Gulfstream Charter...Maybe Not

Once on the fishing grounds, it didn't take long for the action to start. Lost the first couple strikes and then had some good hook-ups that produced a good class of fish over the rail. There were times when the bite would slow but action was good enough to keep us there until we decided we needed to beat the rain clouds that were forming back to shore. We came close but ran into a downpour about a 1/2 mile from the marina. With foul weather gear on we fileted and steaked a little over 40 pounds of fresh King and Spanish Mackeral for our guests.
Thanks to our guests, the Thompson family (Rusty, Kellie, Austin and Rusty's sister Carol), for hanging tough today and making the best of the weather. It was a blast.
