    Port Canaveral Offshore 08-08-12 thru 08-12-12

    Port Canaveral Offshore 08-08-12 thru 08-12-12

    Another week fishing, with greatly varied sea's and fishing. The fishing has
    been much like the water temp's, Hot and cold. The cold water has moved the
    fish around, and had them biting one day, and tight lipped the next. The fish are
    also on the move, with big bottom fish often in close and shallow waters.



    One thing that has been consistant is Sharks. From the surf to the Gulfstream.
    We caught them up to 50 pounds, and seen many huge ones, that we kept
    gear out of the water rather than getting into an hours long battle with. For most
    of my guest though catching Sharks is a good thing. And with the Atlantic
    Sharpnosed, with a one per person limit, and taste much better than King Mackerel,
    this is not a bad thing. We stuck mostly out deeper than the waters people have
    been finding Kings in, so Cuda was also another toothy critter, as well as a
    highly prized Toothy fish, Wahoo.






    Dolphin have still been scarce, even with nice rips and weedlines. False Albicore
    are abundant, smaller ones in close, and larger out deep. On the bottom, the current and
    cold temps has Jacks off most deeper wrecks, and the current too storng to reasonably
    work it even if there. The Jacks have been moving around, and in shallower, and like
    the changing water conditions, eager to eat one day and slow the next. Red Snapper
    are still a common catch, with the smallest in the 5 day span being 22" long, and the largest
    at 33".


    Good eating Porgy are in good numbers, and make a nice addition to the icebox when
    little else in the way of keepable or good eating fish is biting. We had one of the calmest
    days of the year that I've seen on Thursday, and while cruising out in glassy conditions, watched a
    long lived waterspout in the distance. The next day, conditions started out choppy, got
    better by lunch time, but were downright nasty nearing shore on the way in.


    All in all, despite the fishing being somewhat slow when compared to the previous month,
    there are still a variety of fish to catch, and some good eating ones to keep.

    Wahoo was in 120-140...not on the weedline, but a clean area, with a few little birds working the surface. The weedline a half
    mile away got a little dolphin, but mostly sharks.
