There is usually reports of a Cobia being caught down in the lower Chesapeake bay area around Memorial day, and I am ready to once again try my hand at getting me one of these "Men in the Brown Suit" again this year. I have been going after them for the past 5 years but only one or two days at a year and that brings your chances of success down real low for a guy like me. There are a couple of ways to fish for these bad boys one is to anchor up, put out a chum bucket and or grind up some oily fish. Put out your baits in the tide and wait, changing bait every 10 min or so, or between beers if you want,this is some very slow fishing.
Now other people like to run to the many markers in the bay looking for fining Cobia in the slip of the marker and cast to them. This is a little more active than plan A above as you can imagine.
The next plan is to find someone who fishes for these fish on the regular and beg up a trip, which is my plan this year! Our friend the Web Foot Gangsta has informed me that he can hook us up with a trip with a man that collects Cobia citations like wall paper. I gotta run my ol lady is wanting me to cook!

I own a VW thing that I have had for some years now she runs good but is needing a carb now so I guess I gotta sell her or get her a new heart, she needs new shoes also now and her fuel supply is questionable, like everyone of us she is getting older. At 36 though she still is a sexy thing painted bright yellow she stands out in a crowd, but her seats are a little ragged but she keeps em covered with a fresh top. I am thinking of a Polaris Ranger side by side to use hunting as I get older it gets harder and harder to drag stuff around now, but the Thing is like a good hunting dog you just hate to lose her. I am going to work on her and get her some new fofraw, make her pretty and drive her this summer, I think she would like that, I know I would.

Went fishing down in VA this weekend, Web foot gangsta invited some of us down for a guided fishing trip, 5 of us total. We fished two sessions over two days and all of us limited out on some really huge rockfish, We actually threw back many over the slot but none failed to meet the min. length. I will have pics soon. Keep in mind that the pics show ALL the fish we caught, so don't go thinking we violated any game laws. Pics and story to follow this evening.

I have been away for away for a couple of weeks, my job gets very busy at this time of year and I love to Turkey hunt, so I have been slacking some here. But lets talk fishing for a min. Our friend the web foot gangsta lives like a stones throw from the Chesapeake bay proper and can fish the tunnels at Hampton Roads or the bay bridge from his Carolina skiff, immediately after work, every night of the week the weather cooperates. He has been slaying bluefish rock and flounder on the regular using Yazorri plugs and the moving tide to his advantage. Fat bull minnows, spot. ells, squid strips in various combination have been effective. Soon I will have a report from the bay and sea side of the Eastern Shore of Virgina on the coming on hard heads and Flounder from Gargatha and Watchapregue. If you like fishing out of Kayaks check out this guy Kayak Kevin. I meet him once at the ramp down at the Kiptopeake state park in lower Virgina and he is one extreme fisherman and extremely successful for a variety of reasons, Google Kevin up and see what I mean. Tomorrow morning is ground hog time!
