Met up with Andriod this morning for first trip off Dania Pier. He was kind enough to lend me a jigging rod, jig and point me in the right direction. After sunrise broke the ice with small bonito. Followed his lead and kept drifting and jigging. Lost a trigger fish but was good sign. Lost a jig to a mystery break off. Re-rigged and 20120819_070114.jpgsaw20120819_091652.jpg20120819_110451.jpg20120819_070221.jpg20120819_094811.jpg a boil and threw the jig in that direction. Fish on and I was sure it was an amberjack. Got color and to my surprise cobia! Frank the Tank (showed em around Matheson Hammock a while back) and his brother were close and Frank tried gaffing a few times. After it slowed we put it between us and Frank grabbed it...thanks again. Measured in at 50 1/2 inches. Thought it was time to head in but Android saved me again with the fish bag.
Kept drifting and added another trigger fish and alamaco jack. GREAT first day and Android friends made it a team effort for sure.
