Default where are all the cobia ??

and why are they so FAR off shore this year ??? 2, 3 ,4 miles or more.. not many on the bar.. I think it could be the dispersant B.P. sprayed.. my buddy thinks it's all the fads built by tournament fishermen....

There is a tourney guy that puts or has fads put out yearly this time, Ive gotten the numbers for them befoe and they really didnt hold a whole lot of fish. You got a beter chance running the beach looking for them than fads i think, also if you get caught by the CG with anything that even looks like a fad your in trouble.

Fish Attracking Device aka FAD - The ones I've run across are constructed of tarp material and anchored on the corners suspend just a few feet below the surface . Some are pretty large like 20'x20' or greater.
Not good for the unsuspecting boater that runs across them entangling in their running gear. Day time, FADs can be seen from a good distance but night time can be a problem.

Don't think your crazy. I never heard of those before either...but I do find it interesting now that I have an idea about what they are.
