Cobia reports 08/20/16

Cobia are thick on the Cape Haze bar, Steve and friends had a blast, catching them. that’s the good news, the bad is they were all short no legal size, Good News the Cobia have started moving back and if they hang around they will be legal size quickly.
New Penny Gulp shrimp on a gold jig head is what they were using to catch them. 3 inch size.

    Good Day Fishing Franks, I have the following report for your use from Lemon Bay and in front of Stump Pass.
    Dear Fishing Franks August 21st Fishing report
    I hope this report finds everyone safe and in good health. We had a similar week, like last week. The bait is still inside stump pass inlet and the trout were there as well, hitting shrimp on a popping cork and a 1/8 oz. green jig. We found placing the hook in the tail section is working the best.
    Just out front of the inlet we are finding small sharks, and a wide variety of small (non-keeper) fish. The best areas are around the bait, and crab traps, or the keeper and larger fish.
    The best area to find larger fish was in 25 feet of water. We found large schools of green backs and Sardines. Using a Sabiki rig we were able to diversify the bait options and this produced Bonita, Spanish Mackerel, Cuda, and some larger sharks. Try to use fresh fish on top with a float and a three foot 90 lb. leader. Put two on the bottom and one free lined. If there is no bite on the bottom two, change one to cut bait. These different ways to fish will give you the most variety of fish brought to the boat and when you identify the bait and fish caught as you favorite, change them all over to the best rig.
    In closing, we would like to remind everyone that the weather is ever-changing and needs to be watched. Having an app for your phone is a great way to see the direction developing storms are moving. However, they have their limits, and a signal only goes so far out. As the fishing day heats up, we tend to be so focused on our customer’s needs; Bait, tangled lines, removing fish, and baiting hooks, that we lose sight of the sky around us. So take a few minutes and look around you and try to track upcoming thunder storms and have more than one way back to shore.
