How to catch Cobia:
Line: FINS, Powerpro 15-30lb braided line
Leader: Seaguar Fluorocarbon 20-30lb
Bait: Live tamban, Blue runner, squid, prawn
Lures: Soft Plastic swimbaits, Bucktail Jigs
Hooks: 2/0 or 3/0 Circle or J-hook
Reel: Size 3000 or 4000
Rod: Medium to Heavy action
Tip: If you are planning to release the fish, never land on a cement or wooden deck as their fragile skin would peel off, causing harm to the fish.
Edit: Thanks for the tip, catfish
- Peace
