King Mackerel and Cobia continue to feed under the light of the full moon in May. The fish have been feeding close to the bottom during the first few hours then move toward the surface later in the evening. Anglers “jigging” their baits lightly have been producing the most hits. King Mackerel have been averaging 10 pounds with quite a few fish in the 15 to 20 pound range also coming aboard. Kings over the 30 pound mark have been coming aboard through the week on previous night trips. Most of the Cobia have been feeding just before dark with a few smaller fish feeding about an hour past sunset.
Three Black-fin Tuna were the prized catches during the full moon along with plenty of kingfish and few other unknown super-charged predators that taxed both tackle and anglers alike, making it nearly impossible to elude the sharks.
Day-time trips are still producing King Mackerel, False Albacore, Snapper, Cobia and Rainbow Runners. The Bull Sharks are still giving anglers a show at boat-side, sometimes with as many as several individuals circling the boat looking for a bonito handout.
