Check out the first "Catch of the Week". This is Kale Martin from Gateway, Fla with a gorgeous Skipjack Tuna caught while on vacation in Costa Rica. Kale said he fought the fish for 10 minutes before quickly posing for this picture and then releasing the fish back in the water.

If you are heading out on the water today the forecast looks great. The winds will start east before turning west once the sea breeze kicks in this afternoon. Seas 2 feet or less with a light chop expected on the inland waters. The latest readings have the water temperature in the Gulf of Mexico in the upper 80s. Keep an eye to the sky in the afternoon as we will see a 30-40% chance of afternoon showers and storms in the afternoon between 5-8PM.
