Hopefully this is the beginning of a good wave of fish.  There have been a lot of little cobia around, usually that happens at the end of the run after the bigger fish move through.   I hope instead we are seeing signs of a really good year clase of young cobia vs the end of the run.   With an 80 pounder caught yesterday, and with what I saw today, along with some of the other guides, this is far from over. 

Today it was all sight casting, we started with a 48 pounder and quickly saw another keeper that will not make it any futher north in its migration.  With those two in the box the pressure was off and we got plenty of practice casting at singles and pairs paddling along on the surface, most of those were "keepers" with some as big as the one in the box.   I did not see any bait balls, but those who did see
them also saw a few cobia.   Other guides were duplicating my success about 20 miles in the opposite direction. 

All in all, things look pretty good for  a decent seasaon.....just got to hold on to this good weather and keep 'em coming.
