Experimenter Roy Spears, San-ford, N.C. tried unsuccessfully with cut bait, pork chop and wieners until biggest cobia took hook baited with hunk of country ham from boat's snack bar. Mowry's glasses recovered from stomach of 53-pounder. Brothers H. I. and Herman Attaway, Newberry, S.C., took hint, baited with ham and caught other two-weighing 38 and 18 pounds.
