Headed out with my son for a quick trip to find whatever would bite. FM Beach area. I had heard Cobia have shown up as close as 4 miles so we started at a reef 4 miles out. Picked away at small grunts, keeper grunts (thrown back) and saw the occasional cuda. Sent out a small grunt on a surface rod. Nothing! Had a chum bag out and chunked ladyfish at a couple different spots. Nothing! .Put a huge chunk of ladyfish on the bottom and bang, fought a good one for about 5 minutes. Ended up being a 26 inch gag! Unfortunately I had to send it back. Overall pretty slow day. Great to see a gag that close to shore. Checked a bunch of traps for Tripletail on the way in. No dice. Great hanging with my son and probably should have started deeper and worked our way back.
Thanks for the report
