    I was at CWB Friday and couldnt believe with all the gold people were wearing I couldnt scoop any. There was a huge cobia cruising the waist deep water. He made my hair stand up like Buckwheats. He had to weigh 80 or 90 pounds and had a smaller one swimming with him. Circled me twice within 6 feet so I got a good look. Heard people up and down the beach tralking about the shark that swam by. I thought he was a shark for a few seconds.

    PHEW! A cobia, I feel so much better now. I just did a little checking and would have to agree it was a cobia. Yeah, it was nuts, I even saw at least a dozen little kids wearing gold and silver chains. Oh well, there's always next time.

    In the water, detecting, watching the sights, scooping up some tunes....'Great day!"

    Great finds. You just cant beat this weather for detecting in the water.

    Not much happening here with no water machine right now. Its morning or night because you just cant detect with the crowds ON the beach. I was reading the paper this morning.... looks like CLB has had a few sting ray incidents this year. They were talking about what to do and how painful it can be.

    I saw the big one cruising with the smaller one on saturday morning. They have that shark kinda look and the way they swim too. Just prior I saw 2 HUGE spotted eagle rays cruising, I imagine the cobia were hanging with them or the manatee. Having caught quite a few I knew pretty much immediately that they were cobia, but the VW sized manatee that nudged my rear end gave me a startle before i realized what it was

    It's a great time of year. I can sympathize with being without your water machine. Hopefully that doesn't last too long. They usually have a bunch of people getting stung every year. The tourists don't heed the warnings and some of us who know better get complacent. I know I've caught myself on multiple occasions. It seems that just as I realize I'm not shuffling my feet and I restart, I see one darting away.

    Thank you Lorraine. My daughter is a fan of the peace pendant as well.

    If the critters play nice , then so will I.

    I've seen them on a few occasions. Now that I know what they are I feel better. I've only seen a manatee down there the one time. It didn't take long for the tourists to surround it. I checked it out for a second or two and got back to hunting.
