Default EOP Surf Report + SURPRISE Catch

Ran a little East of Portofino this morning with lines in before 10 am. Water was a little muddy in close, changing to green further out. Bite was steady with a mix of Pompano, Whiting & Bluefish. Only one Hardhead Cat managed to get up in the mix. Bite cooled off for a bit till one of my big rods goes off and bends the sandspike while I see a fish blow up on the surface. Fought the fish to the beach & surfed em in on a wave onto the sand. Measured 35" to the fork & is the first Cobia I have caught off the beach in 40 years of surf fishing. All fish were taken on peeled shrimp.

Every time I have a rod bow over I'm hoping it's this, but it's always a dang redfish

So awesome, congrats!

Thanks! Just a heads up for anyone heading to that stretch of beach in the next few days, the dog flies were chewing pretty good ... bring some pants or repellent.

We were about 3/4 of a mile east of portofino yesterday from 4-730pm. Caught 3 whiting, a huge black drum and probably 2 dozen catfish. Not sure what we were doing wrong. Had 7 poles with shrimp, live fleas, and fish bites.
