Default Bottom fishing and tons of baby cobia

Took the family fishing on Saturday. The snapper bite was slow and we managed our limit of 18". What was interesting was that we caught 4-5 young cobia for each snapper. Is it normal for that many young cobia to hang out this time of year? Thanks.

Seems my newbies have a nack for catching those by reeling real slow at the surface...best way to catch them I've seen, often catching the same one numerous times when released....

The baby cobia have been STUPID thick this year. I got ran off a couple of spots because my clients were catching them 2-3 at a time!

They're a blast when they crash your sabiki and then fling the gold hooks of death all around the boat. Last time I got into them, I pulled those dang hooks out of both arms and legs. They went bat shit crazy once I brought them over the gunwhale.
