Ha, no. The typical routine is get on the edge of the second sand bar and start looking for them swimming along the beach. With every other swinging dick on the gulf coast. In anything that floats. Preferably with someone in a tower of crows nest. Any piece of structure or wreck or whatever should be thoroughly explored.

It's a sight fishery. Jigs, live eels, pinfish, catfish.

That being said, I have had shit luck doing it that way. All of mine have been on wrecks while bottom fishing.

Didn't most of the dogwoods get wiped out by disease? I lost the 2 in my yard 2 years ago now I have no idea when to go turkey hunting or crappie fishing.

That's a good summary.

Been fishing and diving Destin since 1985, and I can tell you that we have resident Cobia all year round. They stay on inshore reefs and wrecks mostly. But like mentioned above the big dogs will be through when the migrating masses are sight fished for along the beaches. Tight lines and keep fishing my friends. The first to second week normally is the peak run but changes some with weather pattern differences. Sometime around March 15th the first fish is caught in the migration pattern. Give or take a little time.
