3 oz. normally...on windy days you might need a 4oz... with most piers being first shot rule ,a long cast is rarely needed....On Navarre pier,I take my longest rod and heaviest jigs.....they dont have first shot rule....I hope some fish show up this year,it has been the worst cobia season the last few years that I have ever seen....

If you see a cobia coming in,you call first shot....then only you can throw at the fish until it turns away from your bait/lure....Then its a free for all....

Also there is a disconnect between some people on when to throw on a fish that has "turned away" from a lure

It's going to take years to start the cobia stock to start returning. Killing all the big roe fish was never a good idea.
