The weather finally took a break from the freezing cold and warmed up a bit. With Cobia on the brain, Eric and I decided to run offshore and give it a try. We set out S.E. towards Bethel Shoals. Seas were 2ft. and a little choppy on the way out.  There was a little bait on the buoy but they were not biting a sabiki. Next stop was a spot on the ledge. There was Kings skying on bait pods. We started casting anything and everything and were hooking Kings one after the other. I was catching them on a 4000 with 10lb. braid. We quickly limited out with our 4 fish. We fished the bottom for awhile catching Seabass and even a nice yellow tail Snapper. I had a Cobia hooked up and lost it, thats when it swam over and ate Eric’s Jig. Then he had the pleasure of loosing it. It was maybe a keeper.  The winds laid down and the sun came out. It made for a great ride home.
