"i suggest something a touch smaller than that one".

Pete, listen to the Boss. When I had my cobe tethered, he looked at me and said: "see, be careful what you wish for".

Cutter, oyster toads are serious business. I spent 5 seasons trying to catch one. Scoured the Bay for most likely hang-outs. Finally caught one on a black clouser in St. Michaels harbor, about 3 blocks away from the house. I actually jumped for joy.

Deep jigging for sea robins is high sport, Dave.

John, I'm worried about you.

I'll settle for a big cobia.

I had my first shot at Tarpon this past week. I was in Marco Island area for work and got out early one AM with guide Capt. Zumfelde. I caught several snook and jacks and wanted a shot at tarpon. A very patient game I learned. Waiting for a roll or sign of one and then quietly polling over to area last seen. Water was cloudy so made it more difficult. A 90 pounder rolled about 70 out into a slight wind. My cast landed at 65'. So she looked.... moved a little... and then dove out of sight. 5 more feet. Apparently for tarpon it has to be right on the fish or just past. I was so excited I just pushed cast too hard and of course this caused a lack of power and oh well. Maybe next year.

I will be in OBX as I am every year in August. Have fished with Sarah or waded or Yak'd the last 7-8 years and caught redifish, trout, flounder, blues, stripers, etc so want to kick it up a notch. We tried for spinners last year but no luck.

So Sarah if you are listening - I would like to catch a spinner on a fly as well as a cobia, spanish, or kingfish.
