Wanting  to try something different today. I have heard of reports of Cobia showing up out of the Port Canaveral.  John and I headed up there and set out on our search. We stopped on a few buoys and fished. I caught one small Triple Tail. We also caught a dozen pinfish for bait. Once we got out to were the rays and Cobia have been,  I saw a Ray jump and the boat that was just a bit closer than we were got to it first and hooked up a nice Cobia.  We continued our search, I noticed a few more Rays jumping. We were having a hard time getting over to them before they went down. Finally, we got lucky and got close enough to make a cast. There were 3 Cobia on this Ray. I threw first and hooked up the biggest of the 3. John made a cast but threw the bait off. That was it, the fish left the scene and we landed the one that I had hooked up. It ended up being right at 40lbs. We continued to search but no luck. The day was getting late and it was getting difficult to see.
