you can sight fish them from mid march to about the end of may, just depends on the weather conditions during the winter, i think this will be a crappy year for them, after that you can pretty much catch them bottom fishing all the way through august-september, hell; i know people that have caught them in january... any type of live bait or jig works well, unless the fish is lock-jaw.... just wait until february, this place will be more crazy than a british soccer game.

damn right i caught the 2nd fish in both harbor walkand outcast cobia tournament 2 years ago on febuary 28 so like vs200b said it just all depends on the winter weather like how cold tha water gets, and if the water isnt warm then the cobia will tent to stay out deep and on the botton instead of in fairly close and up on topswimmin like a brown turd.

oooo gosh i cant wait for the time to come.

Getting my rig ready. 7' Teramar 15-30 class. Probably putting a Spheros 8000 on it. Gonna be fun. It'll be my first year cobia fishing in the Panhandle, I moved here from Orlando back in June.

we catch more cobes on the offshore platforms like 30-40 miles south of dauphin island as opposed to sight fishing on the beach; oh you silly silly beachcombers...that just becomes a giant cluster fuck once they start runnin. half the people dont know how to cast to them anyways and they hit the cobes right on top of the head and then they go down for who knows how long

How's that? You still see them, cast to them, hook'em, keep'em out of the rig, gaff it then eatit. All that without jackin off and running up and down the beach.

mmmmmm. Good 'ol days. The first cobe I ever saw was on the state pier in gulf shores. After I saw the chaos and the fish, so I upgraded from flounder fishing to flounder/cobe/king. I went out and bought a 706z and joined in, yep its a cluster for sure, saw a lot of nice fish scared away.
