Cobia began filtering through Hatteras Inlet today and inshore anglers rook advantage of the situation. Some citation Drum were caught as well as sea Mullet, and Bluefish. It was somewhat choppy but anglers made the best of it! The Billfish bite was on offshore and three Blue Marlin and one Sailfish were released by our fleet. The meat fish bite was slower with fair catches of Dolphin and a few Tuna (Blackfin and Yellowfin). Please don't listen to the weather report - the weather has been beautiful and sunny, with little rain. Come on down and enjoy a day of fishing and fun in the sun!
