    The boats are out and chasing cobia up and down the beaches. I hear reports of several nice catches today and yesterday. Sam Wesley, out of Grayton Beach, is reported to have caught a 60 lb cobia earlier today (Friday).

    I love watching all of the boats go up and down the coastline today. And what a beautiful day it is!:clap_1:

    Just in from Seacrest and saw a 6'-7' shark munching on the boat's leftovers from this mornings cobia run. Probably no more than 4' from the shore. Several cleaned cobia heads and bones floating around out there.

    Do these boats clean the fish on the boats and then toss the rest in the water? Good way to chum it up for the big fins!

    Right in front of Sandcliffs condos. About 20 people ran down to the beach to check it out.

    Was there for about 10 minutes then swam away. Didn't see which direction. I was haulin' chairs!

    Hate to say it but folks from those boats toss all kinds of stuff of their boats. If their cleaning the Cobia onboard and tossing the head and rest then I suggest they've gone beyond the limit of 1 per angler per day. On a good note I saw about 40+ turtles in 2 days of cruisin and my legal Cobia soaking in Italian dressing right now.
