"Also the Redfish and Black Drum have been good lately, mainly using live or dead shrimp, I am open all of the rest January and February right now so I could definitely use some trips!" -Captain Dillon
"Float trips are doing well, and wade trips are also! It's pretty cold most days, but if you can bare the cold you can catch good fish. Winter time is for the more serious anglers who don't mind freezing all day just to catch one or two big fish instead of a hundred small ones."-Noah
