Written on: June 17th, 2016 in Fishing Report

Happy Friday!!!!

When we start seeing tuna and mako everyday, it makes everyday happy! Check out some of the catches brought in yesterday.

Also, if you would like to try your hand at landing fish like these, give us a call to book a Charter trip at 302-227-3071 and ask for Carolyn. We have many great charters that can take you back bay fishing or go offshore for the big ones.
