Gap(s) after the first layer

I can’t seem to get rid of the poor layering just after the first layer. Playing with the z-offset changes the first layer characteristics but not the ones that immediately follow. They remain unaffected. I am using Lulbotz Taz 6. This print was done with n-Gen Copolyester. Using pretty much the default Cura settings for this material. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
