State Record Cobia Caught


August 22, 2019


Len Andalis of Philadelphia reeled in the new state record Cobia on August 9, 2019. The fish weighed in at 90 pounds, 6 ounces, eclipsing the 20-years-old previous state record by 3 pounds, 6 ounces. The fish measured 66" in length and had a girth of 30". Len was fishing off his boat, the Francesca Rose, on the McCries Shoal when the fish hit while he was casting. Len was using a Conley rod and a Shimano 8000 reel with 17-pound line. A white bucktail with Sluggo served as the lure.
