My wife and I fish together and it can be far to hard to get the cobia in the boat without the help of a gaff

Normally fish by myself, very hard to net a big fish.

The gaf is mandatory in getting the fish in the boat. Common sense.

there is already a law against keeping/killing undersized fish. We should be able gaff keeper sized fish.

I see no reason cobia that are being kept by anglers shouldn't be gaffed.

The netting of a large cobia, and then getting it into the boat under control, is very difficult.
