Cobia happen to be one of my favorite fish to catch. The fact that they can pop up at any moment, even while fishing for other species, keeps you at the ready. They can either be dumb and hungry (my favorite) or they can frustrate the heck out of you by refusing to eat their favorite items. Sometimes we have to resort to “free gaff” methods and this truly is my favorite. This video shows an unusually thick amount of cobia, but then everything seems to be unusually thick in Louisiana.
