What started out as an offshore trip turned out to be much more for Scott Brooks as he returned to Indian River Inlet with both a yellowfin tuna — plus a Delaware state record cobia weighing 89 pounds, 3.2ounces. According to the Field & Stream post, Brooks was on his way in when schools of bunkers were spotted off a beach close to the inlet — and he threw a bucktail jig into one of those schools before being surprised by the 63-inch cobia.
