 1 flounder for a
meal. Released everything else including a short speckled sea trout. All
in all a good day on the water, and just got brushed by a lightning storm
on the way in. We were plenty of distance away, but it was moving in the
direction we were going. You can tell by the sunrise, this was going to
be a hot day.

was good and the wind was light and variable. They went to Wassaw sound
to catch a few sharks and some redfish. They kept a few reds, and a black
drum and released everything else. Capt. Jeremy took a minute during the
action to snap a picture of one of the oversized reds that they caught

any available natural bait. Besides a few live shrimp, Capt. Jeremy caught
a cast net full of small pogies that the reds exploded on. ( tip of the
