*Correction: 10/28/15* This was a Cobia…not Sharksucker Remora
Time/Tide: Morning/ High Tide around 8 AM
It was brought to Fishy Jackson’s attention that a glaring falsehood of sorts had been perpetuating for far too long. The Fishtilian had caught a juvenile Cobia on this day, yet would erroneously ID the fish as a Sharksucker Remora due to the rounded tail. As it turns out, juvenile Cobia tails are rounded as well when they’re under 8 inches long. In hindsight, this egregious false ID never should have occurred, as this would have been the first Sharksucker Remora in fish history without a pronounced suction disc. This should serve as a wake-up call to all…self-inflicted false fish ID’s are not something to be taken lightly, and can do a lot of damage to a fisherman’s mental and physical well-being if not rectified in a timely manner.
**Credit goes to the decorated Fish ID wizard AssociatedBoy, for the official proper ID of this Cobian Being, and the rectification of this Gross Oversight on behalf of Fishy Jackson.**
This fish aggressively attacked the micro bait after being spotted hovering oddly in the corner of the dock, and was brought back to the Chris Fishtank for observation. While a 5″ baby Cobia is a rather unceremonious first encounter with Cobious, the Fishtilian will be prioritizing hunting down an adult Cobia in Floridian Waters…or at least a teenage Cobia.
Results: 1 juvenile Cobia (#122), few Puffers, couple Snappers, 1 Sea Bass that spit up an unidentified fish
