Kings and cobia Thursday st Augustine

Fished early today out of st Augustine targeting kingfish.  Found pogies a few miles north of the inlet by the beach club in 10 feet of water.  One throw was all I needed to fill the livewell and let a bunch go.  Ran northeast and hit live bottom and some structure between 6 and 7 miles out.  The wind got very nasty and I was actually thinking about quitting 30 minutes in, but it layed down and settled down.  Caught some nice kings on the slow troll.  Ended up with a treble hook in the thumb thanks to kingfish #2.  Cut the hook and poked barb end out the other side, that was fun.  Then caught 2 cobia, one was short, the other I kept at 37 inches fork length.  Ran in against a rough south wind, got back just in time for some storms and conference calls...  all in all a solid day on the water.  Things are fishy with the storm coming.
