How-to: Filet a Cobia

Cobia have long been captivating anglers for both their adrenaline pumping fights and also their delicious firm white meat. Seasonally abundant from Virginia all the way down the East Coast and into the Gulf, anglers look forward to chasing these wily Pelagics all year round. Cobia fishing requires both patience, and at times a very high level of skill, but the reward is certainly worth the long hours on the water.

In this video, BD Outdoors Pro Contributor, Captain Scott Goodwin, demonstrates how to filet and process a whole fresh Cobia that was caught in Central Florida. He uses the Dexter Outdoors Dextreme filet knife – a great option for filleting those fish with thick skin or tough scales, as it allows you to keep your fillet edge sharp by providing a second serrated edge to cut through portions of the fish that would otherwise dull your knife. Check out this video to see how Captain Scott utilizes each edge of the knife to make quick and easy work of this Cobia.
