The fishing has been productive the last few weeks even with all the wind keeping us close to shore. We have primarily been fishing inshore and nearshore due to rough seas. A couple cobia have been caught on the rare day the wind lets us cover some water looking for rays or turtles. A few tripletail have been wrestled off the marker bouys and other areas within Port Canaveral.
Flounder have been the real treat recently with us catching a few keepers almost every trip. Most fish are 1-3 lbs but we have brought a few doormats up with a few pushing 9 lbs. We have been getting into a few snook during the right tides also. Port trips have had plenty of other species to keep the rods bent including sheepshead, bluefish, jack crevalle to name few.
I am really looking forward to a little more cooperation from mother nature allowing us to spend a lot more time offshore. Summer is soon to bring us favorable winds and calm waters for easy runs offshore. Cobia, tripletail, snapper, grouper and mahi will be common targets when the water warms up and the wind lays down.
