Fishing around the Crystal Coast has been doing pretty good lately.  We have been having some light winds that has been allowing anglers to cover more of the ocean to check out the fishing.  There are still plenty of Spanish mackerel around and bluefish.  The Cape Lookout shoals is a good place to start looking for both of these species.  For some of the larger Spanish I would check out some of the artificial reefs.  They have been holding some nice size Spanish.  The king mackerel bite continues to be pretty good as well.  Offshore and on the eastside of the Cape Lookout shoals in and around 60 feet of water is a good place to look for the kings.  We are starting to see a scattering of false albacore starting to make a showing.  Hopefully this will continue and we will have a great fall for these hard fighting fish.  Offshore the wahoo bite continues mixed with a few dolphin still and a few sailfish and white marlin.  The offshore bottom fishing has been very good as well.  The Pamlico Sound is starting to heat up for the old drum and will continue through the first of October.
