Current Fishing Report and Photo Gallery


Hey folks, here are the photos you requested from our Monday, Oct. 10th charter of Tuna Fever with Capt. Billy Maxwell. We had a blast! Billy worked hard to put us onto some great fish, and his mate Charlie worked his butt off for us. 549 pounds of Tuna! It was the first time doing any off-shore fishing for three of our group, and Billy converted em, for sure. They will be coming back again, as will I. All of us were really blown away by the pod of Pilot Whales that accompanied us for part of the day. If it wasn't for the heathens in the fishing boat, it would have almost been a spiritual experience!!
