VIDEO: Cobia Tube

MOST boats these days are equipped with some form of live well or tank for keeping bait or smaller fish alive for periods of time using water pumps or aeration devices.

Ever thought how good it would be to keep larger species alive while out on the water? Preserving your catch for freshness or until you get something bigger, or even while you set up your camera gear for photo and release.

This YouTube video clip demonstrates the “cobia tube”, invented by Florida angler John Boggs.
It’s designed to keep cobia alive during comps etc. and comes in two sizes – a 5ft bag for cobia to 75lbs (approx 34kg) and a 6ft version for fish to 150lbs (approx 68kg).

Simply attach a washdown or livebait pump to a hose connection at front of bag, put a large fish in the other end and buckle it shut. Water then floods into the bag and flows out and into the boat’s bilge or scuppers, keeping the fish alive.

Could this be used on Australian species like barra, jewies, kings, big flatties and maybe even snapper along with our own cobia? What do you guys think?

Here’s a more in-depth look at the Cobia Tube or further details HERE
