Well the weather has be cooperating fairly well here lately, but it looks like we are going to be in for some windy weather for the next 3 days.  A cold front that we badly need is coming in and hopefully drop both the air and water temperatures.  There are very good numbers of false albacore around, but they have been very picky on what they will eat.  There are good numbers of large 2-5 lb bluefish and Spanish mackerel out on the Cape Lookout shoals.  Plenty of sharks around as well as some of the old red drum.  The king mackerel bite has been doing pretty good and picking up.  The wahoo fishing is still very dependable with some very nice wahoo being caught in the gulfstream.  Small red drum and speckled trout are doing welll in the marsh and the 2-5 lb gray trout are on many of the inshore artificial reefs.
