Thursday is the last day of red snapper season this year and it is expected that a large number of boats, both private and charter, will be on the water. The forecasts are calling for light winds and seas with slight chances of rain.

Wednesday, the Gulf was full of thunderstorms and boats heading out early were dodging the storms until around noon. A few returned to dock while others, especially the larger vessels, continued on their way.

Capt Joe. The new free lighted two mile TC tee head on the north side of TC dike is open for visitors. All remains is poring a handicap ramp. Talked to one of the workers who said he saw several large Specks caught just after sun up.
