    Cobia On A Jet Ski!!

    My wife Cindy wanted to go for a jet ski ride this morning. I said I wanted to go fishing. So we compromised and did both! I threw a couple of eels, a rod and a gaff on the ski and we departed our house in Poquoson Va. around 0815 this morning. I ran out to the York River Channel in the Chesapeake Bay and cast a live eel at several sets of buoys. No luck, so I crossed over to the Baltimore Channel and worked a couple sets. My third buoy paid off and I got hooked up nice on my third cast. The fish went back for the buoy and I could feel my line rubbing against it. Luckily I got him off and away from after a little coaxing. It was a fun twenty minute fight, he made several laps around my ski with another Cobia following him the whole time. Cindy handed me the gaff as he came alongside and I stuck him solid bringing right on board. We both held him down with our feet as I put him on a stringer.
    Twenty minutes later at 40mph we were back at our dock by 1030 hrs. The fish measured 53 inches. I cleaned him up and we both enjoyed "as fresh as gets" Cobia on the grill for lunch. Here are some pictures from today.

    What is that you are fishing with? They look like small eels or something. That's a nice cobia.
