We saw redfish, but didn’t hook up. • In 2016, there were 10 anglers. Ladyfish and jacks were the most caught species. Whiting, redfish, bluefish, spanish mackerel, trout were also brought to hand.

By Friday afternoon, all the beds were filled, as well as the couches and recliner. The original plan was to go over to Stingeree for dinner Thursday and Friday night. That turned out to be too hard to do. The crowds at the eatery were extremely long due to spring break, so we opted to feed ourselves. Fish were caught but Daniel Tatum and his son cleaned up on the Red Fish on Saturday. MGM, Clousers, and redfish cracks caught fish.
