Cobia season is open year-round and they are one of the more aggressive fish species in our region.
May through October is the best time of year to target cobia. They school in small numbers, ranging in size from 20 to 50 lbs. They are often caught around the shallow water oil rigs in late summer and early fall. During the spring months, they are caught deep.
Cobia are commonly caught with jigging techniques, along with chumming and some trolling. Most cobia are often caught alongside of red snapper, as the two species share the same habitats and structures. Cobia are exciting to catch as they break the surface, displaying acrobatics and fierce pulling.
