Report: For the past eight to ten days the fish have been off and on. Not the case right now because we are smoking the fish. J.C. McKenzie with his wife and twin boys were on the front end of this latest feeding frenzy catching nine nice fish from 2 to 4 pounds. Jerry Oliver and friend went out next and we literally could only get two polls in water and limited out with 20 fish in an hour and fifteen minutes. Their fish were between 3 and 6 pounds. Scott Haase, said 'it's worth every penny!', we started out slower than slow searching for surfacing fish. Three hours of that and I could see Scott was beginning to wonder if he was with a guide. Scott had hoped to come with his father-in-law or some friends from Atlanta but it just did not work out. They missed out. We moved to a new spot and in less than an hour Scott had his limit. When we first put in I put out four rods and everyone went of at the same time after that we just used one rod. The fish were between 2 and 6 six pounds. Between now and the next full moon the fishing should be spectacular. Capt. Dave is close to being fully booked and I have a couple of openings so call soon and one of us will put you on the fish.
