An Unusual Offshore Opportunity

grouper

We went out Monday with a plan to catch grouper and (sorta) got it done. Our initial plan was to drop croakers on 27 Fathom for grouper and squid or sardines for smaller fish. The plan was foiled by red snapper, so we trolled for two hours and got one short mahi. There was only 1.5 mph of current over the Cones, and we got a porgy, snowy grouper, and a blackfin on the bottom! We would’ve stayed longer, but storms were popping up so we headed in.

The Port is loaded with flounder right now and various hit/miss opportunities exist inshore.

About the Author:

I'm Kurt Boyken from Merritt Island. I'm 18 and I've been fishing since 2010. I used to fish inshore near my home on the Indian River Lagoon. I used to catch black and red drum, trout, tarpon, and a few small snook. When weather permits, I will fish out of Port Canaveral for the many various species caught nearshore and offshore. My very favorite is big tarpon.
