Default Shooting Cobia near Pensacola Beach Pier

Has anyone tried shooting Cobia near the Pensacola Beach Pier. I know that you will need to be 100 yards away from the pier and the beach, but I also know that a lot go by the pier without biting.

"Choot 'em". Sure, perfectly legal!

How do you plan on entering the water? From boat or beach? Then what? Just swim around and wait for one to come by? Or spot one and dive off the boat after it? They give a heck of a ride. I've shot a 94lb amberjack that didn't beat me up as bad as a 30 lb cobe did.

Also, make sure you are more than casting distance from the pier if you do this. Way more than 100 yards. People will 100% try to hit you with weights and jigs.

The OP is talking about using a firearm to "choot 'em".

I think it's a great idea. Anchor up 105 yards off the East end of the pier and enjoy.
