I live up in the panhandle, in the Destin, FWB area. Anyone who fishes up here they know this time of the year is Cobia Mania, but the fishing now is not what it use to be. The grade of Fish and the amount seen is way down. I don't know if it has to do with the oil spill or over fishing. But the days of seeing multiple wads of fish is over. I have fished all day multiple days and not seen one fish. That was unheard of a just a few years back. Its sad to say but they need to shut it down. We need to get the numbers back to where they were. They use catch fish in 90's out here haven't seen one of those in a long time caught off the beach.
