3/18 Cobia

We went out Sunday for a shake down trip on the ****. We headed East out of Destin and we were around Crystal Beach when this girl came swimming by. We were about 200 yards off the color change and she was right on top and starving. Put the jig right in front of her and she was all over it. My wife Jenny was the angler and she does a great job fighting fish. It felt great to get the first one off our back and ready for more to come.

    Nice one! You guys get a weight on it? Looks like a pretty good fish.

    I'm probably going to give it a shot on Saturday. Maybe we'll have some luck.
