Default Cobia!!!

Took a trip out to our "secret" spot in Navarre to try and get some quick ERS. Yakntat had his 2 in 30 minutes, then promptly ditched me to go hang out with his family. I sat there trying to gut it out and eventually got an 18incher.



Didn't get my second red, but I didn't manage to grab a couple decent Lane Snapper. They taste just as good
Then I pull up this monster!



Alright, he's only 21inches, but he is a Cobia . At first I thought it was a damn Remora, till I noticed he had no sucker head. Back in the water he went to terrorize someone another day. Wind picked up and it got nice and choppy, so I decided to head back in. My duster rig barely hit the water when I got slammed by a nice King.


Throw my rig out and barely have time to set the pole down and this beast takes me for a ride. My largest to date.


Close to shore my rig gets slammed again, and peels off quite a bit of line. The fight was eerily reminiscent of a battle I had with a BFT not too long ago. Sadly, it was just a roided up Bobo. He wrecked himself trying to get away and pretty much just rolled over and gave up beside the yak. Cut Bait!


Total haul for the day


On a side note, once again I broke something on the yak. During the launch I went to jump in from the right side and heard a crack. Look down and the side bar is cracked. I really need to lose some weight




Tight Lines!

Nice report and great video. I think it took me 35 min though to get my limit of snapper today. 2 cobia's in one day, odd.

It's a Calcutta TE401 paired with a 7 & 1/2 ft St. Croix Mojo Inshore Hvy action. I use it for trolling and throwing heavy lures.

I will be darned.... I guess I caught one also today. I really thought it was a big remora, looks exactly like the one you caught. Cool.
