Cobia is also referred to as “lemonfish” or “brown fish.” It is a favorite, among anglers, along the Mississippi Gulf Coast and across the Gulf of Mexico! Cobia fishing is sometimes intimidating, at first, because it is a big fish with a reputation to match. As Captain Jerry McClure approaches buoys, markers, boats, rigs, etc., he keeps a watchful eye for these demanded but elusive fish. When cobia are spotted, baits go quickly into action!
Biloxi Bluewater Charters catches cobia with artificial lures and live bait, like eel and croaker. Cobia usually cannot resist, when tempted long enough, and they strike! The average size of cobia ranges from thirty to sixty pounds, but they do get much larger. These fish are found beyond the Mississippi Sound for about half of a year; but, remain in the Gulf of Mexico year round. We are very fortunate that cobia remain here for such a lengthy period!
