A CENTRAL FLORIDA FISHING FORECAST EVERY TUESDAY
Just Capt. Alex Hughey showing off again…
The story of the week has been the smoking hot bite around structure in the lagoon immediately south of the inlet; specifically, one dock in particular. Anglers have been battling all the elements to get in on this action — wind, rain, and even hose-powered vengeance. Yes, that would be Joyce’s dock — and what a roller coaster “Fish Joyce’s Dock” has been… The event that will live in infamy for many locals, and certainly so for Joyce, went from funny, to hilarious, and then to just sad. The brisk spray of a hose proved no match for the crippling sting of public humiliation. Poor Joyce…
Speaking of events, we’ve got a couple of good ones this weekend! On Saturday and Sunday, there’s the CFFW’s 22nd Annual Marine Flea Market. It’s free admission and parking from 8am to 4pm at Harbortown Marina in Merritt Island. There’s truly something for everybody here, so be sure to check it out! Also this weekend is the first annual Surf Fishing Pompano Derby hosted by Pompano Riggs by Couture — enjoy some beautiful weather at the beach and possibly win some prizes, you really can’t go wrong…
IN THIS WEEK’S FORECAST…
SPACE B.O.I. FORECAST
- Black Drum
WEATHER OVERVIEW: These past few days the weather has been absolutely beautiful. Calm winds, flats seas and clear blue skies — perfect cobia weather! Unfortunately, it will be a small weather window that ends this evening. The next cool front moves in Wednesday and it will bring some pounding wind for about two solid days. Come Friday, the wind is projected to die down, but it will likely still be rough offshore. However, the weekend is shaping up for some prime fishing conditions, so spend some time getting your gear tight and right because when the Saturday arrives it’s GO TIME!
