COBIA / LING / LEMON FISH

COBIA / LING / LEMON FISH
Cobia (also Ling & Lemon Fish) are found inshore and nearshore. They can also be found around bouys, pilings & wrecks. They are “sight” fished which means that they are spotted and cast to from the tower of the boat. The mate in the tower spots the fish, casts a variety of artificial lures and live baits to the fish. Hopefully the fish will go for the bait and get hooked. The mate will then pass the rod down to an angler and the fight is on. A 60 lb Cobia is not uncommon. Cobias don’t always happen but when they do it is a blast!

Catch them March – May but stragglers are always around.

Bag limit: 1 per person or 6 per vessel.
