I am a new member and this is my first post. Let me know if you can view this link. If so this is a video I took about three miles east of Cocoa beach pier on July 10,2011 during a cold water upwelling. The video is of a small oceanic sunfish I found trying to warm up on top. The water was 72 degrees. We ran east until we found warmer water. In 65 feet there was a huge school of redfish,jacks and little tunny.For the next 2 hours the battle was on. Three Redfish, about 5 tunny and lost count of the jacks. Not a bad day. Looking forward to the next cold water upwelling.:Rockon http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oxiZnnbR4Xk

Nice video, those Sunfish are strange looking to say the least. Sometimes you cna find cobia hanging underneath them.

Nice video, never seen one in the wild.... I'll have to look for them the next time we have some cold water.

That would have been nice. I found a big school of cobia last week on site 6 out of Ponce. Caught 4 and kept 2 around 25 pounds. Not bad from an 18 foot flats boat.

Very cool. But next time could you put your hand in front of the lens a little more?


Sorry, somebody had to give you a hard time about that.

I get a kick out of those things. That was a little one. I think they eat jellyfish.

We see a few every year out of Canaveral. I'm guessing they're just passing through. Those jokers can get pretty dang big and they can definitely hold some Cobes...
