Cobias are Here in South Walton!
March 16, 2012 by Larry Pentel
The weather has finally turned to perfect and I got to run several trips the past few days. As the title says, the big news is the first cobia of the season (2012) was brought in to Grayton Beach today.
Capt Tyler Hammond on the "Too Dead Fish" set the bar high with a 67 pound fish caught by his charter yesterday morning. I don't know who was more excited, the angler or the captain!
These Gals had twice this many still in the cooler.
The fishing should just get better and better as the water warms. There were Spanish in the surf yesterday and today and the bait should start showing up any day. The Cobia run will kick in in earnest within the next week and the Kings won't be far behind. The jacks are still here but have been hit pretty hard the past two weeks and are not an "easy" catch like they were a month ago. Time to sharpen up those cobia hooks!
