Cobia Question

How close inland do the Cobia actually get? I am interested on getting in on the action but don't want to travel too far offshore in the 21 ft bay boat. We usually fish our of COCODRIE but we are not opposed to position ourselves geographically for success. Thank you in advance yall!

Cobia can be found along the coast now through October. You'll have to find clean water and bait fish. Depending on the weather honestly it's not unusual for them to be right up on the beach feeding and I usually sight fish them.

Along the coast anywhere you can find clean water. South Timbalier gets deep fast so on windy days (like this coming week) that's a good place to start.

Wow guys thanks!!! I had no Idea they came in that close! I went offshore for tuna with my friend about a month ago and caught my first Cobia. We were like 40 miles out of Grand Isle. Man they are a great fight and some great table fare!!!

So no real certain depth to start looking for? I mean we have rigs in Cocodrie in 15 ft of water but I wouldn't think they would be that shallow. But then again I have no idea.

They get against the beach and people confuse them with sharks. Shallow as 3 ft I've seen them cruising.

Here are some good tips from a recent article with Capt. Tommy Pellegrin out of Cocodrie: http://www.louisianasportsman.com/details.php?id=11262
