Q&A: Sight Casting to Cobia Along the Florida Panhandle


I am a cobia fisherman from Panama City , FL. I’m interested in your recommendations for sight  casting to cobia.  Please advise.  Thank you.

Sight fishing Cobia may be the most exciting way to target these fish. Our best selling soft bait eel for cobia is our Hogy 10″ Original paired with either The UnWeighted or Weighted Swim Bait Hook. Unweighted is the most deadly in terms of action but can be difficult to cast. For that reason, many anglers switch to the weighted version of our swim-bait Hook.
