I've only used crabs a few times. Never the way you are describing.

Were you up at the Rolldown? if not, how deep? Were you high speed trolling? or just using meat. 60lbs each?

Ocean would only let us go straight off basically, high speeding all day around the ledge. Both fish right at 60.

Well done guys.

Was by myself today and ran out late this morning for a few hours. Couple nice spanish on #3 planers and split tail mullet. Great day to be on the water.

Any one get reports from yesterday? I saw Donnie (Team Marine Specialties) went 7 for 8 on wahoo with a stud over 80lbs. No idea if they ran out of ponce or went north. Just saw the pictures. Hell of a day.

On Thursday we were targeting Sails. Arrived at Steeples at 8:00 AM and in two hours we only landed one Bonito (230). Headed West to Party Grounds and landed 6 Bonitos (90) all on naked Ballyhoo. Switched it up, and landed 3 kings free-lining with live Mullet (90). Headed West to bottom and landed a 15" Red Porgy on live large shrimp and 42" Cobia on live Pin fish (78). No luck with the Sails, but a fun day.

Any time you bring back a Cobia, that's a good day in my books

Question as I still consider myself an offshore rookie. I constantly hear Cobia are a top swimmer and usually hang with rays. But the 3 times Ive hooked or caught one all have been bottom fishing in 80'+.

Why is that?

While we generally get a Cobia migration in late winter/early spring, there are 'resident' Cobia that do hang around the local artificial reefs and rock formations in deeper depths

They like to follow stingrays and large bull sharks as well which hangout near the bottom. Most of the cobia that we catch are full of crabs. Lots of food for them down on the ocean floor

We usually head straight off and work the ledge and steeples to the north, usually end up off around Ormond.

Beautiful day yesterday, the weather, temperature and seas were near perfect. Landed a couple Kings at Party Grounds, and the commercial guys hit their limits early in the day. Bagged a 34" Cobia off the bottom (90) on live shrimp. Also, was boarded by FWC for the first time. All three guys were very professional and provided a wealth of fishing reports and advice.
