Default Cobia Blank

In your opinion, what is the best blank for Cobia fishing? A rod you can work and eel, live bait or a jig. Iíd like to build one before the season starts but donít know much about it.

I wish I sold things, I'd get JB to recommend them and be in business.

Might need a shorter, lighter blank for the boat. Gator is a good, durable blank that can cast a cobia jig a long ways. I have two 9 footers that I use on the pier, but like 7 ft-8ft stiffer rods for the boat. Check out the Phenix blanks

Fenwick 1389 or 1386, probably long out of production.

For a boat I would look into a Seeker ps85. Get Obie Hill from Fast Cast Custom Rods to build it for you. He will set you right
