Date: 01-07-2020 Time: 1800 hrs. Rod: Penn Slammer 10.6ft. Reel: Surf Master 30 Rig: Long Snood Bottom Feeder Bait: Fresh Herring
After work go for a short trip. Tide is on the way up, full around 2000 hrs.. Current flow is smooth. Only a strong southern wind blowing endlessly.
Jig for some fresh bait and cast out two sets of tackle on bottom feeder rig. A while later while i was jigging for more baits, a friend come along and saw my rod tip rattle. He call for me and before I pick up the rod, the reel screech. I strike hard and the fish swim inward. Very fast it surface up. A cobia was floating on the water while i wind back. I grab hold of my leader and haul it up the jetty. Estimate around 2 to 3 kg in weight.
