King mackerel have showed up, flat lining and trolling live or fresh dead baits has worked the best.
A few cobia have been picked off the local wrecks and everyone and their brother is running the beach getting eye strain scanning the horizon looking for them. Better reports from the west still but some fish are getting caught locally.
Real good bite on pompano and spanish. Also there were some whiting reported but they have been small, and jack crevalle are cruising the bar hitting just about anything that moves.
The trout and redfish bite was a little slow during this last full moon, assuming you were fishing during the day. Probably did some feeding at night and were harder to get a strike out of during the day. The two tides per day didn't help either. Sheep head have slowed a bit too, still some around but not gangbusters like it was. Plenty of spanish in the bay, trolling for them in about fifteen feet of water just off the shipping channels has worked well. Lots of mangrove snapper and black sea bass around the pass and bridges but most were too small for most people to want to keep.
