    Cobia and Mangs

    Got this decent cobia today while snapper fishing on the county reefs just off Sarasota. 20 lb test fluorocarbon leader, 1/0 circle hook and a big fat shrimp right on the bottom. The fish fought for 45 minutes on light tackle. Managed about 15 or so really nice mangs (sorry no pics) and some porgy as well. Needed to chum really heavy to get the bite started, most likely because of the big moon. Even managed a decent tripletail yesterday on the ride along the beach.
    The shrimp we got at the baitshop were really big today and it made a significant difference.

    Quality fish Kevin. Glad to see one of your reports again. They are a big help to the angler who only gets out once a week or so. Thanks!!

    Great Cobe. Did you catch Mangs on surface or bottom & on what bait? Thanks

    Mangs on bottom using big fat shrimp. I think the full moon had something to do with it as it took a long time to get the snapper bite going. They never came up into the slick.
