Riding the bag!

Postby chessieman » Wed Aug 12, 2009 5:55 pm

How long do you give it usually ridethe bag, if its slow ? Coming down sunday night with buddy & boat, want to try carolina style chumming for cobias. Are you looking for wrecks to drift over or shoals when you are looking for them down there? We have some spots marked on map but figure i ask for any advice or thoughts on the matter.

sorry to report VERY slow but that could change. This time of year look for tide lines are the best. Southeast of the inlet on Platt Shoals would be a good place to start if the water is about 75 degrees. I chummed Monday for 9 hrs and had 1 shark bite. Also i would look off the light house in 80 feet of water if the water is warmer than 75 degrees start there. Cobia are scattered so covering ground will increase your chances. I usually take 6 blocks of chum for a day of chumming
