We have had a off and on again cooler weather snaps the last week or so which had slowed the water temperatures from rising just a little bit.  But the fishing continues to be good.  there have been good catches of Atlantic Bonito as well as bluefish around some of the artificail reefs and the Cape Lookout shoals.  Any day the cobia should be making a showing along the coast. There have also been some false albacore on the eastside of the Cape Lookout shoals.  Red drum are still being caught back in the marshes as well as some speckled trout.  Farther offshore there have been yellowfin and blackfin tuna as well as some wahoo and the dolphin are starting to show up.
