Cobia In Matlacha Pass
Peter Boot from Toronto pulled this almost legal cobia off the back of a stingray in Matlacha Pass late this afternoon. These fish aren't easy to find in our shallows but when you do they're easily caught. This cobia slammed a Gulp jerk shad that landed five feet off its nose. That's a typical response from these aggressive predators. I just wish we would see as many of them in the skinny water as the offshore guys do. There aren't many things that taste better than fresh cobia fillets.
