A CENTRAL FLORIDA FISHING FORECAST EVERY TUESDAY
We’ve got a winner of the Kayak Giveaway from Cocoa Beach Surf Company!
Despite the fact that Central Florida was hardly grazed by Dorian’s outer bands, the storm still managed to turn life upside-down on the Space Coast for the better part of a week. We can all be grateful that this was but a minor inconvenience compared to other possible outcomes. Unfortunately, our friends in the Bahamas had no such luck; and they will need all the help they can get to rebuild and recover from the catastrophic damage suffered across the islands. See the post below from the Florida Sport Fishing Association (FSFA) to find out how you can help.
IN THIS WEEK’S FORECAST…
SPACE B.O.I. FORECAST
- Vermillion Snapper
WEATHER OVERVIEW: Once Dorian finally moved past Florida’s coast, we benefited from west winds and calm seas, but make no mistake about it — it’s been HOT, but so was the fishing! Anglers enjoyed great fishing inshore, offshore and from the surf. This week, the wind will pick up quite a bit. Expect a northeast wind throughout most of the week shifting more east moving into the weekend. Offshore prospects don’t look great this week, but if it’s any consolation, temperatures will hopefully cool down a little bit.

With the full moon on Saturday, expect to see the morning/daytime bite take a hit over the surrounding dates, BUT also know that the solunar forecast predicts SEASON’S PEAK fish activity on Saturday. The major and minor times of peak activity are below, with Saturday evening’s minor period slated as GOLDEN HOUR for catching fish!
