  1. Details: Florida Pompano

    Looked like rain all day, didn't get a drop. Glad we headed out. Our nicest of 4 pompano and some whiting. Seaweeds getting bad tho.

  2. Details: Blacktip Shark

    Sunny and clear, 85°F, wind 5-7mph out of the NE, surf was very calm on an outgoing tide. Tons of mullet in the first gut, No sargassum at all. Couldn't ...more have asked for better conditions for a day trip to PINS! Didn't get the reds were after, but hooked into several sharks including this 53" BT! Additional species were bluefish, Spanish mackerel, ladyfish, stingray, and even a smooth puffer!
