Port Canaveral Nearshore Fishing Report

Titusville - Saltwater Fishing Report

Port Canaveral Nearshore Fishing Report

Did not take a photo this week. These are photos from the files.

Sunday- Went canoeing with sister Cheryl, Tammy, Mike C., Jeff the crematory builder, and several others on the Econ. The water was high enough that Cheryl and I were able to paddle the canoe up on to the foot bridge that spans the river in the state forest. Because of the high water I didn't bring a rod, but Mike C. got one small bass in two days of casting.

Tuesday- Steve and Janice Murphy of Calgary joined me for some fishing on the Indian River Lagoon, he with a fly, she with a spin. The water is still kind of dirty, and kind of high, so spotting fish is hard. They were there, though. Janice, blind-casting with a DOA CAL shadtail, got a slot redfish and several trout. Steve only had one decent shot. Unfortunately it did not work. We all wilted shortly after noontime. The boat was on the trailer about one PM.

Thursday- Anton Faith joined me for some fishing along the beach out of Port Canaveral. The weather was hot but otherwise awesome. Early there were large numbers of fish near Cape Canaveral- bluefish, Spanish mackerel, ladyfish, and crevalle jacks. They were feeding on glass minnows. We did some damage with the 3/8 ounce Sting Silver from Haw River Tackle. I pulled out a seven-weight with a sinking line and a simple bucktail streamer and did some more damage.
We found some tarpon, feeding on glass minnows. They did not want anything we offered.

Friday- Scott Radloff joined me for some fishing along the beach out of Port Canaveral. The weather was hot but otherwise awesome. Early there were large numbers of fish near Cape Canaveral- bluefish, Spanish mackerel, ladyfish, and crevalle jacks. They were feeding on glass minnows. We did some damage with the 3/8 ounce Sting Silver from Haw River Tackle. I pulled out a seven-weight with a sinking line and a simple bucktail streamer and did some more damage.
We found some tarpon, feeding on mullet, just spectacular. They did not want anything we offered. Using a mullet, Scott jumped one that tossed the hook on that first jump, a battle that lasted about one second. It was the only one that bit. We did hook a couple of sharks. That was it.

Saturday- the Brinkman is running, smoking some Spanish mackerel and bluefish. I love to smoke those fish, and love the beach fishing this time of year. It should remain good through October.

And that is this week's Port Canaveral Nearshore Fishing Report

Life is great and I love my work!
 
Life is short- Go Fishing!
