Red Hot Cobia Action

Not only are they not all gone, but there are a lot of fish here. Sometimes the Crystal Coast misses out on some of the best cobia fishing as they bypass us on the way north. Not the case this year. Since the water has warmed after the nor'easter, bait fishing has been steady and sight casting really, really good. Yesterday we saw at least 20 fish, hooking 11 and landing 7, including a 60 pounder. Today we saw 15 or more, catching 4, including a double header of 50 pounders. One of the fish that we saw today was gigantic, at least 80-90 pounds, of course the little 30 pounder eats the bucktail instead.....the little guys are better eating anyway.
