The Anticipation with Capt. Earl Whitfield backed in with a limit of red snapper and a wahoo. It was a first time outing for the Larrison's from Hot Springs, Ark.

It's hard to tell which has been hotter this week — the 90 degree temperatures or the red-hot fishing.

Most anglers on the docks would probably say both.

"It's been good weather and good fishing," the last couple of days, said Capt. Stan Phillips of the Sea Winder Thursday afternoon as he stepped off the boat.

And the proof was in the sun above and the fish on the racks. His group of anglers from St. Louis, Mo., hauled in a king mackerel, lane snapper, black snapper and a limit of red snapper.

Ohio anglers on the Windwalker II with Capt. Bernie LeFebvre loaded the racks with red snapper and black snapper.

Capt. Jason Mikel backed in on the Backlash Thursday with a limit of red snapper and a few bonito, while the Silver Hook with Capt. Caleb Brown had red snapper and king mackerel on the boards.

Right around noon Capt. Robert Hill on the Twilight and his group from Kentucky came in with a limit of red snapper, one barracuda and a king mackerel.
