Cobia, lost one after 42 minutes on a 7wt rigged for blues/spanish/gray trout, need about 8/10 more minutes.Smile

Blues, very willing.

Bonito still around.

Gray trout snapping in spots that have structure and 18/26ft of water.

Specks going off on coastal creeks.

Rockfish, may be in a foul mood at Weldon, but the Neuse/Trent is heating up.

Get out the long rods and have a blast!Smile

Good Fishing!!!

There you go bear hunting with a switch again. I'm sure that cobe was a blast in spite of the LDR.

Thanks for the encouraging report Chuck!

Had him with half of the 30ft sinking tip inside the top guide/tip top, probably 24/25ft from a legal release, but that 3 to 3 1/2ft leader on sinking lines doesn't give you much leeway.  Still had a blast!

Good Fishing!!!

Better to have hooked up and lost than no hook ups at all...
