The June Summer Bite is on!

Before we get to the latest reports, we at Coletta Sportfishing want to take a moment to pause to honor the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings in Normandy, France that commenced on June 6, 1944. So many young men sacrificed everything to defeat tyranny and to defend freedom. We owe so very much to those who came ashore to fight on those beaches; who parachuted behind the German lines, to fight alone and in the dark; who flew countless missions to maintain control of the skies over France; and so many more.
