    Lower Keys Backountry Cobia 2-10-13

    Fished out front yesterday before the wind picked up too bad. My buddy caught a nice blackfin and had others come up on live pilchards on a wreck in 200ft. but once other boats showed up it all shut off. I tried to do some bottom fishing but the current was all sorts of confused and decided to come back inshore. Played with some snapper and a few goliaths in on some shallower bottom and ended the day happy to have gotten some rods bent. Today I had some time off and decided to go into the backcountry and hide from the wind. We were fishing one of my favorite summertime grouper spots in about 7 ft. of water when the man in the brown suit decided to start inhaling the chum. I quickly plopped a pinfish in his face and after a good fight he was in the boat. We played around for a little while longer with some more mackeral and snapper then picked up and headed in. Tight lines.
