I just find it REAL hard to believe a 9 year old girl was able to land a 94 pound Cobia by herself without assistance. Just sayin......... Gary

The article I read said the dad hooked in and immediately handed it over her, she had a belt on. However, they thought is was a shark so maybe they didn't care so much if it broke off- and that's why they let her reel it in all the way. said it was about 20 minutes to get it to boat. He backed down on it a lot too-to help her with reeling it in. She done good...

I guess it would be possible if she was belted in a chair with rod in holder and Capt was chasing it. Not stand up with a beld though. Just my thoughts on my personal experience with Cobia and my 9 year old Son........Gary

Y'all just jealous cause a nine year old girl kicked your butt..................Good for her I hope she catches many fish. Congratulations.
That is probably right. I think she and the father driving the boat did good. I'm sure they have a video too. It will come out soon.

Gary- I hooked a cobia a few years ago that swam up to the boat and looked at me. It was a nice one and I couldn't get it to run. I was thrashing at it with the rod, try'n to get it to run but it was curious. I don't think it even knew it was hooked. I didn't want to bring it into the boat green so I netted it and hit it with a bat 5 or 6 tines on the head in the net, brought it into the boat, took the hook out and threw it in the cooler. After a few minutes it woke up and I had my wife sit on top of the cooler and she took a rodeo ride for 15 minutes. That sucker broke the hinges on a 120 qrt cooler and my wife hasn't been on the boat since. Cobia can give an angler a great fight but but there are times they can act very strange and not fight at all. What ever ya do, don't bring one in the boat green.....................
