Sept (what to expect)

Taking a long weekend trip to obx sept15-19. Was wondering what to expect as far as water temps, species caught etc. hoping to get into some blues, Spanish, maybe a big red drum. Usually fish in June so sept is new to me. Any advice on drum rig setups? I've heard bottom rug with single hook and cut mullet works. Also if anyone has tips on bottom fishing for Cobia. I seen some posts about it. Thanks for all the help. Tight lines and God bless.

Generally its pretty late in the year to be catching Kings or Cobia. But fish the conditions. Water temp will depend on wind direction. If the wind is NE or E and the water is warm and clear, try for a King. On September 19th last year I hung two Kings from a pier and saw a Cobia mouth a bait. We had a light NE wind and warm clear water. The next day the NE popped up to 30mph and the water got rough and muddy. That was the end of King/Cobia for the year, but several big Drum were caught. I remember meeting Drumdum for the first time one of those nights.

Anyway, chances are, you're gonna want to be Drum fishing.
