April is not only the beginning of spring, but the kick off of Cobia season for our area. Cobia, or Ling as some of the old school captains call them, migrate along our coast from the last week in March to about the middle of May. We site fish for them using live bait or jigs. The average size is between 35 and 65 pounds so these are a lot of fun to catch on light tackle. April is also one of the best months for speckled trout fishing. We're catching most of the trout on free lined live shrimp, soft plastics and mirrolures. There are several other species we catch this time of year, such as pompano, Spanish mackerel, bluefish, and flounder. With the mild weather and great fishing opportunities April is a great time to get out and do some inshore fishing.
