I hooked a fairly large cobia, for the sound anyway, on Sunday. I saw it from a distance moving in. I was already sight fishing for redfish in less than 2' of water, so spotting her was pretty easy. It was so shallow, that its tail was displacing water as it was swimming. I pitched a Z-man shrimp to it and it didn't waist any time inhaling it. It ran me under a dock and went out the other side. If I wasn't by myself, I would have jumped in the water and followed it and got picked up on the other side. I ended up breaking it off at my leader to braid connection because I was putting a lot of pressure on it and it was only 10lb braid. My guess is that it was around 30lbs. Not a giant by any means but still pretty cool to see in real skinny water.

Cool I was asking because I saw one Sunday while I was out there. It was also in about 2ft of water.
