Whiting, flounder are biting
This just in ... Timmy Blount (The Bluff Master) and his mother, Joyce King, caught a bunch of sheephead. Hot off the line the fishing line that is. - photo by Photo provided.

This week in the great outdoors:
Hello, everyone out there in the coastal area, I hope you are doing your best to stay cool in this hot summertime weather we are having.
The saltwater fishing reports are slow coming in, but I expect things to pick up real soon. However, things are running hot on Fort Stewart.

This week, the photo is of a nice mess of brim caught by a friend of mine, Mr. Cash Poythress, and his bride last weekend. Mr. Cash said they sure were tasty. I am glad he and his wife had good day on the water.

I have heard the whiting are biting well, and a few flounder have been caught. I am planning to get up early Saturday to try and beat the heat and wet ahook for a while. Hopefully, I will have some luck.
Well, friends, with the weather being so hot, I thought I would throw out another cool recipe. Tasty and healthy as well.

Shrimp, cucumber and mango salad

This is what you will need:
3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons sugar
6 tablespoons Dijon mustard
6 tablespoons of my favorite mayo, good old Dukes
4 large pickling cucumbers, about 2 cups, cut into ½-inch cubes
1 large mango, peeled and pitted, cut into ½-inch cubes, about 2 cups as well
1 pound cooked medium shrimp
3 tablespoons chopped dill
A bottle of original Tabasco

Mix vinegar and sugar in a small bowl until sugar dissolves. Whisk in mustard and mayo. Cover and chill.
Combine cucumbers, mango, shrimp and dill in large bowl. Pour dressing on after a good chill; toss to coat. Season with salt and pepper and

Tabasco. Arrange lettuce on plates and top with the salad.
Head down to the cellar or the fridge and grab a nice Chardonnay, call up a few friends and enjoy the afternoon.
Well that`s a wrap for this week. Remember what Old Tight-Line always said. Get out there and go fishing and if you do, remember to keep a tight line.

Living the tight-line life on the coast, Tight-Line Jr.
