Headed out of Port Canaveral w/ D, Chiung and Scott. After resolving some interesting motor issues, we were off to the north. 1st stop was at a wreck, I told Chiung that this wreck usually holds some decent fish. We dropped off the boat and I basically fell onto the back of a ray with 3-4 Cobes, 1 was much bigger than the rest so I took him, got a good shot but he took me for a ride all the way to the bottom. After 5 mins Chiung and I were able to finally get my spear back and send him up. We guessed 50+ pounds but no actual weight.

Next stop was some natural bottom, where Scott got a nice Gag and D loaded up w/ Mangos and Flounder. Chiung and I followed w/ more of the same.

Hit another wreck later in the day but no one was really home, Scott saw a nice big Cubera but couldn't get a shot. Fish were plentiful all day and we killed it. Found a couple different lobster honey holes but of course couldn't capitalize. Had to filet fish for about 3 hours. Have a good pic of Chiung back at the dock but need permission to post :)

Viz between 5-25' depending on the area, 72-74 degrees on the bottom. I will let the other guys add to the story....

Final totals:

40 Flounder
25 Mangos
15 Sheeps
1 Cobia (50 lbs)
1 Gag (20ish lbs)
1 AJ

Why am I not surprised that it is dark in the pictures back at the dock?
