Catching a Potato Cod

1453274_556212694472870_1343785419_nHad a great day out today with a family from Newman. We didn’t bag out but we got some good quality fish – 12 Spangled Emperor, a 14 pound Red Emperor caught by one of the young girls and 3 nice Cobia.

We also hooked a 60 to 70 pound Potato Cod. The Potato Cod are a protected species, so it was released.

There are some more great photos of the Potato Cod on our Facebook page.
