Cobia Fishing Challenge – Spearfishing VS Rod & Reel

In this fishing challenge episode of BlacktipH, we go offshore fishing for cobia with my buddies Wesley, Greyson, and Jason, and the goal is to see which technique will catch more fish, spearfishing or Rod and Reel! Our targeted species was giant cobia! We began the day by using live bait and bucktail jigs, bouncing them off the bottom. Greyson hooked the first cobia, and it was a monster, weighing around 55lbs! Shortly after, I hooked the next cobia on an orange bucktail. This fish fought hard and probably around 40-45lbs. Wes and Greyson decided to jump in with their spearguns to catch more than we did on rod and reel. We caught several more cobia using the rod and reel technique. Wes and Greyson were able to spear two more cobia, along with a black grouper that Wes had spotted. Overall the rod and reel caught more fish than the spearguns!
