Cobia are a really special fish and are one of the bigger fish caught here in Tampa Bay. You can find them in a number of different places through out the year and are usually any where from 20lbs to 70lbs. We still use light tackle to catch these big fish and the fight can be like fighting a tarpon lasting sometimes up to two hours.
These fish are so strong that you almost always have to chase them with the boat or they would take every bit of your line and leave you standing on the front of the boat wondering what just happened. These fish have to be 33" to the fork of the tail before you can keep one and make a great fish to have for dinner. It only takes one of these big guys to feed your entire neighborhood.
