First cobia I've seen this year

They're starting to come thru... Spotted 2 big cobia in our chum line yesterday (somewhere within the 9 mile limit off Alligator Point). One hit my buddy's pinfish on the surface but pulled the hook. Next couple months they're gonna be one of my favorite targets Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

Re: Need to have a smooth puffer tournament

I caught some trout, no puffers aka rabbitfish. I think they heard I was coming with extreme prejudice... Lots of youtubes of people peeling the skin off to create fried puffer "wings" (bone-in, tail attached), but here's one where the guy is being pretty careful on a good-sized smooth puf...

Re: Need to have a smooth puffer tournament

I'm going out on the flats tomorrow. I've already decided I'm gonna skin & eat every puffer I catch.

Re: Good areas for a novice "captain"

Launch at the Fort in St Marks and run out to the lighthouse or even a bit further. Stay within the channel markers and you should be fine. There are some sharp turns, and if you miss a marker you could end up on an oyster bar, so I'd follow another boat the first few times or use the Navionics app ...

Re: New Killswitch Requirement

I've been better about using mine since that accident on the river last year. Especially offshore alone . . .

Re: SPANISH MACKS

Fresh ones are good for fish tacos. Not so good from the freezer

Re: While I prefer Humminbird products....

Has anyone tried the Lowrance ActiveTarget Live? It's supposed to work with HDS or Elite FS, but is it a separate module or a new transducer? What would it be good for - inshore/flats? Seems pricey

Re: While I prefer Humminbird products....

I run an elite ti2 9 inch. Offshore I like to put downscan in the middle zoomed in on the bottom along with sidescan on either side. So I added a cheap Galaxy tab-a 10 inch tablet to my dash to show navionics charts. Inshore I just use the elite. Lots of bargains on this unit since the Elite FS came...

Re: Flounder Report

Just curious -- how do y'all make sure the flounder is 14" before you hit 'em with the gig? Seems like throwing back a gigged flounder would just be feeding the crabs.

Re: Weather and Navigation Seminar

I kept it on. They got past their tech difficulties after a bit. I learned why fog over water takes longer to burn off than fog over land. Got a link to their electronic chart viewer which is replacing their paper charts. That's about it for over an hour long webinar. As my kids would say, . . . meh...
