Capt. Jeremy ran 2 back to back trips today for Bull River Marina.
They tried for Bull Reds, but didn't get one today. Water speed is exceptionally
fast with the Moon almost at the new phase. Temps are still going up,
so expect a trout bite very soon. They caught and released several sharks
and 1 nice leapord ray and a smooth dogfish, as well as a huge stingray
estimated at over 50 lbs.
Capt. Jeremy had a 6 hour 3 person trip today with Ronnie and
his family from Murfreesboro, Tn. They did not get a bull red today, but
did catch and release quite a few bonnethead sharks. Water temp is in
the low 70's , but clarity is stained at best. After his 6 hour trip,
he ran a 4 person 4 hour trip for bull river marina. They hooked and lost
a tarpon and got spooled a few minutes later. Not a bad day on the water.
