Captain Rich went back for some inshore yellowfin with Jimmy and Steve Wednesday night after having 2 nice fish last week on the night chunk. Things started off a little slow with trying to get live squid.. They manged to get some bait and sent them down.

Around 1:AM they were hooked up to what they thought was a brown shark with a cobia following him to the boat, then when they got him close to the boat they knew they had a big  cobia on the line. Capt. Rich hit him with a gaff shot but  the fish was able to pull out of it bending the gaff hook,  Capt. Rich got a second shot and the fish went nuts.  It took two of them to get him in the boat.

After having the fish weighed on a certified scale he topped out at 82lbs...just 5 pounds short of the state record.
