BlueH20Fisher (1/16/2010)Aren't you the big guy that's always drunk, holding a 30" cobia on thepensacola pier... dead? When tournament fishing, less cobia die for reasons already mentioned. If you're in the finger pointin mood, then point west to LA where there is no vessel limit, and cobia go to spawn. Also fish move in cycles, from my understanding fishing in the late 80's was worse than now. I've never seen 100's of boats out fishing for cobia in any one day. I'm not saying there aren't less fish, or their isn't more pressure, there is. I believe it should be a 40" min. and 3 per vessel with no sale, but that's not happening any time soon, there's too many snapper in jepardy.
Your pretty funny! If You or anybody catches me killing an Illeagle fish, call everybody.that fish by the way weighd 28 #s. Not nothing to talk about untill you said something. If your somebody like you think you are, I'll fish besideyou, We'll see how it goes & who's on the fish. I may know you & You havent said or done anything but run that yap! You wont ever see a illeagle fish hit the deck with me around. Word to yo Motha!Its on! Who Blue you.I've seen a 100 boats out there! Cutting the pier off for fish smaller than the pic your talking about. Who blue!

A hundred, not hundreds, there's a difference. I don't know you, I fish on okaloosa, and on boats. I've been to pensacola once or twice, don't know if I saw you or not. As for casting further, yea you got me beat, as for the rest of it, I don't know. I'ts not a casting competition on okaloosa. I'll take your word that fish was 28# because I wasn't there, but it reminded of a catfish out of a farm pond. Your bitching about fish poulations now, yet you were probably one of the ones that used to "stack "em like cord wood, back in the day." Now you want something done about it, and for younger guys like me (25)who weren't able to fish back in the mid 90's, to be heald accountable for fish depletion, and for building the fishery back up.

The 90's as You say is not the Era that ling was good in!:banghead It was the 70's & earlier. When there was no boats or tournaments after them. Yes there were maybe 10 boats on the horizon. Now, Tons of boats everywhere like a parade. Actually last year was less boats due to weather conditions, Fuel prices, & the economy. Less boats entered in tournys last year. Like I've said before, No pier on the gulf coast has put a Dent inor hurt any fish population! Piers are Merely Messingers of whats is or isnt happening on the beach. Fish have to swim by the pier to get caught. You have only that 1 chance to catch it, not chase it down for a hour if needed to get it to eat or snatch it. I've known of reports of boats snatching large turtles , "Logerheads" the big black ones to catch the fish off it when ever it comes up to breath. Those kinda acts are whats depleting the stock for tourny reasons & selling them reasons. Years ago If they didnt eat, Go catch another 1. Now when a boat decides to let a fish go, The next boat is right there to attack it ! After years of this, They are in seriuos trouble. We are affecting thier migratory path by the amounts being caught. We cant keep doing this. I'm all for a slot size on them & making them a game fish. If you want your kids to be able to catch them on the beach in the future, We had better wisen up.

This is going no where, but I'll play cause I'm bored and there's no fishing on TV. Isaid 90's cause it's recent enough to be relevant. 200 years ago buffalo roamed the great plains. It's not realistic to compare the 60's, when Frank Helton and "Live eel Lloyd" were the only two guys out in a boat on most given days, to today. Cobia were trash back then, "bottom feeders that would eat anything." Not many people even knew about the migration back then. Frank told me he never even knew what a cobia was till his early twenties or something. He said he'd be on the beach with his dad pompano fishing, and his dad would yell to get out of the water cause the sharks were comming again, talking about wads of cobia. I hope Frank doesn't mind me quoting him on here. I bet when the limit was 2/person and you caught one on the pier, that you didn't leave cause you had enough fish to eat. As far as being worried about bodily harm over a few words... I'm not, and I'll fish next to your tired, blurred eyes all day, as long as it's fair I mean first shot.

Nobody mentioned the 60's Or 200 years ago. Im saying whats happening now& why that is! Why that IS! I thought that what this is about. Bring it on, if your old enough to have a beer, Bring that too! I can fish besides the best ling fishermen & have for a long time. Even they are vulnerable to not catching the fish. Hopefully there will be some. Maybe we can have pier tournaments to see who's best. Not first shot, best shot! Who hooks , lands the fish on average. Im sure there are plenty ready to play! Some from South Fla. Come up & are real good.

Im gonna have to disagree that piers havent hurt them as well as boats, You said there werent many boats back in the day so who was killing them all? The pier. I have heard plenty of stories of piers killing the hell out of them back in the day and im sure that took its toll on the fishery as well as the boats its not one groups fault

So how do I catch one of them there "ling"? Get 40lb power pro, a 3.5oz jig and a case ofbusch lightand sit back and wait until everyone gets excited??? Anyone who doesnt want first shot thinks that way because they suck! First shot catches more fish. PERIOD! Show your skill by spotting the fish and catching it. Every year same debates... I agree regs should be changed. 40" 3 per vessel gulf wide.
