Well we had a good day fishing yesterday.  All the lagre Spanish mackerel you cared to cast or troll to early in the morning  at Beaufort Inlet on the incoming tide.  Looked for bait first thing for cobia fishing with no luck.  Set up with bait left over from day before that got us a 42 inch cobia that we tagged and released Monday.  Nothing but large sharks on the bottom, but kept us busy.  Started looking for cobia when the sun came out and got very lucky and found a pod of menhaden and there was a cobia in it.  We caught a 39 lb cobia using a white bucktail.  Saw one other free swimming but it was traveling too fast to get back on it.  Yesterday boats fishing offshore had good catches of gaffer dolphin, blackfin and yelowfin tuna and wahoo.
