On the piers they are catching lots of Hatteras Blues in the 10 to 15 LB range along with Spots, Croakers and Sea Mullets.
The Cobia bite has been red hot around the cape and back of Shack ford Banks. I hooked A huge Cobia on a flounder Rig back of Shack but when he came up out of the water he broke my 12 lb pound test line. I did catch some nice Flounder in the 19 to 20 inch range drifting with Mud Minnows in the channel going toward the back side of Beaufort .
In the Surf big Blues –Spots –Flounder –Croakers —and Sharks.
Off shore Big Dolphin—Wahoo—-Tuna—–Sale Fish.
Just off shore the Spanish bite is good in the inlets and up and down the beaches. The Kings are showing up the big ones are being caught out around the Cape and in the Shipping channel.
