Sarasota Snook and Cobia

 

 

On the one day we managed to get out on a boat in the salt, we had serious problems losing fish. Three big snook broke us off, but I managed to get one decent-sized one into the boat. Jodi caught a beautiful baby cobia which was a real surprise (in Sarasota Bay, in eight feet of water). We also landed ladyfish, hardheads, and gafftopsail. Weather was foul the rest of the trip, but fishing off the dock in the wind and rain I caught flounder, cats, puffers, snapper, and broke off on a big sheephead. NO GUIDE!
