Be on the lookout for tagged cobia in the northern Gulf of Mexico. CCA Alabama contributed $40,000 in 2019 and 2020 to purchase 12 GPS tags for the University of South Alabama. The final tag was deployed in September 2021, and the tags are set to pop off and transmit their data in 2022. If you catch one of the tagged cobia, we ask that you get some pictures, measurements, and, if possible the tag number, and release the fish. As a reward for releasing the fish, CCA Alabama and Daiwa are offering a 2022 Daiwa Certate SW 8000-H Spinning Reel with a value of more than $600.
