Chesapeake Bay Cobia Fishing Techniques

By:   |   Jul 08, 2018   |   Views: 14   |   Comments: 0

Among the largest game fish of the USA, cobia are highly sought after when they migrate into the waters of Chesapeake Bay. Each spring, large numbers of these beautiful fish enter the lower Chesapeake, providing a challenge to anglers from Virginia ports.

Cobia are striking fish, with striped flanks, large pectoral fins and a deeply forked tail. The fish have brown backs with a black stripe along the lateral line and white undersides. They have a wide blunt head and large mouth. Although most fish are 15 to 30 pounds, they can reach weights of 100 pounds or more and lengths approaching 6 feet.

Cobia fishermen use a variety of outfits, depending on the type of fishing. Some anglers may choose light outfits, while others employ stronger gear as these fish can reach weights of 100 lbs. For sight casting baits or lures, most anglers use a spinning or bait casting outfit in the 20-30 lb range.
