View Full Version : cobia
If somebody can give me directions on how to post pictures I can show y'all a 15 pound cobia I took on 8 pound spinning gear over X-mas on my dads boat. Fought him for over a half-hour. Had to lead him up onto the flats with the boat so dad could jump over and net him. One tough fish...
I don't usually state this but I hope you ate it. I'm not sure if you know it but Cobia are mighty tasty. Especially one about 15 pounds.
Sorry. I thought about it and then looked it up. I think you were in Florida but if you were in Georgia I would have been telling you to commit a crime. Open season on Cobia in Georgia is 3/16 to 11/30. They also have to be a minimum of 33 inches fork length. Still a great fish to catch and eat. I used to catch them in the Spring on the surface around buoys and stuff off the Georgia coast. Hmmm, they would be a good candidate for a big streamer.
You are correct, Charlotte Harbor near Pine Island - Cast 'em a shrimp as he was following a ray, 36 inches, excellent off the grill. I think snook is still better though...How do I post the picture?

Man I am with you guys on the Cobia. I haven't had snook, but I love both the flavor and consistency of the Cobia.
