Default Cobia or Spanish Mackerel

Has anyone seen these fish migrating up the gulf coast yet? Just curious and trying to plan time to fish!

Havn't been out this year yet, but I caught a spanish mackerel back in nov. off of grand isle. The weather has been in the 70's here for a couple of weeks and I was going to go tommorow but the winds will be up, maybe next week.

The spanish have been reported outside of Tampa Bay, busting up bait schools.

Evidently the water temp has gotten closer to 70 than I had imagined..
