Scallops & early morning trips for Speckled Trout & Redfish continue to be very productive

August 19, 2008

Good news, the water and air temps should be decreasing soon, now if I can manage to leave the dock by 6 A.M., we will have it made. Saltwater Offshore: On a recent trip out to one of the shipwrecks, several small Grouper (just under […]
