Virginia Cobia on ESPN2 Valentine’s Day


The second of two ESPN Virginia fishing shows recorded this past summer will air this coming weekend. It will be shown Sunday, Valentine’s Day, at 7:30 AM on ESPN2. The show is George Poveromo’s World of Saltwater Fishing. This episode is about catching cobia. During filming, many cobia were caught while sight-casting, running buoys, and by chumming. I have not seen the final show yet so I do not know how much of each technique will be covered. The guest star, expert, or whatever you call him is our own Capt. Jorj Head. George Poveromo calls his featured anglers, his “A-Team”.

You can find out more information about Capt. Jorj and the rest of this year’s A-Team plus much more at:

For the two episodes filmed at Virginia Beach, there was an A-Team who made these shows happen:

Capt. Roger Burnley ran the Healthy Grin whenever I was on the Marc VI.

Charles Southall got the Marc VI where we needed it to be.

Cason Barco, at Inlet Station Marina, provided us with everything.

Without these guys, these shows would not have been possible.

The cobia episode will be shown again on the following Saturday, Feb. 20, at 6:30 AM.
