It’s been slow on the island with most anglers/tourist taking care of their kids returning to school. But, for the few fishing the channels and surf, there are still flounder (although a high throw back ratio), good sized croaker, pompano, nice reds, schoolie Striper and huge sharks (hammers, Finetooth).. For the flounder you’ll need fresh jumbo minnows or silversides n top off with a Gulp Swimming mullet in a tandem rig. Fishing the top of the incoming tide. For the surf, make sure you have some clams for those reds & striper been biting on cut baits like mackerel, bunker, small finger mullet and bloods. The rip tides have been so rough that we had no reports from Blackfish Banks artificial reef. However, it sure didn’t hinder the shark hunters from chasing some 5’ hammers n black tips sharks using clam chum logs n drifting mackerel or bunker in the slick. The crabbing is still going strong although the size has greatly diminished. The fall crabs are smaller but oh how much sweeter the meat.

Pictured is our fav customer, Mr. Sharkman, Rob Derr. This man is no slouch!! He pulls n hauls on vehicle motors so he’s no stranger to dealing with heavy weight. Plus he’s tall n built like the Rock - well, almost!! 😉 All that hype to let you get sn idea of how he flings around these 5’ thrashing, gnashing sharks in his boat AND 95% of the time he has his woman with him doing the ‘photo-op’!! LOL!!

Well the season has slowed down and that’s an understatement. Due to that we are beginning our fall hours;

this week our Tackle Shop will be closed on Tuesdays. Shop hours will be:

Sun- Thursday 7:00 - 5:00PM

CLOSED TUESDAY

Fri & Saturday 7:00 - 6:00PM
