By far the top 5 roughest sea conditions I’ve ever fished for Cobia. We had hardcore Cobia fisherman(s) Mike,Dave and David out with us again these guys travel the many states to catch a Cobia and they spend a week here every year. It was absolutely snotty rough. Forecast predicted for the strong North East wintit to lay out after lunch time...... Once again, they were WRONG! It was so rough we couldn’t make it to where we’ve been previously fishing however, in the couple hou
Clouds, clouds, and more clouds! Man, what tough conditions to catch a Cobia. We had Robin and his family out with us for a full day Cobia charter. It was just one of those days where it was a super hard grind all day from the overcast skies to the rough sea conditions-just tough. However, we worked hard (really hard) and made it all worth it! We came across a lot of fish that were lock jaw many including one BOOWOW, just couldn’t get her to eat. Even in the tough conditions.
Out of the gate we were faced with some difficult cloudy conditions. Justin and the entire Maryland gang were ready-cloudy skies or not. We lucked up falling in the meat and capitalized on our shots. We caught our 3 fish limit quick-up to 48 inches. After having a great Cobia catch we decided to go after some Spadefish. We got set up and it was game on! Caught around 50 Spadefish keeping a limit with some JUMBOS mixed in with the biggest about 7 pounds! The clouds broke up an
To say it was rough would be a serious understatement. Forrest and his entire gang deserved to catch a 100 pounder to put up with these rough conditions! We all earned it and stuck it out and had an amazing day. We kept our limit of nice Cobia up to 46inches released more and pulled a JUMBO off probably 65-70lbs. I had high hopes to put them on a nice Spadefish bite but it was just simply to rough. Thanks for sticking it out and the continued business with Salt Treated Fishin
We had Joe and his two brothers out with us for a full day chasing Cobia. We got to the boat and the wind and the dark clouds put up a wrench in our trip. Re grouped and decided to hold off and see what the weather did so we went and grabbed some breakfast. A small breakup in the clouds gave us a little drive to go give it a try and I’m glad we did! Started off slow and a little irritating because the clouds made it very difficult. However, we fished hard and made it happen.
Weekend recap. Both Salt Treated boats stayed busy and did a great job keeping the fish coming over the rail and clients smiling ear to ear! A lot of fish around with steady action! Friday the Salt Treated took Pete out for a half day trip They stayed busy catching in the double digits of Cobia with keeping one at 43 inches. Pete made the 3 hour trip on his motorcycle so he said one keeper was plenty releasing the rest. Saturday it was tough, but we made it happen. We had Don
Fishing is off the charts! After telling the guys the report we had the day prior they were super pumped and ready to whack them! We had Billy, Ed, Ken and Robert out with us. This was their first trip with us and sheww was it special! Right out the gate Billy set the bar high, super high! We caught a WHOPPER on the ride out 63 incher that later weighed 69lbs!! The action really never slowed down. We caught many Cobia and nice fish at that! Everyone on the boat caught their f
Finally! The big bright thing in the sky finally came out to play! Its been hard to make it happen prior trips with the conditions but we’ve been doing it. Today couldn’t ask for better conditions or fishing. We had the Smithfield Station crew back out with us, Its been about 4 years since they last fished with us so it was great to have them back. Stellar fishing and it started right out the gate! We caught 13 Cobia total kept our 3 fish limit to 47 inches released them t
Tough conditions the last couple trips. We’ve really had to grind to scratch out good catches with the extreme overcast and cloudy skies. We had Ben and two of his employes out for a day away from work. We hooked a really nice Cobia out the gate probably 50-55lbs and after about a 10 minute fight right at the net she spit the hook. We recouped from that and got on a decent bite in the clouds we caught 5 Cobia and then went and caught our 5 man limit of Spadefish. Today we had
**Last minute opening July 19th! It was a good weekend of fishing on the Salt Treated boats! Lots of great fishing and great clients. Started the weekend off with having Dan and his gang back out with us. We had a large weight on our shoulder to try compete with their previous trip last season. Unfortunately, we were faced with some tough conditions. However, we managed to scratch out a good catch with multiple Cobias, bringing home a 45 incher and spent just a little bit of
I'd say John and Michael had an amazing two days of fishing with Salt Treated Fishing. Beautiful weather and plenty of tight lines! After having a bang up trip on day one catching big Flounder, Drum and Cobia I knew we had to keep the ball rolling. We headed out with full objective to get Michael on a JUMBO Cobia hopefully beat his dads 61lber just the day before. Not quite but very close! Caught 9 Cobia keeping two a 45incher and Michael's personal best 58lbs!! Congrates on
We have open dates, lets go!! Today was just one of those days that worked out perfectly! Had Michael and John out with us and their main objective was Cobia and fingers crossed to scratch a big Red Dum off their bucket list... We did it all and some!! Started the day off waiting on the clouds to burn off and got on a great Flounder bite with a beautiful class of fish. Had 3 pushing over 5 pounds and John got to catch his personal best just shy of 7 pounds! We kept 8 keepers
