Well folks, I wish that I had a better forecast, but due to the continuous hard NE winds that we have been having the fishing has slowed up a good bit, especially for the cobia.  There are still good numbers of Spanish mackerel and bluefish and a few cobia around.  Hopefully we will get a chnge in the winds in both direction and velocity.  The offshore fishing has been very good for dolphin some blackfin tuna wahoo and billfish, when the winds will let you get out.  Hoping for calmer winds and slighter seas in the near future.
