This time, Henry is in the sportfishing capital of the world, the Florida Keys and he's fishing offshore for one of the hardest fishing game fish around, the Cobia. They're out in open water and looking for cruising Cobia on the surface. Upon spotting a fish, Henry quickly covers it, throwing a Ballyhoo bait fish into its path and the fight is on. These fish can't be horsed in, they're powerful and Henry needs to really take his time. In Fish Eye, we take a look at the Cobia, their range, feeding habits, appearance and most importantly where to find them. These fish can grow to over 100lb with the world record, a staggering 135lb and we take a look back to 2014 when Henry caught his biggest Cobia of 37lbs. Back to today and there's more big Cobia coming to the boat as the Henry's guest, Mark lands one after another. These fish are great eating too, with the firm white fillets perfect for grilling, pan frying or baking. For those anglers interested in catching Cobia, this episode is a great introduction to show you just how to do that, in one of the world's fishing hotspots for them.
