Capt. Kevin Walton reports the spring kingfish are here. Walton and friends found them at the “Betty Rose” a local wreck approximately one mile south of the South County Reef.
A Great White shark was caught this week in the Gulf of Mexico off John’s Pass. Angler Fab Marchese, fishing with Capt. Joe Maisano, caught and released a 16-18 foot Great White weighing an estimated 2,500 and 3,000 pounds.
St. Patrick’s Day is a good bench mark for the start of the kingfish run and it looks like the kings may be right on schedule.
