It's Cobia season! And while we love to eat this tasty fish, many locals and visitors enjoy the sport of catching them. Cobia move in schools down the beach from Pensacola all the way down the Florida Gulf Coast to Key West, making these fish ideal for sight-casting. The Annual Spring Fling Cobia Tournament weekend offers anglers a chance to cash in on their catch from March 31, 2017 to April 2, 2017.

The World Famous AJ’s team hosts the tournament at the Destin Harbor. The annual tournament is the premier cobia event in Northwest Florida and attracts sportsman from across the country.
