Rick had a 8 hour 5 person charter today for Miss Judy Charters. Upon
pickup only 4 of the group showed, and they cut the trip short to 6 hrs
due to the weather. We fished thru several storms with the water temp
at 85° and choppy to rough in most spots. Fished around Wassaw sound
and caught a few trout but a huge amount of ladyfish. Tried for large
sharks and tarpon near the end of the trip. Caught one 6 foot shark that
released himself befor I could get a picture. Then caught 2 more small
ones. A good day on the water considering how rough the water was. Had
some real nice swells on the ocean side of Cabbage island. Didn't get
a picture of the sunrise due to heavy clouds and rain.
Jeremy had a 4 hour 2 person charter today for Miss Judy Charters. Fished
out in the sound with water temps in the upper 80's. Didn't take the camera

Rick had a 4 hour 3 person charter today for Miss Judy Charters. Trip
started at 8am. and we fished the incoming tide. Started out in wassaw
sound, around where we scouted yesterday, but had to move frequently due
to dodging several thunderstorms. They started moving in from the south,
then seemed to move in from the east. Got in heavy rains a couple of times
but were still able to catch a few fish. Caught and released a few sharks,
speckled seatrout and undersized redfish. Rain seemed to keep the heat
Rick had a scouting trip today with his good friend Bill Coslett from
Florida. We started at 6:30 and fished all the incoming. Started in Wassaw
sound and finished at St. Augustine cut. Water clarity was ok in the sound
but as the tide started coming in it got cloudy. Caught a lot of small
reds and trout and kept a few trout for a meal. It was a good day on the
water with a good friend. Sun just starting to rise at 6:15 am.

at10:30 am. Again they had to deal with fast current and high tides. This
group wanted to catch a few sharks, but settled for some flounder, trout
and small redfish. They kept a few fish and released the rest. Water temp
is in the upper 80's out in Wassaw sound. They did manage to catch and
release at the boat a huge bonnethead shark.

trout and reds, but were releasing everything. They got into a huge school
of undersized redfish out in Wassaw sound as well as a few trout. They
tides were extremely high and the water was a turbid color, they caught
most of the fish on the last hour of the trip.

Capt. Jeremy had the day before, Dr. Kimmy White and his son Christian.

were just not legal size today. We did catch and release a large bonnet
( trip 1)
Rick had a 6 hour 4 person trip for Miss Judy today. This was a group
trip, that I have had with Patrick several times over the last few years.
He brought another law enforcement agent and 2 fireman this trip. We had
nonstop action most of the day and lost an oversized redfish at the boat.
The water temp was 89° at most stops. We left at 6:30 am and finished
by 12:30 pm. Water clarity was excellent and we fished the outgoing water.
We kept a few trout and a couple of bonnethead sharks. More people are
opting to keeping the sharks since the trout are a little more scarce
( trip 2)
Captain Jeremy took a father and son out from 1pm until 6pm and they caught
several trout and undersized redfish. They didn't take any pictures on
this trip. Pictures below are of Trip1. Unfortunatly one of the bonnethead
sharks was on the verge of spawning.

Jeremy had a 4 hour 2 person trip for Miss Judy today. Water Temp was
89°at Wassaw Sound. This was almost a carbon copy of 8.2.2010. However
these guys wanted to catch some sharks, so they caught a few sharks, kept
2 nice bonnet head sharks and kept 6 speckled seatrout for a meal. They
actual caught around 50 trout, but had about half of those were short
by a cats whisker.
another note, we lost a bolt out of the powerpole and also the number
1 livewell pump went out. I had Troy Bradley plumb a 2nd livewell pump
and raw water pickup 2 years ago. It paid off today and Capt. Jeremy just
had to flip a couple valves and switches, didn't lose a single live bait
BAIT HOUSE. Troy then came to the marina late today and installed
a replacement pump and a new bolt for the powerpole. Back in business
without missing a beat.
A huge thanks to Troy Bradley (912)682-8465
