On another note, where is the best cobia fishing?

As the weather gets warmer, the fish will approach inshore inlets. On the Gulf coast, Cobia can be caught year-round, with two peak seasons that produce the best results: Offshore waters around the Panhandle (early spring) Closer to shore all along the coast (summer months)

Besides this, how do you target cobia? Cobia can be caught on a wide variety of lures. Topwater plugs, suspending and diving crank baits, and imitation eel lures all catch fish. But the favorite cobia lure is the cobia jig. It is a large bucktail jig weighing 4 to 8 oz or more and can be just about any color you can imagine.

After all, what size hooks for cobia?

5/0 to 9/0 circle

Do cobia fight hard?

Once hooked, a cobia fights as hard as a bull bucking a cowboy. The life history of coastal pelagic cobia might not be as studied as some other game fish, but what is known might surprise you — and catch you more fish.
