My wife's first Cobia!

My wife caught her first cobe yesterday. 33 1/2" she saw it swim by and thought a huge catfish was swimming with a small shark. I told her to cast her shrimp to it and it turned and she actually watched it mouth and take the bait! She took this fish on 12lb test no less. After about 15 minutes she brought it boatside and the rest is filet history. Market 31 in the coal barge canal.

    After the first, you can get addicted to those brown fish. Congrats.

    Very Cool!!
    Unfortunately your odds of ever catching one again yourself just went WAY down.
    Give the wife the fever and then add 2 young boys to the equation like I did.
    Nope, you are just a boat driver now.:)
    Great job man, did you try any "spots" for bait?:wink

    Didn't have a chance to drown any of the spots or pinfish before the wind started kicking and we came back inside. Let them all go.
