First Cobia Caught in Orange Beach - Catch the Fever
There's a fishing frenzy along the Gulf Coast fueled by the news of the first Cobia caught on St. Patrick's Day in Orange Beach. The boat Killin' Time out of Zeke's Landing Marina carried the lucky anglers (not sure if they were lucky Irish anglers or not).
Captain Jeff Colley states they were fishing about 150 yards off shore just out of the Perdido Pass when they caught the 67 pound Cobia and one more smaller Cobia on spinning rods with jigs for bait.
Now's time to place that "Gone Fishing" sign on your door and head to the coast. Save 25% on a 4-night rental in a 1-,2-,3- or 4-bedroom condo or larger beach house during March and April.
