  • Jolly Mon King Classic rescheduled

    The 2012 Jolly Mon King Classic is going to be rescheduled for June 22-24.
    The original dates of June 15-17 are being postponed because of a combination of a poor weather forecast from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and the current status of the king mackerel fishery.
    This is the first time in the event’s 18-year history that dates will be postponed. However, Mother Nature reigns supreme and we all must answer to her wishes.

  • Inshore fishing now in a hot-water pattern

    With daytime temperatures in the 80s and water temperatures in the high 70s, inshore fishing is still firmly in a hot-water pattern with a lot of fish hitting on the edge of the day and nothing much happening in between.
    This type of cycle can fool some visitors into thinking there is not a fish in the ocean because they aren’t going to see much caught while people are most active between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. That doesn’t mean the fish aren’t there, though, and early morning and evening anglers are still enjoying some nice action.
