Cobia Time!

Busy Busy, Busy so I will keep this post short! Cobia are starting to show up and are actually ahead of schedule compared to other years. While most big fish are still being caught by those chumming around york spit and Grandview a few nice fish have been seen cruising the surface.

The first few waves of cobia have finally shown up in the Chesapeake Bay and these brutes are ready for battle. Went out Sunday with super glassy calm seas. Saw 4 fish while sight fishing but we did manage to get this 50 inch fish to take an eel.  after a 15 minute fight and multiple times boatside only to take off again, we got him next to the boat.  The swing of the gaff fell true and quickly i pulled the fish in the boat. Home we headed to clean and prepare our catch!

Come on Virginia, Let's Step It Up!

I found this article on a great Chesapeake Bay website called ChesapeakeLiving.com about Maryland's Oyster management. I cannot say enough great things about Maryland's effort to restore the bay to ists former glory. It's time Virginia steps up and joins in the plan! Keep up the GREAT WORK MARYLAND!
