Please join us for another fun weekend of fishing! We are going to be fishing for salt-water species like false albacore, bluefish, redfish, seatrout, sharks and spanish mackerel in the Atlantic Ocean and its local tributaries. Our Chief Fishing Officer, Bobby Brewer, will give a talk on Friday evening about fishing in the local area (he guides there). For your convenience, there is a block of rooms reserved at the Bask Hotel for "FFI." We recommend getting a guide for this trip, but surf fishing is also very good in the area. There are some available guides listed below, but this is a busy time of the year, so don't wait to book one. We look forward to seeing you all on this fun trip! Don't be afraid to call or email us if you want to find a buddy to share a guide or need help with anything.
