Port Canaveral Offshore, last week or so combined report.
Port Canaveral Offshore past week of fishing
A few trips combined into one report over the past week or so. The last 4 trips we have found Mahi, though not in large numbers or size, but we have found some. We have found a lot of small schoolies, which bodes well for next springs migration North, when they will be nice sized. The water and fishing conditions have been as varied as they have been all year, and we are still finding pockets of cool bottom, and fish out of their normal locations.
While fishing for AJ's with both live bait and speed Jigs, we've hooked up Snowy and Warsaw the bottom.
Mahi have been in as close as 70' and Sailfish even closer to shore.
Other Mahi have been caught while dragging lines in clean weedfree waters.
A lot of Vermillion have been found, which is nice now that they are open year round for us, but at only a 5 per person limit,it makes a short target speceis.
And Cuda are finally showing up on the troll. We found them on a few wrecks, but the cooler waters all summer has them much more scarce than in previous years.
In all, the fishing is still what we have seen all year, with hot and cold bites from day to day. At least the weather the past few days has allowed for some of the smoothest days on the water this year, allowing some high speed runs to the fishing grounds!
