  • TS Debby slows fishing

    This past week or so, the Gulf has been filled with warm waters making the search for the keepers a little more difficult. From Steinhatchee to Cedar Key reports have been that the Red Snapper have been scattered.
    Capt. Steve Hart with Legal Limits Charters said his best luck had been around 48-50’ of water. Gag Grouper, which come into season on July 1 seem to go for live bait, so stick with the frozen to increase your chances to pull up Red Snapper and Red Grouper.

    Every year the rodeo is different: different contestants, different livestock and different entertainment.
    We are always glad to see our regular favorite cowboys and cowgirls return to Williston for the Annual Rodeo, but it is never the same.
    A common question is, “What can we expect when we come to the Rodeo?''
     The answer is “Expect the unexpected!”
