Good afternoon, heading in from a private friends and family charter 3/4 day. We had picture-perfect weather at Santa Rosa Island. We primarily fished in shallow water we had a lot of current and a lot of first-timers but everything worked out very well. We had a good mix of rockfish and really nice Whitefish. Our sister Boat the Coral Sea called us into some game fish at the very end of the day we were able to get a few boiling around the boat, but the fish were reluctant to eat anything with a hook in it. We gave it our last hour in hopes of catching a few more bottom fish while on the anchor. Our 25 anglers caught: 105 rockfish, 155 whitefish, 12 lingcod, and 1 sheephead.

We are 1/2 day fishing Monday-Wednesday, lots of room, Bass are biting so are the Rockfish.

Good afternoon, heading in from a nice 1/2 day. We primarily stayed shallow looking for bass and other surface fish, caught only a few legals. We did hook a legal white Seabass but lost it just out of gaff range. We would’ve stayed longer but the mackerel got completely out of hand so we spent our last hour looking for bottom fish. Our 15 anglers caught 33 rockfish 27 whitefish 2 calico 40 released 3 sand bass 1 sheephead

We need a few more reservations for Wednesday’s 1/2 day to go. Thursday’s 3/4 day is a go, friday has a light load too. Weather looks good for both days.
