Catchin’ Up with Maverick Boat Company

New and existing models featured at Florida media event

July 3, 2013
Cobia fishing was hot late last month, just off the beach in Stuart, Florida, during the Maverick Boat Company media event. Here, Sport Fishing‘s Scott Salyers (right) and Fly Fishing in Salt Water‘s Gary Jennings show off a couple of keeper fish, including an estimated 40-pounder — caught aboard a Cobia 296 CC, powered by twin Yamaha F300XBs. Maverick owns the Cobia, Pathfinder, Maverick and Hewes brands. Chris Woodward
The Cobia 296CC speeds offshore in a sloppy 2- to 4-foot sea with a helicopter and photographer in pursuit. Shooting these boats for the 2014 Maverick Boat Company brochures was one of the goals of the two-day media event, June 25-26, off Stuart, Florida. Marc Vaughn/Maverick Boat Company

Robert Schamblen from JL Marine (Power-Pole) fights a cobia from the foredeck of Pathfinder’s new 2600 HPS, powered by a Yamaha F300. Seas outside the mouth of the St. Lucie Inlet proved uncharacteristically sloppy late last month, but the 26-foot bay boat handled the seas like a bigger vessel. Chris Woodward
