Gonna be fishing in Destin with some family this Saturday if the weather allows it. I mostly fish inshore (although I haven't been out in a LOOONG time), so I've mostly got inshore gear with the exception of a couple cheap walmart surf rods. I picked up an Ugly Stick GX2 (7' Medium action) for a Penn Fierce 3000 I've had laying around, and spooled up some 15lb braid. I'm not sure where exactly we'll be fishing or how far out we're going, but I do know my uncle is planning to troll for cobia if they're still around. Just got a couple questions:

1) What's running this time of year that I could target with my current setup?

2) Is my setup ok, or should I change it up any?

Thanks for any input!

I will get to Pensacola tomorrow and fish through Friday, mostly near shore trolling. I'll get you a report, but I expect to catch Spanish, kings, Bonita and maybe jack crevalle trolling.

Cobia are typically not caught trolling, usually by idling up and down the coast just offshore and sight casting at them when seen with a cobia jig or live bait. Quite a few are also caught while bottom fishing over reefs or wrecks.

Shark fishing was good, but trolling was not good the whole time I was here. Bottom fishing near wrecks produced some small fish, but not the best fishing this week.
