Default Where to go for cobes?

I'll be heading out tomorrow for the first time in a year. I am in Orange Beach, and I was wondering if you guys thought it would be best if I started in P'Cola and worked my way back or what. Relatively new to cobia fishing. All I know is that I am buying a fly rod today and try to catch one. Anyone ever caught one on a fly rod? If so, what type of fly is best? Thanks for any help!!:bowdown:bowdown

My question is will you be able to see a cobia in the muddied Gulfwater I expect to see along the beaches this weekend?

for sure..... with this limited visibility i'd rig hop and jig. and also hook up and get a good chum slick going with a livie on a cork and on bottom. drifting over the the reefs/ fishhavens while chumming can also bring them to your boat. for sight casting.

Anyone ever try chumming with ground crab? I've got an old hand cranked sausage grinder I thought might work after busting them up a bit.

i dont know about east of orange beach but i came from west of fort morgan yesterday and once you get about a mile east of the tip of fort morgan it is just as green as it can be. some clear, some dirty green, but plenty of visibility.

yep, we've been finding good water 1/2 mile off the beach...

the fish will be on the rigs, but not with much consistency, give it 3 weeks, they will be stacked.

i would head east. again, i just came from waaaaaaaay west of fort morgan the other day and the rigs directly south of fort morgan were in pure mud. probably south at least 5 miles or so. around mile marker 3 or so, there is a double rig and a couple around it-they're in ok water.
