Headed down from Albany this morning. No keeper trout, few shorts. moved out deeper to try to get the kids catching some fish and got into some blue runners. while having a good time with them on light tackle, i look at the back of the boat and saw a cobia that was at least 40 inches (conservatively)...i could have hit him on the head with the end of my rod. we tossed some jigs and a spoon at him which is what we had rigged up. got about four good casts at him and each time he turned toward the bait, but never took it. probably couldn't have landed him with the tackle we were using, but we had to give it a try.
finished up with a bluefish, a nice spanish, several blue runners and ladyfish, and had to throw back a 23" king. at home with the boat cleaned up and ready to go again.
