Port Canaveral Offshore: Slower Week

I got to see an incredible sight last Wednesday. There were hundreds of bottlenose dolphin offshore they were jumping and playing right by the boat!

Fishing was tougher and slower than normal. The water temperature was in the low 60s all the way to well past 100 ft. There were not even threadfins on the buoys. Somewhere around 125 ft we hit blue, 70-73 degree water. There was a lot of life but there were not any pelagic fish excluding baby bonito and a few barracuda.

We tried for bottom fish other than red snapper, but they were everywhere and unavoidable. While trying to catch smaller fish, I accidentally hooked into what likely was a big grouper on spinning tackle.

I'm Kurt Boyken from Merritt Island. I'm 18 and I've been fishing since 2010. I fish inshore near my home on the Indian River Lagoon. I 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.
