If BREAKING the rules ( ESPECIALLY 6, 7, & 8 ) and having to relearn them over and over makes someone a "guru," than maybe I'm a "guru?" :smt102 :lol:

Complete joking aside, just think I'm one of the few who has avidly (and maybe stupidly) shared reports with cobia catches, but am FAR from being any better at it than numerous other folks on the board...
Woopty, Silverking, Salty Gator, Harmsway, just to name a few and am CERTAIN there are unnamed others too. :beer:

And not even much of a fisherman AT ALL so far in 2020... darn 'Rona has made business one big MASSIVE headache. Marine's Dream hasn't been splashed with a single drop of salt this year. :smt010 Praying to change that soon.

Easiest way to catch cobia around here is definitely to anchor up somewhere and fish for something else. When you see the cobia show up and swim by the boat jump in and shoot 'em with a speargun.

Very true!

Sit out near structure for a while and they'll find you.
Make all the racket you want too!

Chum and use the biggest pinfish you can get.

When someone hooks up, be ready with a bait for a follower, they are usually the bigger fish.

Hold on!
