If youre ever in town this summer and want to go fishing, give me a shout, you remind me a lot of myself at the age of 15,and im 17 right now, my friends would tease about spending all of my money on fishing equipment , but all I would say is "THAT FISHING IS WHAT I LIVE FOR" maybe we can hookup this summer and go cobia fishing,or flounder fishing.
JUST LET ME KNOW ON THE SITE

yea that would be awesome. Im planning on learning how to cobia fish off a pier this summer. Done it off boats tons of times just not pier. My friends consider virginia beach my 2nd home. I dont get a lot of crap about liking fishing so much but every now and then some1 will b like just joking around and say fishings for hicks. Weakfish I am gonna be down at the beach probably all summer. I think i might mate some. We could cobia fish from a pier(something i have never done) or flounder fish by lesner.

Yeah that would be cool I do a lot of Cobia fishing at Harrisons Pier, and at buckroe(If it isnt to crowded on the T), and the VB Pier which I recently scouted out this past summer, I had several hookups on the VB Pier, caught numerous rays and skates soaking bait but I think its too shallow their, although I did get into some Spanish out there in late summer, but yeah Im saving up for a jon boat right now, so that I have something to get out to my spring flounder hole by the HRBT, caught some nice ones in there last year along with some monster Grey's. P.S. who are u going to be a mate for, I was thinking of going down to rudee inlet this spring to see if I could get a job on the Bobbi Lee!!

i might try for first chance. I did it for 1 trip last summer and but i am not sure if i got the spot yea i think its still full. Hey weakfish you ever caught any cobes at the other piers. The only place i have caught them is at this place my uncle found by the high rise. It goes from 50 ft deep to 19. I am thinking about gettin a 4700ss penn reel for cobes. You think that will work?

Yeah, a 4700ss should do the job, although for Cobes I prefer coventional, the 4700ss would be perfect for sight casting a bucktail or live croaker,spot,trout,sandperch,etc. to a cobe.Me personally I have a Custom Heaver(CalstarBlank),and a Daiwa Sealine-X50, another heaver with a calcutta 700
I also have a Penn Slammer, with a 320GTi
And Im getting another heaver from lighthouse tackle soon that I will put a Daiwa Grandwave-Z 40 or 50 on

i got a penn slammer and also a 320 gti so that might work. Hey what technique do you use. When i fished for them what we did was fish fish finders with either a bunker or live eel. I caught mine on a live eel. And lost a nice one approaching 50 lbs on a bunker. Do you do like the king fisherman guys do with 2 rods?

U mean Pin Rigging? I never really gave it a try but, All I use is fishfinder rigs with live Bluefish, trout, croaker, EEL, crab, I will also use a variety of oily hunks of bait such as Bluefish,etc. on a fishfinder rig.

I always keep a live croaker, trout, or spot handy just in case mr. Brown comes cruising along ;)
