:argue:I got my first ever cobia tonight in Ocean City on the pier using cut bunker that i got from John Henry Bait and Tackle. I was talking to some tourists when i heard my drag start screaming. i ran over picked up the rod to make sure the hook was set and right when i did the fish took off. It was 51 inches long and 50lbs. The pier shack didnt weigh it so i ran down to jollyrogers and the weight guessing guy guessed the weight just 3lbs off. Here are a few pics i got. I will upload pictures tomorrow

congrats, nice fish. that is a pretty rare catch for up in Maryland. I think I have heard of 4 in 3 years. we catch more sails and dolphin off the piers here on the obx than you catch cobia on the beach/pier. prized catch.

you have enough to do several different things. try a few but here is what I usually do. cut up in 1 inch squares, shake in a bag with house autry fry mix and let it sit in the bag for liike 20 minutes letting the mix get on more and deep fry. easy, quick, awesome. one of my favorite eating fish.

Very nice catch! I'm sure you were targeting something large because that is a tough land from the pier. You never know what you're gonna get into around here. Welcome aboard!

You know, the more I read about this fish, the more impressed I am with the angler. I mean, you had to really know what you were doing to land that fish. Good line, good knots, good hook, good gear all the way around. And to be able to get that beast up on the pier!

Excellent job!:icon_thumleft:
