3/13/07 COBIA SPRING BREAK, part 2

Got a very late start because we didn't plan on fishing today until we stepped outside to beautiful skies and no wind. [54 lb cobia caught over the weekend]

We were on the water by 11am and back off by 2:30pm. Saw 10 or so cobia ranging from barely legal to a nice 30 lber. [can you find the cobia in the picture?] Jack threw dozens of times to most of them. Most had the duck-n-run method down from over the weekend. Even the 1 manta ray we saw chose the duck-n-run method. Some others decide to enjoy the swim right past the boat and while they were curious of the jigs, nobody wanted to eat.

I'm not sure if weather was a factor in their not eating or if they're all so sick of yellow jigs and boats following them around.

I'm doing my best to see the fact that it was a beautiful 3.5 hrs on the water in almost 80 deg temps and while the cooler isn't full, the frig isn't empty either. We still got school done afterwards. So, life doesn't get much nicer than that.

Tight lines,

PS: here I am riding backwards on the way home. I often like to look back at the wake of the boat and scan the waters for more fish.
PPS: Lifting up the Salsberry family in prayer as they mourn the loss of their daughter, Lindsey.
