Beaufort (SC) Inshore Fishing Report – Updated May 5

-- As used to be typical for May in the Beaufort area, the big story right now involves the inshore cobia fishery.  However, while Bay Street Outfitters (843-524-5250) reports that although they have seen early signs of inshore cobia, right now the story isn’t about the fish they are seeing or catching.  New regulations concerning the cobia fishery (read the full regs here) limit the number of cobia that ca ...
