We left at 8:30 this morning which is later than usual as the wind was suppose to (and did) lay down as the sun rose higher in the sky. We found some beautiful menhaden at one of our usual spots and headed out of the inlet.

Because the SW wind had been blowing most of the week and now it was from the west, we felt Surf City ledges was the best spot to start. We put out four lines and began to troll. We were fishing with friends in three other boats. There were probably 3 or 4 others in the vicinity too.

Of our four boats, 3 of us landed fish. We boated 2 kings, a 19 pounder and one that went almost 24 pounds. Our friends on the "Island Time" landed 4 and was spooled by a fifth that they lost. Johnny and his gang caught at two nice kings and 2 HUGE Red drum - we estimated them at over 40 pounds each. They hit menhaden on the king rigs.



As noted above he kings are still on the beach which is later than usual. The water temp. was 76 degrees! However with the cooler weather coming in this week, I'd look for them to move to the mouth of the inlet later this week then start their move to deeper water by next week-end or so.

Tight lines!
