A CENTRAL FLORIDA FISHING REPORT EVERY TUESDAY

Spacefish has published a Space Coast fishing forecast/report every week for nearly an entire calendar year. Some weeks, the conditions have been flat out horrid, making the struggle very real in stringing together even a few hundred words. Most weeks, however, fishing has been pretty good, which makes this production — and the lives of Spacefish editors — that much easier. Then there’s THIS WEEK, which is just on a whole different level. Apparently everybody has been out there fishing AND catching because the lid has been blown off the Spacefish inbox these past few days. We got a boat load of reports for you below, with many more coming down the hatch. Enjoy them, and if you go out fishing, add your own report to the top of the list by submitting it here.
Help Homeless Veterans in CFL
Veterans Day has just passed, and while the parade may be over, many of our veterans remain in need of our help and support, right here in our own backyard. If you’re looking for a great way to contribute, check out the Boaters Exchange Hope for Heroes 5k Virtual Run, an event spanning through the month of November. The benefactor is National Veterans Homeless Support (NVHS) and the mission to eliminate homelessness among veterans in Central Florida. This is a cause we can all get behind, and every little bit helps — click here to learn more.
FSFA CLUB MEETING
John Killian Stumpf of Native Salt Clam Bait will be the guest speaker at the Florida Sport Fishing Association’s monthly South Chapter meeting on Tuesday, November 13th @ 6:30pm (today). He is going to be discussing the various applications and techniques using Native Salt Clam Baits. “Pompano Rich” will also be joining the discussion.
Location: Front Street Civic Center 2205 Front St, Melbourne, FL 32901
IN THIS WEEK’S REPORT…
As predicted last week, the lull in the wind allowed folks to venture offshore which brought exciting catches of dolphin, cobia, kingfish, snapper and grouper. This week will be a bit different with the forecast consisting of wind, wind and more wind. Despite being well into November, transitional weather patterns remain present and will be on full display this week. Beginning with south easterly winds, they will transition to due west on Wednesday, which should present some nice surf fishing conditions. On Friday, the winds are expected to shift out of the north which will bring our next true cool front with high temps in the low to mid 70’s.
Be sure to keep an eye on the latest weather development in the tropics which is predicted to strengthen into named storm, “Patty,” later this week. Hopefully the seasonal cold fronts will keep it away from our coast. We will know more as the week progresses.
