Cobia, Kings, Blackfin Tuna and Triggerfish, are here!!!!!!!!!!
The Pensacola Pier caught the first cobia of the year on the Emerald Coast and once again the crew of the Full Pull has caught the first cobia out of Destin.
Troll for Kings in the broken bottom, southeast rocks, and the pole spot; there are a number of blackfin tuna in the mix too.
Spanish are being caught trolling along the sandbar and around the pass. There are plenty of Bonita to catch.
Triggers opened on the 1st and have been very good. There are plenty of Mingo Snapper at depths ranging from 85-200 ft. Red grouper are biting on the east beach area around the Grayton Reef. Scamp on the deep edges 185-300ft.
Pompano is improving by the day, best bets on bait are sand fleas, fresh shrimp, and FishBites. Whiting are still doing ok and the numbers on sharks at night are very good.
Some good days on king mackerel and some are big fish too; a few reported close to 40lbs. Blackfin tuna are being caught but not as regular as the kings. Some pompano action along with whiting and sheepshead.
Sheepshead is best around the Destin Bridge and Jetties on live shrimp, fiddler crabs, and ghost shrimp. Trout are biting around the four-mile point, Sandestin, and Hogtown Bayou. Troll for Reds by the Midbay Bridge, Crab Island Channels and for smaller reds under the Destin bridge on live shrimp.
