Hilton Head, SC Cobia Fishing
We are in the middle of another cobia season here in the Beaufort and Hilton Head area. You can always tell when you go over the Broad River bridge and see 40 boats sitting on the rip. As it has been for the past two seasons the inshore cobia fishing is rather slow to say the least…I wonder if it has to do with everyone killing as many fish as they can while these fish come into the Port Royal Sound to spawn? For the past five years I have had a two fish per boat limit (rather than the state two per person) and now try to keep only the smaller males if possible. That aside, I have done some sight fishing in the river and found a few nice fish cruising over the past few weeks, but have done better over the offshore bottom areas. Offshore we have also been catching catching red snapper, sea bass, sharks among others.
