38.0 lb. Cobia caught by Brian Shea fishing on Tuesday September 03, 2019 at 11:51 using a eel

I fished sea isle city today. I caught a 38 lb cobia on live eel, 5 sea bass up to 4 lbs on shrimp, 5 triggerfish on crab, a bluefish, 3 Spanish mackerel and 2 bonito on the troll.It was rough out there but well worth it. I also saw a huge leatherback turtle about 5 foot across.

This my first ever cobia. We were about 5 miles out over a wreck when a school of sharks were behind the boat. The captain yelled that there was a cobia mixed in with them. So I casted out a live eel and the cobia took it. That began an incredible 20 minute fight that took me around the boat 3 times with long runs and extreme head shakes. I was so relived when the mate was finally able to get a gaff into it. It left me sore but very happy
