Default Cobia

I have seen many reports of Cobia catches since the beginning of snapper season. Are most of you catching them closer to the bottom on live bait while fishing for snapper? The few I have caught have been under structure (where I could see them) or I have been lucky enough for one to swim right up to the boat! I haven't seen any so far this year and would love to hook one.

Mine have come from within 10 feet of the bottom fishing big live baits.

Caught one Sunday that was curious about the boat... for me, most of the time its a pin fish on a freeline that gets um... typically 50+ ft from the boat drifting in my chum slick

We caught one a couple weeks ago on a whole frozen cigar minnow on the bottom.

I caught this one at a rig close to ft morgan. It followed the wife's frozen cigar minnow up when she was checking her bait, right on the side of the boat. 3rd one we hooked the same way at the boat following up fish or bait.

We caught three this year during a 3 day fishing span the 1st week of June. The first one came up to investigate the boat and the others were caught deeper on accident.

Before this year, I had never caught cobia while fishing that early June week. Do you guys feel like they are around this year because the water stayed cooler longer, forcing a later migration, or am I thinking into it too much.
