Controlling the Cobia
Cobia are one of our favorite sports fish. Fishery management is about to begin nationwide control over the species.
This story is from The Outer Banks and is about efforts to regulate the cobia takes in NC Waters. We catch a lot of cobia here, and we have excellent regulations limiting and controlling catch. We do not currently issue "tags" to recreational fisherman allowing them to catch fish yet, but it's right around the corner.
Cobia regulations for recreational anglers for 2018 tops the agenda of the of the N.C. Marine Fisheries Commission meeting that continues Thursday at the Hilton Garden Inn in Kitty Hawk.
