Above Average Cobia Catching OBX

2 posts in this topic

I had the opportunity monday to fish for some Cobia with Capt. Ben Shepherd http://aboveaveragesportfishing.com….stingprod.com/ out of Hatteras North Carolina.

We departed Teach’s Lair around 1000 hrs to a stiff cool NE breeze of 15-20 kts, air temp was about 52 and water was around 67 degrees. On board were Jon, Shaun, Jason, Captain Ben, his mate Lauren and myself. We fished a couple miles off shore from Hatteras Inlet to Hatteras Light, sight casting bucktails and live eels to Cobia schools and at sea turtles that were holding some cobia under them. It was a great day and we caught seven Cobia and kept four. Jon and Shaun caught a 45 and 43lb that qualified for North Carolina citations. It was a fun day with plenty of action, Ben and Lauren did a great job of putting us on the fish, Ben said he saw about 45 Cobia through out the day. We were back at the dock around 1700 and back on the road to Virginia with plenty of cobia fillets by 1800. I know what I am having for dinner! Here are some pictures.
