The cobia is one of the largest fish caught on the pier and are caught during the summer months when the water is warm. Cobias are caught mostly on live bait, (bluefish or spot), on a float or kingrig( the name kingrig derives from the fact that the rig is also used to catch king mackerel). It takes a lot of patience and determination to catch cobias, because you may have to try for days or weeks before you get lucky, so kingfisherman spend a lot of time
gossiping, drinking beer etc... But if you catch one you are rewarded with some very tasty meat, especially
when marinated in Zesty Italian and grilled.
