Spent the last few days taking a "whipping" in the "TOWER" but it was worth it.
All Cobias were caught sight casting in 4 to 20 feet of gin clear 71 to 73 degree water.
We were casting 2 to 4 oz. bucktails.
Spanish Mackeral were caught trolling while looking for the Cobias.We used #1 and #2 planers ,2 and 4 oz. weights and #1 and #00 Clark Spoons and 50 pound mono leaders .
The bottomfish were caught using Squid strips and we were in 150 to 200 feet of water

And yes it was chopped up and and handed out to the 40 employees of the man who charterd the boat....plus sponsering a fish fry for the local Little League team his son plays on.......so please save the whine for the "cheese"
There should be a MAJOR CHARGE of Spanish coming your way.......their catching them at OI right now .....but I think the main body is still hanging around down here.
I've looked at enough of them the past few days that if you could put them on the QE2 ,..they'ed sink her......fried some of them bad boys up the other night....it was mighty fine
I went through the same area 2 hours prior and saw absoultyly nothing yesterday.......on the way back I go through the same area and there they are.....and I mean IN FORCE and NOT HUNGARY.........in 4 hours we saw over 40 fish ....had fantastic shots at bunchs,.....pulled off 6 fish.... caught 13 up to 87 pounds......had fish follow up hooked fish and we tried live Croakers,Spots,Bluefish,and Pinfish......we never did catch one on a live bait...go figure......everything was on bucktails.......absoultly ,hands down the most fish I've ever seen to come up with the least amount
