Cobia is found in warm-temperate to tropical waters of the West and East Atlantic Ocean, throughout the Caribbean and in the Indian Ocean off the coast of India, Australia, and off the Pacific coast of Japan. It is dark brown in color, grading to white on the belly with two darker brown horizontal bands on the flanks. The cobia is normally solitary except for annual spawning aggregations, and sometimes congregates at reefs, wrecks, harbors, buoys and other structural oases. It is pelagic, but may enter estuaries and mangroves in search of prey. It's more conducive to conventional tackle with jigs and baits. Flies work to mostly fishing structure. They are big (up to and over 100 pounds) and are strong fighters.
