We went out yesterday with my wife and her mom to do a cruise on the beach and to have easter lunch on the boat. While I was loading, I asked the wife, should I bring any rods? ... duh, of course if I didnt I would see like 100 cobia ready to jump in the boat. So I grabbed one pomp rod and one cobe rod and we went off... The gulf side of shell island was absolutely beautiful! And unlike Saturday, I actually saw some life up next to the beach. WE had several schools of pompano swim by, but boy they are fast. Until last week, I had been a pompano virgin... In the last two weeks, I am up to three and those little buggers are fun, and tasty. So only hooked one today, but he hit a bare jig. Nice fun fight and all were having fun. We also saw several smallish cobes (20-30 lb) swimming, but they would not even look at the jig I was throwing at them. Needed something alive to get some interest. All in all a very fun day on the water with the family.
