Jimmy Cobb - Georgia, United States
Jimmy Cobb, age 55, is from Bogart, Georgia (near Athens-Home of the University of Georgia Bulldogs!). When work is necessary, he earns his fishing money as a Veterinarian practicing small animal medicine and surgery. He is relatively new to kayak fishing and his first experience was right here at Los Buzos in June of 2017. Since that time he has acquired 2 Hobie Outbacks and has fished inshore along the Florida panhandle for Red Fish and Trout as well as spending time on a local large reservoir fishing for trophy Stripers.
After that initial trip he came down twice more of which the last time during the first Los Buzos qualifier. He won this qualifier securing a spot for the championship final. He says best catches have all come at Los Buzos where he bagged trophy Roosters, big Tuna and Snapper to name just a few. A trophy Cubera Snapper, a Wahoo, and a 40 plus pound fresh water Striper remain at the top of his bucket list.
Jimmy owns one of the beach lots here in the Los Buzos area and has recently started building a house, so within the next few months he will become one of our (part-time) neighbors!
