The dolphin have made their annual showing and limit catches of 20 lb. gaffers are not uncommon. Wahoo and blackfin are here as well. Billfish of all shapes and sizes are waiting a mere 50 miles from the dock and over the next month sailfish can be caught within sight of the beach.
Cobia migrate along the coast feeding on the large bait balls of menhadden, and move inside of the barrier islands to feed and spawn. This offers sight casting and live linning for cobia exceeding 90 lbs !! They are just starting to show up and should get thicker over the next couple weeks. I am offering cobia trips for only 500 bucks a day due to the proximity of the fishing. We often catch within 50 yards of the beach, making these trips doable in almost any weather. Don't miss out on this rare fishery.
As always, grouper are hungry and waiting offshore. Amberjacks, almacos, african pompano, king mackeral, and many other species are stacked on the offshore live bottom areas along with many different species of grouper waiting for you to drop a jig. Triggerfish to 8 lbs are common on the deep water corals, and are in my opinion the finest table fare in the ocean. Call and book a date for a bottom fisherman's dream trip.
Combo trips are a favorite. Troll the morning , load up on mahi, tuna and wahoo, then go to the jig and bottom rigs and top off the cooler with groupers, triggers, snappers, ect. Lets go get them ! Check out the website for rates and specials. www.procastinatorsportfishing.com
