Florida Wintertime fishing!
The nearshore and inshore fishing around Port Canaveral has been exceptional the last few weeks. It has not been uncommon to catch upwards of 50 fish in a half day trip. Just outside Port Canaveral has been very productive for sheepshead, flounder, pompano and redfish.
Offshore the bottom fishing has been consistent with good numbers of lane, mangrove and mutton snapper. Cobia have been found on turtles and rays along with a few that get a bit curious and come to check out the boat. We have also been catching good numbers of kingfish slow trolling with live bait offshore.
