FRIDAY evening i got my first cobia of the year as those who ever fish with me know the first one i land i release. The weight was unofficial cause we used a digital scale that went up to 50lbs. The fish was caught off the rocks at the officer's pier in FT MONROE. I was fishing for bait and i threw my mini heaver with a bunker head and10 minutes later i pick up to rebait, and Mr.Brown was there for me. The fish weighed 43lbs.
After the little storm FRIDAY night i headed for grandview to fish SATURDAY. I started at 5am fishing for him and by 6:30 i was hooked up with my 64lbs 58.5 inch COBIA. Took me 20 minutes to land him fighting them crab pots and MR BROWN. Just another day fishing and enjoying what i do. :cool:

I got there just as you hooked up. I think baitcaster and I already reported it, but I don't know If he was there at the time. This digita-age fishing stuff is pretty cool. Congratulations.

I got there after he hooked up on it. I was there while sarge was fighting his bull ray that wanted to swim to florida though. I was just down from james on the left side of the pier. I had a big green wagon with a cooler the same size on it.. I wish i would have been there to see it. I cant wait til I get my first one...

I was laying down using my tackle bag as a pillow while I watched my rigs. I think I saw you walk up. James looked like a proud pappa.
