Happy holidays from Drop Down Sport Fish Charters here in the oldest city St.Augustine Florida. Fishing offshore in December is one of my favorite months to catch some fat cobias. The brown clown will shop up this month on all the wrecks and large rock piles. Usually they will be hungry ready to eat but the 50lber might require a lil more game. Heavy spin tackle is fished most, 30-50lb line with 60lb fluorocarbon leader does the job. Have multiple rods ready because free swimmers are not uncommon. Just remember when measuring cobia it’s 33” at the fork of the tail, not the total length. Other deepsea fishing this month would include red snapper fishing since noaa opened another weekend December 8-11th. Let’s go fishing on Drop Down Sport Fish Charters! Call for reservations!!!
