Jurien bay cobia

 Cracker of a day yesterday off Jurien bay. Dhuies everywhere and had a surprise cobia take my jig as it was falling to the bottom, it had me guessing what it could be for about 15mins until we got it to the boat for a visual. I was convinced it was a stingray and was considering busting it off but I didn't wanna have to re tie my leader so stuck it out and so glad I did haha, went 19kg on the bathroom scales back home. Also had a horse sambo and some nice dhuies, all on 30lb gear except for the sambo which was on the 50lb.

No matter where we moved to we kept catching dhuies, so with 2 dhuies and the cobia already in the esky we figured we had enough fish and decided to head in rather then risk any more dhuies not surviving after release. Plenty of whales to keep us entertained on the drive back in.

An awesome day which has made up for loosing a horse Mackie up at gnaraloo a month ago which is still haunting me, but that's another story.
