 The water keeps warming up and the fishing continues to get better.  The offshore fishing is especially picking up.  The wahoo bite is still on fire and we are now catching good numbers of yellowfin tuna along with blackfin tuna and dolphin.  Along the beaches there are false albacore and bluefish showing up in pretty good numbers.  Any day we should be seeing the arrival of the Hatteras size bluefish (5-12 lb).  If we can just get some of this wind to dissapear things will really fire off!
