    Just a damn HOG... If I saw that beech floating by I'd probably piss myself & then hit him in the damn head (& spook him) w/my Jig...

    Wonder what would happen if that one was brought green into the boat? :)

    Yes it's legit! I believe that's the new world record for spearfishing if I'm not mistaken. Extremely impressive fish. My father landed one 103lbs some years back and I thought that was big...Little did I know what was out there!

    I had a nice size one come up behind my sashimi popper once...followed it straight to the boat but never hit :(

    If it's legit then it's the biggest Cobia I've ever seen, heard or read about anywhere in the world- ever...

    I read it won't qualify because it took 2 people to kill it. Still at least we know how big they really get now.

    Never heard nor seen of a cobia anywhere close to this size. Might have to make a trip to the location in Brazil at which is was caught. Definitely an apex predator.
