Incredible Drone Fishing for Cobia

  • Published: 11 June 2019
  • In this episode of BlacktipH, we use the drone to go fishing for cobia in Virginia Beach. Virginia has an incredible cobia fishery, and the drone helps to find these fish. Our cobia fishing adventure stretched two days, and we got to experience an incredible fishing opportunity called "Wake City." Wake City fishing is when the water is super calm, and you can see the cobia "waking" on the surface of the ocean. We caught a bunch of cobia and filmed some incredible content with the drone. Some of the cobia were mating/ spawning, and we were lucky to capture this with the drone.

          I love your channel, but can you please not hold the fish by the gills? It’s extremely damaging to them and they rarely ever make a full recovery.

                                                  I've never heard of cobia before. I've been fishing my whole life but fish mostly freshwater except for stripper and blue fishing on occasion.
