Question: I saw one of your guys using the 5″ Flounder for cobia. Really? How do I rig this thing?
Answer: The 5″ Flounder for cobia is no joke. They hop all over that thing. Guys are rigging them on the 2oz Barbarian Jigs. Just pitch it near cobia you’ve sited and let it drop. They will follow it down. Cobia tend to hit it just as you lose site. Often, It’s just a little tap. Reel down as you set the hook incase there’s any slack from the fish picking up the bait.
Question:What leader do you recommend for cobia?
Answer: These big bruisers go nuts when they are near the boat. We recommend 60lb flouor, tied direct to the soft bait with a loop know for maximum action.
