40lb. Cobia 3-01-08 Cobia fishing out of Port Canaveral. We left the dock around 9a.m. The reports were that the Rays were in 55ft. of water straight out. Well lets just say you couldn’t miss the boats. We found a two Rays right off and neither had fish on them. On the third ray that we spotted it looked like that there was nothing on it. Out of the blue a nice Cobia swam right up to the boat. I was holding my rod and just flipped the switch and let my Thunder bait buck tail drop, jigged it once and let it drop again. The Cobia inhaled and I just let it run before set the hook. Fish ON! We landed it and it was approx. 40lbs. There was a lot of rays and a lot of boats. To much pressure, we saw one other fish and we couldn’t get it to hit. At least we caught one nice fish.
