Reported by Stan Cobb at Greentop Hunting & Fishing
Cobia are becoming heavy inside the bay. Anglers are catching them by chumming and sight casting. There have been fish up to 75 lbs weighed in this week. While chasing the Cobia, Red Drum are being spotted, so some of the boaters are hooking up with both at the same time. Those targeting the Drum are doing well, and many are still catching Black Drum. Another species that is biting well now is the Sheepshead. There have been several 10 lbers caught, and a few 12's caught also. The Sheepshead are being caught from the tunnel structures. Big Flounder have been caught better this past week, with a report of an 11- 1/2 lber even being caught. Spadefish are being caught at the Chesapeake Light Tower, but catches inside the bay have been slow. It shouldn't be long till quality Spades are being boated at the tunnel structures. Water temps at the tunnel are around 77 degrees. Reports of Speckled Trout have been very limited, but a 5 lber was reported from an Eastern Shore tackle shop this week. The offshore Fleets are reporting great catches of Yellowfin Tuna, Big Eye Tuna, and Mahi. Reports of some Sailfish surfaced this week also. Blueline Tilefish are biting well for those targeting them in the deeper waters of the Canyon. The Outer Banks surf is producing Sea Mullet, Bluefish, Pompano and Puppy Drum. The piers are reporting the same catches, along with Spanish Mackerel.
