Nearshore cobia with Life on the Water crew


Nearshore cobia provide good fight and table fare

Catching cobia isn’t just a springtime activity, especially for anglers fishing out of Charleston. Capt. Ben Powers and Ethan Levine catch these fish all the way through the fall. Z-Man’s TRD on a heavy jighead is one of their top lure choices, and they show why in this video.

When not creating video for Life on the Water, Powers is owner/operator of Reel Time Charters, and fishes for everything from inshore speckled trout to offshore grouper.
