Fishing around  and off the beaches has been slowed up by all the hot weather and high winds that we have been experiencing.  There are some Spanish Mackerel and King Mackerel around .  The larger Spanish are being caught on live bait as are the king mackerel.  The kings have been out in the 60 - 70 foot water around structure.  A downrigger is a must this time of year.  Most of your bites will come off the sown rigger deep.  The other day we had a good king mackerel trip fishing in 70 ft of water, and all of our bites came at 55 ft on the downrigger. Offshore there are still some wahoo and dolphin and sailfish with a few marling still around.  It is getting time for the old drum to be showing up in good numbers in the Pamlico.  Thery are not yet there, in big numbers but should be showing up in force in the next week or so.
