I just finished up my 3rd year of medical school so I decided to spend the weekend visiting my folks and doing some fishing. I launched at Burnt Store Marina at 620 and was fishing by 630. I started the day with few smallish trout and a catfish all on top water. As the day went on it became more calm and sight fishing became much easier. I was able to run into what I thought was a group of pompano, but I believe I actually caught a juvenile permit. It was great fight and measured about 22"... I can see why people go to the keys for them.

I then continued covering water where I caught some trout here and there, but there were very few signs of reds or snook so I decided to head for deeper water to chase around some tarpon and cobia. About 20 mins in a boated my first cobia that was about 22" as well (not pictured) and then about an hour later I caught this 34" which I invited home for dinner!

Thanks for reading. I'll likely go out again tomorrow if anyone is interested.

Thanks guys. I went out again today and I got a handful of snook and some trout as well. For whatever reason the harbor was pretty choppy today even though it was really calm so sight fishing for cobia wasn't an option today.

I love that you can catch Cobia "on the inside" seemingly from Matlacha North to that Burnt store area although I have never seen one. Sean, did you say you were sight fishing those guys?

Yes you can see them easily when the conditions are really calm and sunny and they usually just cruise the outside of the sandbar. They look like sharks and are often right on top of the water.
