The fishing continues to be very good in the Atlantic Beach ,Cape Lookout area.  There are very good numbers of nice large Spanish mackerel and  bluefish along with  good numbers of Atlantic Bonito being caught both by trolling, casting and fly fishing.  The cobia bite is continuing even though we had a few days of hard Northeast winds that usually slow the cobia fishing up.  The majority of cobia are being caught by using live and dead bait on the bottom but there are still opportunities for sight casting to them around bait ballls and structure like bouys and sea turtles.  Large numbers of slot and over slot red drum are being caught both around the Cape Lookout shoals and back in the marshes.  The speckled trout fishing has also been pretty good with good numbers of larger specs being caught.  Offshore the dolphin and wahoo bite along with blackfin tuna and a few nice yellowfin tuna had been good.  Blue and white marlins are getting better each day the weather will let you get to them.
