The waters are full of life off the shores of Capt Hiram's. Spring is here and with spring comes Cobia, Dolphin and Wahoo. Pods of bait are all over the place, from just off the beaches to the offshore reefs.
If your looking for Cobia, first try the beach. Look for Rays; the Cobia will be swiming with the Rays or just under them. You will also find them on the offshore reefs. If you're bottom fishing the reefs, Cobia will follow hooked fish up to the surface; be sure to have a rod and a bait ready when they come up to the boat.
Fishing for the Dolphin; look for color changes, rips and weedlines. And keep an eye on those birds, they can lead you right to the fish.
Don't forget to mark your calendars for the SISA 39th Annual 2011 Spring Fling Tournament, April 30th (Capt's Meeting on April 29th) always a great time!
That's all for now.... Capt Michael Barkley
