Cobia season is still in full swing on the Broad River between Beaufort and Hilton Head. Captain Tuck Scott’s boat saw and caught three cobia yesterday, and the largest is pictured below. In the bright sun their boat ran over the big fish in 30 feet of water before they saw it. Captain Tuck whipped the boat around, and by then the fish had slowly moved off towards a grass line. Cathy Goodman of Virginia cast a live eel to the fish and it was on – over the next hour and a half Cathy fought it all on her own without any assistance. Weighing in at 50 pounds and measuring 50 inches this was the largest fish caught off Captain Tuck’s boat this year!
