    Default Another Nice Cobia Today

    I saw the last good weather window for a couple of days so I made a quick trip.
    I stopped at Atlantic Bait and Tackle this morning around 0530 hrs and picked up a couple of live eels and some ice from Tony. I departed at 0630 from Rudee Inlet in Virginia Beach and went straight out to CB Buoy Line passing over several big schools of bait along the way. I caught two small Cobia at the first set of buoys. No.2 Buoy paid off with a nice fifty one inch Cobia that weighed in at about 36lbs. It ate a live eel that I tossed close to the buoy It ended up wrapping around the buoy and I had to make two circles around it to free up my line. I thought for sure I was going to lose it but luck prevailed and I managed to gaff it alongside my jet ski ten minutes later. I came straight back in by 0815 hrs. Took a parking lot shower and went to work. Thanks Kasen (sp) of Rudee Inlet Station Marina for taking the pics for me. I covered 18 miles and burned 4 gallons today. Here are some pictures.

    Great job. You sure are puttin a whoopin on the cobes this year! What kind of set up are you using for them? I am looking at getting a shimano 4000 size spheros and pair it with a JB custom rod. I want a spinning striper/cobia setup.

    Thanks for the replies. I was using a Shimano baitrunner and a Penn battle. Both with 65 lb power pro. I use a short 3ft 60 lb mono leader with a 7 or 8/0 j hook.

    Go Navy is right. As said before, love the pics of the Navy boats. Hated being at sea at the time, but those were some of the best days ever.
