few questions...

what is the bait of choice?

do most of 'em get caught at the point or are the other ramps just as good...assuming there are nice 'holes'?

at the point...are the majority deadsticking or spiking the rods when fishing for cobes?

thanks for any info.

I ain't not expert, but this is what I do know. I fish at the point, usually on the hook. I use fresh bunkers and sometimes eels if I see lots of rays. And we're just deadsticking. Make sure to use the cobia sandspike. :D :p I haven't heard cobia caught anywhere else from the surf other than the point.

just to clarify....

deadsticking is when you're actually holding your rod after you've casted out...normally while your wading out...is that correct.

also thanks teo for your info.

deadsticking

to me is putting on the sandspike. I only hold the rod if I fish at the point and there are like 100000000 other people there. Nothing much.. I just watch what everyone else is doing and I'm doing the same. The point is not what most people describe is to be. Most of the time it's kinda fun standing in that congo line. :D

Teo's got it down..

Sometimes they are caught near Hat inlet as well as the point,but the point and south of the point seem to be the hotspots right now.. As far as bait,JMHO in this order:

Menhaden,Mullet,Bluefish..

One thing that wasn't mentioned.. Always have at least three rods available,locked and loaded at all times.. One for spiking or deadsticking as Teo said,one that will sling a three oz bucktail pretty far,that is for a possible free swimming cobe. One that will throw a 1 or 2 oz stingsilver pretty far.. Today we saw bonitas right in the surf,but no one was locked and loaded,Cdog almost made it in time..:D Many times you will see spainish or bluefish as well...

There were never any truer words spoken...locked and loaded prevents regret

Braid on baitrods may be frowned upon,but when it comes to throwing a lure,frowned on or not,it'll be braid... ;)
