Well the weather has finally started cooling down and the water temperatures have fallen as well and the false albacore bite is really doing well.  Large bait balls with plenty of albies feeding on them are all along the western beaches now and up around the Cape Lookout area.  There are bigger fish up around the Cape 15-20 lb albies.  The speckled trout bite continues to be very good along with red drum inshore.  The king mackerel bite is doing well on the near shore wrecks and reefs in the 60-70' depth of water.
