Time to make Hay Suns Out
29 May 2016

Well May is about over and the 100 days of summer have already began. Advance bookings are record high and the appearance of a great summer is taking shape. My friends in the accommodations sector said their June , July and Aug booking are just as strong. The fishing has been really good so far this spring and thanks to the relentless efforts of the Charter Fishermans Assoc and support from the federally permitted charter for hire fleet gulf wide our industry will be able to get saltwater anglers out into the Gulf of Mexico for a 46 day red snapper season up from 44 days last year. Also the CFA was instrumental in getting Gag Grouper rot open June 1 st at the same time red snapper opens. Red Snapper season ends Mid night July 16 th but Gag Grouper will remain open until Dec 31 st. Amberjacks are open until June 1 st but will reopen Aug 1 st so we have some good over Lapp on big fish you can catch all summer long. We have a bout 6-8 days open in June and about 12-14 in July so you better hurry and book you a trip. It’s either call now and get ready to go fishing or get sent to the penalty box for waiting too long and have to go shopping with the girls instead. Let’s Go Fishing !
