Griffin Geddie, 15, of Duck landed this cobia after pitching a bucktail lure towards the fish swimming near the end of Jennette’s Pier in Nags Head.

It weighed 44.8 pounds and filled up a large boat cooler.

Geddie was thrilled because he had been putting in his time trying to get one for several weeks. The green and clear water temperature was 71 degrees.
