Keeper season is OVER, cobia have arrived

If you want to keep some fish, better book a day of cobia fishing. They have arrived, as last year, a little ahead of schedule. Heard that one boat saw 80+ fish today. I'll be checking that out first hand this week if the weather is nice.

The crowds will be leaving the Roanoke now that keeper season is over. It was a zoo out there all week this week. Combined with dropping water, the fish seemed to be in a different place each day, but no worries, we got ours and we often got them well out of the crowds. A couple of hours down the river really makes you appreciate catching those bigger fish up in the fast water. Topwater bite is firing off and the flies are outfishing bait.

I am open Monday afternoon, all day Tuesday and Wednesday morning.
Willing to fish the Roanoke or run a cobia trip on Tuesday...
