Spring at Cape Canaveral offers a northern migration of cobia following the 70°F temperatures as the winter gives way for warmer waters and traveling gamefish. Typically, Canaveral's spring run of cobia are during March & April, but that depends on when the release of temperatures happens as the cobia follow 68° - 72°F as that temperature moves northward up the eastern seaboard.
Sightfishing is the preferred way to pursue cobia but they can be caught livebaiting around reefs & wrecks during this time period too. In this video you'll see one cobia being reeled in and another getting hooked up with Captain Brent Hancock on the gaff. It's always fun when you're out on the water, but the spring run of cobia is probably one of the most spectacular times to fish on the Space Coast.
