We had a blast fishing the Virginia Beach Tuna Tournament this year. The fishing was a bit tough but we were able to hold on to the few bites we got and ended up 6th overall and 2nd in the Small Boat Division. As always Bob and crew put on a great tournament and can’t wait to do it again next year!
This past Sunday we had to deal with less than favorable weather conditions. To start the day,
we decided to fish in the inlet while the rain storms blew through. That proved to be the right call, as we had a nice catch of reds and flounder. Our seasoned crew was tough, and they decided to charge the bay to try for bigger fish. That plan worked as well. We tried for spadefish to no avail, but we did manage to catch two Cobia. Barbara, pictured here, did a great job landing her first Cobia that weighed 30lbs. We will be fishing the Va beach Tuna tournament on Friday, and back in the bay on Saturday. The fishing continues to be outstanding. Don’t miss out on one of the best seasons in years.
We had a great day fishing with our two groups. This morning we caught some Cobia for the groom and his wedding party. This afternoon we found a school of big reds, and Rick caught a beautiful 83 lb Cobia.
She is a biggin. Tight fit in the 320qt cooler. Official weight to come.
Apparently, Ginny likes the same type of gold as her dad.
Despite less than favorable weather conditions, we had a great day Cobia fishing. This was one of several we caught today.
