Virginia Cobia Charter

Virginia Cobia Charter

Today we had a Virginia Cobia Charter out of Norfolk, Virginia. We departed out of Vinings Landing Marina in Little Creek Marina at around 10 am. With our hopes in landing some big Cobia we set out into the Chesapeake Bay. Half way to our first Cobia fishing spot we spotted our first big Cobia and managed to catch it on a Bucktail. After catching our first Cobia we knew it was going to be a excellent day of fishing. As we were looking for other Cobia on the surface we ran across a few giant Red Drum schools on the surface. We were able to catch a few of these Trophy Size Red Drum. Our Cobia fishing charter was off to a great start. In just the first our of fishing we already were catching Trophy size Cobia and Red Drum!

A Virginia Cobia charter is one of the best fishing charters you can do. These giant Cobia migrate up the East coast and spawn in Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay. Cobia of all sizes are in Virginia ranging from 10 pounds all the way up to over 100 pounds! Early in the season around May and June it is one of the best times to target big Cobia. They are aggressively feeding on many bait fish such as SpotCroakerMenhadenBlue Crab, and many others smaller fish preparing to spawn. On our Virginia Cobia Charter we use top of the line fishing equipment such as Saltist ReelsShimano ReelsShimano RodsRainshadow RodsPower Pro Braided lineAnde mono filament Leader, and Owner hooks. Also when targeting Cobia we use fresh baits. American Eels, Croakers, and Menhaden are usually great choices of bait.

On this Virginia Cobia charter we ended our day with a limit of Cobia ranging from 30 to 60 pounds! Everybody on board the Cobia charter went home with fresh Cobia and great pictures. Be sure not to miss out on the incredible Cobia fishing Finao Sportfishing has to offer.
