ust got the Official Word on IGFA World Record Approval: IGFA World Record Cobia 74-pounds Women’s 20lb Line Class World Record
On June 11th I joined Jason Legg and Captain Rudy Lavasseur at Bubba’s Marina in Virginia Beach to fish for cobia in the Chesapeake Bay.
As I was getting a drink out of the cooler, I knew something was up when Rudy and Jason suddenly quit talking. I looked up just in time to see a huge cobia sunning on the surface about 20 yards away. I heard Rudy yell, “Julie, this one is your record!”
