Cobia, Bonito and Gag Grouper!


Cobia, doubles or even triples are common! Early May – mid June is our best window to target Cobia sight fishing, bottom fishing or chasing schools of bait (bait balls!)

Atlantic Bonito are not only super fun to catch on light tackle but, they are excellent table fare! Casting jigs or live bait are the methods we use to target these awesome fish on nearshore ocean trips.

Gag grouper season is short this year, May 1- June 15 with one per person, max 2 per boat… don’t forget we catch plenty of other great fish (including other types of grouper) in the areas we gag grouper fish.

Gray trout, bluefish, Spanish mackerel, Black Seabass etc are all additionally great nearshore ocean targets for spring/early summer.
