Capt. Rick had a 4 hour trip today for miss judy. We departed the dock at 6:30am. First cast a huge ladyfish. Very hard to get to the speckled seatrout with these guys around. I had a father, Troy and his 2 sons who were all excellent anglers and very good sports. I am guessing we released at least 30 trout that were 12.8 inches long. Then we got into a school of undersized redfish as well. Did catch one shark, and some whiting mixed in with the trout. A good day of action, just not quite big enough to keep. However we did catch some very huge ladyfish, that is fun on light tackle. After dropping off my guys I spotted a waterspout where whe had just fished.

Capt. Jeremy had a 3 person 6 hour trip today with Jason, a friend and his son. They caught alot of fish. Many ladyfish, a nice black drum, several speckled seatrout, bonnethead sharks, blue fish and a few keeper redfish as well as an oversized Redfish. Also kept 1 nice flounder. All in all a great day on the water.

Capt. Rick had a 2 person 4 hour trip as part of a group charter today. All I can say was it was hot. We had to pick up at the weston, so we fished the savannah river and didn't catch alot. This was the first time for one of the guys to even try fishing. We caught and released several redfish right on the edge of keeper size. Since we fished mainly in South Carolina waters, the slot is larger. Left the marina at 7am and picked up at the weston and fished until 12. They were not keeping fish, just part of a group. After the trip I spent the next 6 hours working on the boat.

Capt. Jeremy ran a 2 person 6 hour Trip today with William and Tina, that I had taken back in 2006! They had an excellent day on the water and caught a variaty of of fish, including speckled seatrout, sharks and flouder. However the flounder were short and no redfish today. However William had a nice shark that broke the rod, but they landed him anyway. They kept 18 speckled seatrout for a nice meal. A great day on the water.

Capt. Jeremy ran a 4 person 6 hour Trip today with Andrew and Audi and 2 of their friends. Andrew is a repeat and a very good angler and father. Water temp was 83 and stained, but they caught an assortment of summertime fish, kept a few speckled seatrout, and a flounder. Released some pregnate bonnethead sharks and a ribbonfish as well. Air was very hot today, but there was a slight breeze. On a sad note, we lost one of our beloved Cat's today named Sandy. He was 14 years old.

Capt. Rick ran a trip for Miss Judy today and had Les and his son Lincoln who were excellent anglers. We had a good bit of action most of the trip. Lincoln wanted to catch a bonnethead shark, but his dad did. We caught several croakers, redfish and speckled seatrout. We released all fish today and Les released a nice 21 inch speckled seatrout that looked to be ready to release her eggs any day now. The day ended with what I believe was a baby tarpon that broke Lincolns rod. His dad snapped a picture of it jumping, but it did get off the hook at the boat. A baby tarpon and ladyfish look a lot alike, and I do believe this to be a baby tarpon, just couldn't see the thread off the dorsal fin in the picture. Water temp was 83 and stained to opaque at most drops.

Capt. Jeremy got to take Proctor of Admirality Dennis Obryan To deliver Tshirts and contact information for waterman or people that definatly work on the water, like people that dredge, tugboats, etc. We have provided this service for many years and is much appreciated. Here is a couple shots of Dennis delivering his information.

Capt. Rick had a 2 person 4 hour trip today for miss judy charters with Brandy and Mitt. Part of an 8 boat trip. we had nonstop action from the first bait in the water until the last one. All trout, redfish and a few bluefish with a croaker or 2. Not a bad 4 hours on the water. Water temp is 83 and clear.

Capt. Jeremy had a 2 person 6 hour trip today departing the marina at 7am with Michael and his 9 yr old son. Capt. Jeremy reported that they caught quite a few specks and redfish and a decent shark on the first cast. This was more of an instructional trip as they did not want to keep fish. Just wanted to see our techniques and how we rig our equipment. Capt. Jeremy tried to explain as much as he could about inshore coastal ga fishing in the 6 hours they were out.

Capt. Jeremy had a 3 person 6 hour trip today departing the marina at 7am. Rained all night but was clear and cloudy most of the day. They caught quite a few fish, even though the water clarity was stained to muddy at some places. Kept a few trout today.

Capt. Rick had a 4 hour trip departing at 6:30 that got stormed out, so we didn't go. However Capt. Jeremy had a 6 hour trip departing at 11am that did go. He reported intermitten rain, but mostly clear. They caught another mixed bag of fish and kept 3 flounder and 3 speckled seatrout for a meal. All other fish were released unharmed.

Capt.Jeremy had a 4 hour trip today for bull river that departed at 8am. He reported a lot of action today. They caught several keeper seatrout, with a mixed bag of the other summer fish, which includes redfish, ladyfish, bluefish and sharks. However today they did not get any flounder. Started off foggy,cloudy and a little rainy but it cleared up nicely other than the wind. Water was clear at most drops.
