spawning stripers and cobia
After this full moon, they should go back on the bite, but with dropping water levels, their trip down river is not far away.
Meanwhile on the coast, we are picking away at the cobia, seeing one for about every 10 miles of looking, so it ain't red hot but we've been getting a couple of keepers each day. Not killing them, but tagging with transmitters and $200 red tags, then letting them go. Check it out:

Report from the beach
No cobia yesterday for me, did get a little guy a couple of days ago on a short trip.
We did catch a box full of fish yesterday and at least 10 different species:
gag grouper, black sea bass, calico bass, bluefish, spanish and king mackeral, a variety of sharks and some bonafide gigantic American red snappas.
Not sure if I posted this pic from the Roanoke, it's been a couple of weeks, so maybe the pain has eased.

top water and fly openings
I have yet to put a minna on a hook and I do not plan to fix my live well. Today, for 3 hours, by ourselves we watched stripers terrorize shad on the surface. Quite the show, the stripers would run them on the shoreline to 5 waiting blue herons. Epic topwater and fly. If anyone is interested in that, I am avaialble for a few days this week for 3/4 days for $600. if the topwater doesn't happen, the fly rod bite is truly incredible with expectations of a bite almost every cast.

2nd place, bears, trout and stripers
Some pics of my trip to the mountains and me stalking a bear. Trout in the swimming hole and yes, there are plenty of stripers, the best of it is on the fly.
