Beaufort SC Broad River Cobia fishing from a kayak

I decided to focus on some Cobia fishing recently. I am completely new to it. Out of the 4 trips I have taken I have managed to land 1 Cobia. My 1st Cobia! I caught it on a Live whiting that I caught with shrimp. I floated the whiting on a cork into some bait being attacked on the surface and it hit. Had another day where I sight casted at 2. One hit my lure and was off in less than a second and the other was just to fast to get a good cast at it.

Here is the video I made of the day catching my 1st Cobia:

And here is the playlist of videos I made of the less successful days:

Hahaha. I’m a subscriber to your channel so I saw the video before you posted it here.

Congrats on your first Cobia. I have a lot of firsts coming my way as well.

Loving this salt life!

Hey, that is awesome! I’m a kayak fisherman as well and can imagine how much fun that must have been reeling in. Never caught a cobia, might have to come down and check out the Broad River if I ever start fishing again.

"Apathy is the Glove into Which Evil Slips It's Hand", but really, who cares?

Very cool! I woulda lost it(the Cobia) after coming out of net. Well done.

FYI, not that you’re keeping, but 36" FL now.


Way to Juke em’!:+1: Never targeted those guys but have caught one about half that size on accident once. To catch one intentionally from your yak is pretty cool!

Great job Juke! And awesome video. I’m subscribed now.

The folks at Beaufort Boat and Dock Supply told me last Saturday that Cobia were illegal to keep during the month of May. It is open now and I think they have to be 33 inches fork length.

I would check to make sure this is accurate before you keep one.

Closed month of May. 36" FL


That was awesome…and pretty ballsy to be on the Broad in a kayak!
