Caught Aboard the:
The guys from Sweden first time deep sea fishing for a
half day catch Cobia, Kingfish, and hook a Sailfish
Today my fishing buddies were a group
of fellows from Sweden vacationing in Orlando and taking a break from
the ladies to go deep sea fishing for the first time out of Port
The first mission of the day was to do the usual search for
pogies and we were able to procure them fairly easily of of the beach in
Cocoa Beach. We then took off to 8A reef and began slow trolling the
pogies. First fish on the hook was a Cobia which was caught by Goran
Eriksson and unfortunately was too small to keep and was quickly
released to grow up. Fishing was pretty slow and the weather was a
little bumpy but in the end everyone caught at least one decent sized
kingfish or bonito. The highlight of our day was a shot at a Sailfish
that inhaled a slow trolled pogy and jumped at least seven or eight
times before he was able to shake the hook.
Final tally for the day:
5 Kingfish kept for the table
1 Jack Crevalle released to grow up.
1 Cobia released to grow up.
1 Bonito released to grow up
2 or 3 Remora released
Torbjorn bowed up on his first deep
sea fish, a Bonito.
A quick picture and then back to the
