We have a beautiful weekend on tap. It’s 70 and in the low 70′s. There’s also some fun events coming up this weekend and next. Thought I’d share them with you in case you want to come down and share the fun and of course stay with us!
Fish are biting to. Had the first Spots caught on Monday. The piers are catching sea mullet, pig fish, black drum, snapper & chopper blues. Inside waters have a lively bite of speckled trout being caught on pink Betts Halo-Shad. A few flounder have begun to bite as well. On our pier we still have the blow fish, pinfish and blues biting. Stone crabs have moved in the crab pot our guest have put out.
Lots of folks riding bikes. We’ve had a couple of guests with canoes stay with us this week. They’ve enjoyed exploring all the hidden coves in the sound. That seems it would be a lot of fun but I don’t swim and I just see me in the middle of the sound splashing around and screaming for all I’m worth…lol
Here’s a couple of events for you to consider visiting.
