Default Video: Super fun bite of Cobia!!!! Quick boat limit


Hey guys,

Here is a quick video of us doing some cobia fishing off of Jacksonville. It was an on fire bite and a took almost no time to get a limit. We were back home before lunch. Doesnt get more fun than this!!!!!

- Joe

EDIT:
Sorry for the confusion with regulations. We were fishing in Federal waters off of the coast of Florida. The recreational limit is 2 per person per day. Below are links to the SAMFC website as well as the screen shot from their site. I apologize again for the confusion!
-Joe

Not impressed at all.

The NMFS loves this stuff.

Your within your limits I suspect. Just not cool to post it the way you did.

What you gonna do with all that meat?

The NMFS will suspect every recreational angler can do this. THEN, WE ALL WILL GET BURNED.

Nice job on catching but be careful on how you post such. It is not in any way productive to recreational fishing interest.

Nice catching though.

Recreational limits for the Atlantic are 33" fork length and 1 per person or 6 per vessel, whichever is less. Some of those look less than a 33" fork length, but that may be deceiving, so we'll gloss over that. The number certainly looks like more than 6 though......

Looks like you might have gone over the boat limit a bit.

It's almost as impressive as 4 guys going out in the Gulf and bringing home 20 hog fish that measure 12.1"s....

Not a piece of ice on the fish either.

Just gonna call it as I see it.

You should have drug them backwards on plane to make sure they were dead.

I see in the video things I would rather not see from a sportsman.

Looks like you got a few thousand dollars and 60 days in jail time laying on your deck there.

Read the link you just posted!

Trip Limit: 2 fish per person per day or 6 fish per vessel per day, whichever is more restrictive.

im not sure if you read the federal waters regulations. You may have been mistaken with the florida state waters. Federal is at the bottom of the page

you could have been looking at the commercial limits, too. Its kind of a difficult website to read. Anyways, here is the snip from the florida federal water limits for cobia

I stand corrected. Yes the 6 person litmit is in the Commercial regs (FL), but not recreational.
