    1/27 cobia

    My wife and I went out to try for trout, sheephead. Stopped at the El Jobean bridge tried for sheephead but no one home so we ran to the south end of Hog Island for some trout. Fishing in 3' of water we caught a few small trout and ladyfish. I was throwing a twitch bait black/silver about 10' from the boat was a big flash on my bait. At first I said damn shark, but after about 15 minutes I got it near the boat an saw it was a cobia. Another 1/2 hr we landed it. 47".

    Great job, got to love when they show up on the flats when you are trout fishing.

    I love when they are on the flats, they have nowhere to cut you off, unlike when on the wrecks
