Snorkeling for Cobia

A recent snorkeling trip. My son got a cobia and I even got my daughter to come out for the day!

Now There is a picture to Frame and hang on the wall ! Nice!
Was that a captured frame from the film, or a still?

Re: Snorkeling for Cobia

I tried baked Cobia a couple of years back and it was amazing! The texture and taste was like eating Barramundi.
When the world can fly again, I propose a trade; a weekend diving here in So California on my boat for a weekend of diving out there on your boat!
Let me know if it interests you.

Thanks, that picture is just a screen grab from the video which I used for a thumbnail on youtube.

Caruso: Sure I will take you snorkeling (or even scuba if you want), but I don't have a whole lot of numbers.

I dove in Calif about 25 years ago, I would like to do it again,

Granted, I am not savy with the video, but that sure seems like one hell-of-a great screen grab!

Oh yea, looks like a great fish to have around, especially if they taste like Cobia. What I've learned with several fish species is that the dirtier the water, the 'muddier' taste of the fish. Although, I'm not certain this is for all species.

Edit: BTW JFJF, congrats on logging a day that your children will never forget.

If you have access to the spearfishing or diving in general and are not "into it", you probably aren't a very fun person in my opinion.


Nice fish and post!
