Sorry for the delay posting a report. Fishing had been a little slow and really wasn't much to report but things seem to be picking up. Fishing over the last few weeks has been good, some days, Very Good! Summer is finally here. Seas have calmed, cold weather is gone, fish are showing up....Life is Good. Just got word and a picture from Capt Gray that he landed a 165 yellowfin today. It was the only bite of the day on tuna, talk about making it count. Plenty of storms out today. Capt Mitch got on the fish but was forced out by storms. He was able to pick up a couple of tuna and a couple of dolphin before leaving, a quick limit of red snapper on the way back to the dock. Both boats are fishing tomorrow so hope they are able to stay on the fish, think the forecast is clear of rain tomorrow. Every day last week was blown out for us. The week before was good fishing though. Gray and Mitch were able to catch some hooters, dolphin, tuna and amberjack. Gray got on them good one day, caught 7 good yellowfin and a limit of jacks on the way back. He was all pumped up because he had an overnight trip the next day. The difference a day makes......fishing was easy on the day trip, hard on the overnighter. Ended the 24 hour trip with 5 yellowfin. Not bad at all but he hoped it would be better. A few days before all of this, Mitch caught 9 good yellowfin and 2 dolphin. Several other days have been good as well. Lot of days with 4-5 tuna, 2-4 dolphin and snapper or jacks. About 3-4 weeks ago, Capt Andy and I put it on some nice late season wahoo. It was sloppy weather but the fishing was good. Went back the next day, couldn't buy a wahoo bite. Fishing was hard that day, both boats struggled til the end of the day. I was able to load the boat with jumbo blacks and Mitch landed a few blacks and then spent the next 2 hours fighting a mean yellowfin. Think the fish went about 140. Check out this link, its a video Aaron shot on Mitch's boat about a month ago. http://youtu.be/IM7gi3PCBuI They had a good time, landed some good fish. Aaron did a good job editing the video, think you will enjoy! Snapper season will be open til June 25th Amberjack will open back up August 1st. Plenty of big Mangrove snapper around. Hopefully I can write another report in the next few days to fill you in on the next few days of fishing. Be safe out there.... Books are starting to fill pretty good but we have some open days to fish in June and July. Even a few weekend dates here and there. Be sure to check the site and blog for info, reports, pictures and who knows what else. Capt Josh Howard 225-572-7408 email@example.com www.deepsouthcharters.com deepsouthcharters.blogspot.com

Seems the wahoo bite has turned on really hard over the last 2 days and will prob be on for the next 2-3 days. If you ever wanted wahoo, this may be your best shot. I am open to fish Tuesday and Thursday for wahoo. I will fish Wednesday and post pictures of what you could have caught. Friend of mine hit them today and is already back at the dock, not even noon yet! If you want to go, we have the following days open. Tuesday, Thursday, Sunday and then Next Tuesday! I believe all days will be good for wahoo, we are pushing up on the new moon now!!!! Capt Josh Howard 225-572-7408 firstname.lastname@example.org www.deepsouthcharters.com
Feels damn good to be back on the water every week! The fishing is not as consistent as I would like to see it but its getting better every day! I cant seem to catch a wahoo this year either and that has me in a bad mood but most people say I stay in a bad mood so i guess everything is normal!

This year the duck season was less than par so I have been on the water a little more in January this year. We really havent had any outstanding trips except for the last trip on Sunday! We fished a few trips last week, fishing hard for wahoo on Friday and Saturday with no hooters to show, decide to go hunting and they catch them the following three days! Just my luck!

Smart phones are changing everything! For a business owner, they are an excellent tool to use to stay In touch, check email and even advertise! This is my first blog report from my phone and hope many more are to follow! The only problem is, I can't figure out how to post pics on here from my phone! This past Saturday, Brandon and I were part of a 6 boat trip out of Venice marina! We had high hopes for wahoo, they are just starting to show up and we were ready! Plenty of diving baits rigged with wire! A few live bait rigs, a bait well full of live bait! We were ready! The only problem is, the wahoo were not!! We pulled baits about half of the day with not much to show! Landed one nice Blackfin an released a few jacks! Spent the other half putting some meat in the box! A limit of amberjack, another Blackfin and two scamps, one of which went 22 pounds! Very nice scamp! Not the day we had hoped for, but, that's a good bit Of meat! The customers were happy and believe it or not, out of the 6 boat crew, the Deja Vu finished up as top boat! It was a tough day for all! Early January we don't expect too much! Same thing every year! We will start to have some good wahoo trips and then things pick up pretty quick!! I know of a couple of good hooter trips so far, neither from my boat! Haha. It was nice to be on the water! We will be back at it this Friday and Saturday ! Hope it will be game on! See you out there!! Capt Josh Howard

The trip to San Antonio was awesome! Andrew invited me out to make the hunt and I jumped on it! I shot a ton of video while on the trip but it may take a while to get it all edited. We arived at the 4R Ranch Lodge on Friday evening. Got settled in and we were scheduled to make our first quail hunt of the trip that day but rain held us to the lodge. Not that it was a problem, Jills cooking was enough to keep us happy in the comfatable lodge with the horseshoe couch and flatscreen TV. We did make a ride thru the ranch to check for axis. We surpised a big hog at a feeder and was able to get a shot! He didnt run far!!
