Went after Cobia yesterday with a fishing buddy, we left out of Cocodrie. Following advice from an article in LA. Sportsman, we stopped at a platform just outside of Cat Island Pass and used bait shrimp to catch hard heads and kept them alive in the live well for Cobia bait. We stopped at several small platforms about 15-20 miles south of the Pass (40ft to 70ft water depth). Cut the fins off the catfish and tail hooked them with a little weight. It wasn't long that we had Cobia onboard, wound up catching 2 with some other hook ups that spit the hook. The picture is the 43 inch that we caught last. The bite seem to quit around 10:00 and with the heat bearing down we headed. Good times!
