One cold tico

This is one of the ones we released yesterday in the CCA cobia tournament.   Biggest fish wins and none of ours were in contention so we kept a couple of the smaller, better eating ones for dinner and released this 35 pounder.   Of the dozen or so boats competing, 11 of them weighed in their cobia.   Biologist with NC State were standing by to remove otoliths and sex the fish.   Hopefully we'll learn a little more about cobia that will lead to reasonable regulations that don't have "bad science" penalizing anglers.
