Fishing for Cobia F&B tournament

Tim and I fished with Tim's brother Rob and friend Lenny on Sean Broaddas boat
''Hungry Eyes'' The F& B tournament and 60 plus boats entered. We anchored in the rips and caught a lot of 2-3 ft sharks. When the tide shifted we headed offshore to clean water and sight cast for the elusive Cobia. At the 2 PR buoy we started to see Cobia and was able to snag a 25-30 pound 'er. Seen several more but the bite for us was slow. The winner of the tournament caught a 92 lb Cobia on a offshore reef which is a SC. state record. A Huge fish. Here are the pics of our trip. I may not have been on the water paddling but was on the water cleansing the mind and soul.. Enjoy and Mahalo to Tim and Sean
