Few things are as much fun as fighting a big cobia. We started out trolling today and put a wahoo and some gaffer dolphin on ice and then went to jigging. Headed to a spot where the cobia seem to stack up pretty good and stacked they were. We decked 8 cobia in an hour , most all of them came on GUIDES SECRET BUCKTAILS. Those bucktails have a rattle inside and the cobia couldn't resist. Busted off about 4 cobia when the hooks broke on the spro bucktails we were using after I ran out of the good Guide Secret ones. Also piled up some big aj's. As a bonus a nice fat cobia had a VA Saltwater reward tag in her. The cobia should keep piling up until they move in along the beach in mid May, so if you want some good fun and good eats come on down.
