Been making the run to the Broad River for some cobia the past2 days, the shots have been there but the hookups were not. Today was the day with a 30 lbs fish the fly in one of the best cobia bites I have seen. We had a second fish eat and we just missed the hookup. Also in the mix today was triple tail and reds. The cobia bite should only get better as the water temps rise a few degrees
Been hitting the Hilton Head and Beaufort area for some great fly fishing for reds and cobia as of late. Today we looked for cobia with perfect conditions, and found what we were looking for. This was the first cobia for me and my customers for the season and I was pumped. Firstt cast, a bit short, second a little off the third cast was on the mark, this fish was between 40 and 50 lbs and was hungry for the fly! Only problem as soon as the fish was getting ready to eat a f-18 comes booming over head and spooked the S..t out of the fish. Better luck tomorrow. On a brighter note we have had some great red fishing on the fly around Beaufort I have added a few pics hopefully some cobia pics soon.
