Cobia who? King mackerel is where it's at for area fishermen

If you are into the fishing scene, then I am almost positive all you are hearing these days is "cobia this" and "cobia that." It's like a virus is going around. I haven't kept count, but I swear there are dozens of cobia tournaments scheduled; and because I am a softy when it comes to these wonderful game fish, I wonder if our Port Royal Sound fish will be able to stand up to so much pressure year after year. But enough of that, because there is an alternative to cobia, and pound for pound they are as an exciting a fish to catch as any cobia -- no matter how big it may be or how strong it fights.
