Run should get up anytime this month, Hardtails, Eels, Small Mingos, Cigar Minnows, Menhaden. Livelier they are the better.Alot of different baits will work.

Usually about March 20 through end of May hard..You can catch them through out the summer though on the beach if your lucky and on wrecks..Eels are the best..Jigs,Crabs, Hardheads and Pinfish are among the best..

There will be a few fish caught around the 15th to the 20th. But the big run usually starts in April. When cobia have lip lock throw an eel, if they are cooperative then they will hit just about anything alive and jigs as well.

Dont waste your gas until you see a few reports...May is much better than March 100% of the time...people are usually burnt out by then. The last 4 years off Okaloosa pier the first cobia was caught 3/28 4/3 3/26 4/3. There were fish caught much ealier than this but if the piers aren't getting them they are not here good enough to target multiple fish in one day...just my theorys. Best bait Eel/Mingo/Pinfish/Jig. The silver baits are good but you cant really catch them till mid April.

just charter me! i will be doing walk on charters the whole month of April. i charge 150 a person up to 4. i like to keep it small so each person gets more "tower time". if the fuel prices stay lower i will drop the price to 125 per person. i'll know closer to April.
