Grass flats Cobia sight fishing

Every once in a while I still get a chance to capitalize on what I would consider an Awesome catch. It's not all about the fish itself it's about the manner in the way the fish was caught and the hunt that led up to its capture.
I took a day to cruise up north a bit with a buddy and his beaver tail in towe, the mission fly fishing for reds, snook and Tarpon. Luckily I brought my spinning rod and was able to make the best of an ideal scenario of catching a 38 inch cobia we saw cruising behind a ray in 2 ft of water while poling a grass flat throwing a DOA Shrimp looking for schools of reds with a cobia in the back of my mind. Finally saw a ray then Bam there it was right behind the ray cruising. First cast watched him eat and the race was on. Definitely one of my favorite catches ever.
