Cobia Fishing

Cobia Large, Aggressive, Feisty, and DELICIOUS! Cobia can be caught Trolling, Sight, or Bottom fishing. They are strong fighters and can grow to over 100 pounds. These tasty fish are some of the most exciting to catch along the Florida shores. Cobia feeds primarily on crabs, squid, and other fish. Cobias like to trail larger ocean dwellers like Manta rays or Sharks in hopes of scooping up their scraps! Cobias are curious fish, and do not shy away from our fishing boats- and lures! PERFECT!

Due to the migratory habits of Cobia, it is important to have a knowledgeable Captain to take you cobia fishing! iOutdoor has the best Cobia Captain in the business, who knows how to catch these fast-moving-hard striking fish. Cobia spends the winter along the Atlantic Coast of Florida (December thru March) around the wrecks and reefs of the South Florida Keys. They begin their northward migration up the Atlantic Coast in late March and early April reaching Fernandina Inlet in early June. Along the Gulf Coast Cobia can be found in the Panhandle area in early March. They travel southward along the coast beginning in April and peaking all along the Gulf Coast in July.

Sight fishing Cobia is one of the most productive fishing methods; although there are many ways iOutdoor Captains will try. Again, depending on the time of year, water temperature, currents, etc. will determine the selected fishing method
