Fishing has been pretty good for Spanish Mackerel along the beaches.  Some of the larger Spanish are being caught using live bait around some of the artificial reefs like AR 315 and AR285 on the east side of the shaols.  There are still lots of bluefish up around the Cape Lookout shoals.  The king mackerel bite has been good around dome of the artificial reefs as well.  Also out around some of the deeper spots in 60 to 70 feet of water. Amberjack are also hanging around the deeper water reefs in good numbers.  Shark fishing continues to be very good just along the beaches and inside the inlets.  Offshore there has been a very good dolphin bite and wahoo bite along with good numbers of blue marlin.
