This Week's Report

Just like the tide, fishing conditions near-shore along the beach out of Port Canaveral has changed. In my last report the water was warm, the seas were flat and the fish were happy and hungry. Well, although we did manage to catch some respectable fish this week, the water temperatures are dropping from the low 80's to the mid 70's, live bait (pogies) was harder to find, and the kingfish have disappeared. In addition, the sea state has increased from the flat calm summer doldrums to a steady 3 to 4 feet which is forecasted through Saturday. There are still some good reports of tarpon and big jacks along the beach, and hopefully conditions will settle down in time for the holiday weekend.

Mikes Beach Bonito

On Sunday I had the pleasure of fishing with my good friends Mike and Becky from Orlando, and although the bite was slow, the quality of the fish we caught and the gorgeous weather made the day worthwhile.
