Finally a cobia makes its way to my belly!
Finally a cobia makes its way to my belly! 4-15-2012



Some more beautiful weather along the South Mississippi shores has finally produced a nice keeper cobia for the Biloxi Ms. charter boat Whipasnapa. Big reds, sharks, jacks an piles of spanish and King mackeral, entertained as we anticipated the next cobia to come up the chum slick, or for the screams of the reels to get everyone's ol ticker ticking at a very dramatic tick.

Only one problem, 2 of the cobia, happened to show an hit at the same time!That didn't work out so good. One eluded our attempt to capture the beast. But luckily (I suppose) it was the smaller of the two. Sure felt good to give out a round of ol high fives thou. Just breaking the ice was a great feeling. Especially since it seems I was getting to be one of the last to catch one. Yeah, trust me these fellows round here, they like to rub it in. Especially; when it comes to the cobia. They all ask me 'You get one yet? You caught any cobia?' Well we have caught 4, which 3 were just short of making the 33inch mark. Anyway a nice fat 42 lber(has give us some redemption) an did make for some surenuff :)s. O an some happy belly's 2.

Another nice 40 come up through the master chum slick about noon. Which the other action was about 7:30, not long after we anchored. So quite some time had passed before the next sighting. Yes, just a sighting, passed just feet from the boat in the slick 4 times. Yet no one could entice this madame to take their offerings.

The spanish on the lil light tackle spin cast helped pass some time,an were surenuff the :) producers. A bright chartreuse jig bounced around in the chum, produced an exhilarating drag ripping run bout every time. A free lined poggey or croaker drifted back a little further(in the chum slick) would get the ol mighty Kings attention also.

The winds picked up on the weekend, which kept us inshore for one, an actually grounded us Sunday. The crew sat. did manage a good mess of whitetrout, Sheepshead, blackdrums an ground mullets. They elected to take a variety sampler (of the catch) to one of our favorite lil restaurants and have it cooked up for lunch. They only had 2 thumbs but gave it 4 thumbs up.. Sorry the pictures are down a little someone dropped the camera in the live well!! : (





what you waiting for here is your invitation:





Getcha self on down here, load up on the dang ol' WhipaSnapa an let's get it on!!!





Many thanks to all and God Bless!!!!
