Hey Fred!

Just read that you used braid as a shock leader. Considering it does not stretch does it work well, that is does it absorb the shock. Don't you think mono or floro of the same poundage would work better. Tell me coz I am getting my gear ready for the trip.

cheers

Hi Jeen,

Any Pics of the jig?

Common guys, what lures, tactics, jigs for Cobia.. would love to catch one in this season.....Please. :oops:

Bobby,

That boat in the 4th Pic looks little familiar ..... [smilie=think2.gif]


Was my first time on that bucket...I prefer spinning to inshore trolling though the latter is far more productive.

Hi Ken

I use braid as a shock leader only whilst trolling as incase of a hookup around reef structure or in the event of the lure getting stuck you stand a better chance of not getting cut off or yanking the lure out once you get the 100 lb braid in your hand .

When I spin I ALWAYS use mono with a leader though quite of few of IA Anglers prefer braid .

I find Mono releases more smoothly whilst spinning compared to braid and the smaller diameter braid say around 20 lbs is too thin in diameter and hence cuts pretty easily compared to 20 lb mono . This is my opinion and choice . SO this time when we meet in Hwar for the competition you can bet you see me using mono !!!!!!!

Finally I believe that its a matter of personal choice ...and I prefer Mono whilst spinning ..

H ,

Santosh, Here is a pic of some jigs known commonly as bucktail jigs. These are probably the most popular jigs for cobia.

sorry santosh( search on Cabelas for the pictures) My camera battery is down.

You just have to drop the jig down to the bottom and on touching bottom reel in with a jerk reel jerk reel motion. You can also cast these jigs and reel it in like a swim shad also with a similar action like the above.

Well if you expect to see these cobia on your trips and would like to be prepared. Then the best .. the guranteed method is to carry a tub full of ground sardine or mackerel in an ice box along with some fresh whole bait - ideally sardine. once you spot the fish , hang around in te general area where you spotted the fish and chum the water with the minced stuff and as soon as you see the cobia rising to the chum let slip the sardine on a single hook without sinker ........

Fred , I used to live in Kandivalli west 93 to 97. Dana pani was close to my place.THe fishing there was good . Another favourite place used to be Mandve island across gate way and on certian days during incoming tide the action used to be crazy ( fishing of course) :-)

Great going friends. West coast rocks are on my list for sure.
You guys are teasing me. Last time I went fishing (couple weeks back) I was freezing my Butt off.
