Trip #4 May 21-24

Hello Anglers,

After a long day of stopping on large sized schools with little to no reaction we were able to locate some biting fish after the sun went down. The fish grade ranged from 30- 200 pounds with the majority being 120-200. Although not wide open by any means a well-placed jig and a little luck resulted in some trophy fish for our anglers.

Trip #3 May 17-19 Kyle Landford Charter

Good Afternoon Anglers!

Kyle Landford’s Charter set out on Friday afternoon, eager for some action. After a long night with no schools in sight, we finally spotted one at 5 a.m. There had been promising opportunities before we arrived, and we encountered several good schools throughout the night. It was all about being in the right place at the right time. Just before sunrise, we had an excellent chance and landed a 100-pounder.
