If you’ve never used balloons to fish for cobia, now is the time to start. You’re likely well aware of how fun it is to chase the species, which grow to impressive lengths and weights and delight anglers with at-the-surface strikes. But balloon fishing for cobia is one of the most effective and exciting ways to target the fish.
The Go-Anywhere Balloon Fishing Rig For Cobia
Aside from being one of the best fish as table fare on the planet, cobia are some of the gamest creatures to be chased anywhere. This explains why, during the summer months, anglers head out in droves to fish for them. Cobia—found from the Atlantic Seaboard to the Gulf of Mexico in the U.S., to South America, the African coast, Asia and Australia—are targeted by all manner of lures and baits.
But the most popular means of targeting the fish is with cut bait and live bait, which are ideal for use with balloon fishing rigs.
Since the fish are typically found near the surface during the warmer months, a balloon fishing rig is perfect for keeping cut bait or live pinfish high in the water column for hungry cobia. The problem typically posed by balloon rigs when chasing cobia is the fish are prone to taking long runs, making for quite a bit of hassle when an angler is forced to fight a balloon, swivels and such, in addition to the fish.
What’s more, as the fish gets closer to the boat and starts to jump and flail, the balloon can foul the eye of the rod, resulting in lost fish. All Excitement, No Hassle
With the Balloon Fishing Clip, fishing for cobia with a balloon is anything but a hassle.
Because the Clip, not the balloon, is fastened to the line, removal and installation of a balloon is a breeze. You simply insert the fishing line into the Balloon Fishing Clip’s line cavity, then insert an inflated balloon, and you’re ready to fish. Then, when you need to remove the clip, you press the line removal button and the balloon is free.
What’s more, the clip, which moves up and down the line to control depth, keeps your bait in the strike zone, no matter what depth the fish are hanging out in.
The clips are suitable for both freshwater and saltwater.
