Fishing for Cobia in Fort Lauderdale; A Cobia rates among the very best in taste and texture of seafood
March 24th, 2010
The weather cleared up just in time for Spring Break 2010 in Fort Lauderdale. Today, Russ, Randy, John and Dennis fished aboard the Lady Pamela with Justin and Adam. Justin turned right out of Port Everglades as Adam arranged the trolling spread into the water. They trolled to the south catching Bonito fish, King Mackerel and Bluerunner. After they slammed the fish on the troll, Justin lead the guys to one of the many shipwrecks along the South Florida coastline. Small Almaco Jacks and Amberjacks were bustin’ the bait when a giant Cobia took a bite. Randy fought his dinner all the way to the boat and realized his catch was almost as big as his mate (Little Adam). Cobia are hard fighting fish that demand a sturdy rod and reel setup. Indisputably a rough and ready fighter, when hooked, a Cobia considered by some to be one terrific sport-fish that offers excellent eating.
