Fish Structure for Cobia
<p>Saltwater Cowboy Charters Fishing Report -Ken and his buddy Stephan booked us for three days yet this is page one and the most recent in the trilogy - They booked two days offshore (8Hrs each) and one day Back Country (8 Hrs) Heading out I decided that gas was not option since we fished this group three times and the first two times the weather sucked, literally, despite catching great fish the first two times Gator and I wanted to place these guys on MONSTER FISH. On our third trip out we had great weather, 78 degrees, mild roll on the great blue gulf - picture perfect. Gator, my first mate and I decided we wanted to fish, period. Blowing out southwest of Gordon's Pass toward the R Tower we found some signs life but nothing worth stopping for. Even the Blue Hole was not holding any sonar blips, so on to the R Tower we went. With live big threads dropping once anchored off the NW side it was not 10 minutes and two of ultimately four cobia were caught, the first one on board a mere 55LBs and the second 35LB!! From there we went out another 12 Miles to some incredible ledges, they did not let us down as caught 35 LB _+ Red Grouper, a box full of legal limit yellowtail snapper and more red grouper than you could stand to pull up. the water temp registered at just under 70 degrees and the depth was about 90 feet. As if this was not enough for a mere human we went to the infamous X where 100lB plus AJ's were hooked up along with a 25 inch gag grouper - all in all for an 8 hour day it was 200LB+ worth of fish for many dinners to come.
