spawning stripers and cobia

The stripers have not been cooperative the past couple of days, Justin has only caught about 100  on his last two trips combined......slow for the Roanoke, but a great day on the water in most places.
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:
