24.0 lb. Cobia caught by All About Flats Fishing / Inshore Fishing Charters fishing in Florida on 12/09/09
38.0" / 24.0 lb. Cobia caught by All About Flats Fishing / Inshore Fishing Charters fishing on Wednesday December 09, 2009 at 11:45 near Apollo Beach in Hillsborough County, Florida (FL), United States North America using a soft 10" eel dark green by Berkley

I was refered by a regular client to take a Charter two guys - Gary and Ron - down from Canada that were on vacation. We fished some deep rock ledges in Tampa Bay early in the morning and caught several short Grouper and lost a couple of bigger fish. We decided to try sight casting for cobia before going for snook in the back country. So, we went to the warm water of near the power plant and began looking for cobia in shallow water (2-6'). We spotted a pod of 6 fish and I instructed Gary to cast in front of the school of Cobia and WHAM the smaller fish in the group nailed the lure. We boated one other Cobia and released it to fight another day.
