    That cobia grilled up deliciously and fed family and friends :)

    If you need (want) a mid-size spinning reel some ass... today only Quantum Boca 50s are half price from Tackle Direct...... I really didnt need, but for $80 I couldnt resist (got a new Grundens bib for 30% off too) :cool:

    Cobia over grouper all day long.... more fun to catch too ;)

    Crabs are a staple of a cobia's diet, that's why they taste so good

    more accurately, i would say it's a tie for me. i slightly prefer the flavor of cobia, but slightly prefer the slightly flakier texture of grouper.

    No breaks on weekends up here. Winter pattern starting to set in. Most weekends unfishable weather wise due to offshore conditions.

    Insane fishing yesterday. A bit chilly in the morning but right after sunrise, the bite was on. Limits all around the boat with quite the mixed bag. My 3.5lb porgy just missed the pool, limited on Seabass and threw in 4 Bluefish for good measure. All of it on manual using 1lb weight in 250ft. Needless to say, I'm worn out! Wifey tried to get me to take my electric but noooooo, I was hard headed. I should have listened as I wound up sleeping on a heating pad under my right shoulder! Lost several fish because I just didn't have the arm strength left to crank them in. :)

    Upside is that the pain helped me with the 2.5hr drive home last night. Nice way to end my 2019 fishing season. Found a new party boat in the process too. Well, can't wait for 2020. Thinking perhaps a Cod trip but I'm done until spring depending on the winter/spring transition.

    Tight Lines!!
