While most of you were fishing the king of the beach. I didnt enter cause kings are a hit or miss with me.Headed out to a public wreck in 45 ft about 10 miles looking for some light tackle bonita mackerel action well that wasnt the case. Filled the well at a bridge in the intercoastal so we started chumming first bait in the water gets slammed not even 5 minutes in.It was about a 20-25 pound cobia i let my gf fight it while i threw out another bait boom another one on this was a big boy! we landed both fish in about 10 minutes we let the smaller one go and kept the big one he weighed out to 40 pounds.Not bad for my first cobia then i hooked into something huge it snapped my 60 pound braid i was suprised it was fighting like a bigger cobia but i will never know.Then i hooked up again gave it to my girlfriend again she made short work of a 35 pounder gaffed it and we left because i didnt have a cooler big enough for the big boys!!!!!! first cobia.jpgMy 40 poundercobias.jpgMe and my gfs cobias
I was anchored right next to you in the blue SeaFox.. those gave you guys a hell of a fight! Were you fishing with Greenies or what? We were fishing with Shrimp and fresh sardines and cigar minnows and only got 1 king on all day, but good grunts, Hog Snapper, and black SeaBass to take home and eat.
What a small world lol i would have loved to stay i was trying to find somebody with a filet knife so i could get them in the cooler we left them biting for sure. Cut and live green backs on 60 pound floro with long shank J hooks with no weight at all just made made my bait drift back natural with the chunks of chum and bury the hook into the bait so you cant see it any more . I dont use wire unless i start to loose hooks ive caugght kings and 100 pound plus sharks with this sameoutfit many times at that same spot!!!
