There is less wind, it’s getting hotter and more humid. Summer must be here. The near constant wind this spring contributed to a tarpon season where I saw far less fish than last year, especially in June. I hope this is not a continuing trend.

So far the early summer grouper and snapper fishing has been very good and the mangrove snapper spawn on the Atlantic side is getting started.

Pictured below is Travis Baker and his sons after a great day of fishing. Travis is from Cary, NC and won the grand prize at the Saltwater Sportsman National Seminar Series event when it came to Cary. Lodging in Key West and a charter with me were part of the prize.

Also pictured is Nicole with a beautiful mutton snapper she caught with me on her first fishing trip ever. The mutton snapper was one of many fish Nicole caught that day with her friends from Idaho Loran and his wife Carmen.
