Port Canaveral Offshore 01-03-11

Deep Sea Fishing Report From The Wile E Coyote - Port Canaveral

Not the greatest of conditions offshore, but better than the past Friday. We could at least see over the waves, despite the 20mph winds and very choppy 3-4' Sea's.
The only other days avalible for my guest were Thursday and Friday, which were forecast to to be much worse. With 5 guys having little to no offshore experiance the sea's quickly emptied the stomach's of 3 of them. They pressed on, and insisted staying the whole day. Only two guest spoke English, so a lot of translation took place.

We were planning on trolling the Pelican area for Kings, but after the chumming episodes, we decided that it would be best to anchor and keep the boats movement limited to one direction. While all anglers were able to say they caught fish, some still spent more time with their head overboard than fishing, or even sitting upright for that matter. Triggers were flooding the reef, with average sizes about 18". We quickly found them biting higher and higher, until finally the were hitting the bait only 30' below the boat. This certainly limited our bait stealers, and smaller SeaBass which was nice since the Triggers provide not only the best tasting fish in our waters but also a handfull more times the meat than the ever present SeaBass.

With all but one of the 5 guest content to sit and "Enjoy the View", I started hooking up fish for them, and handing off the rod to each of them. This added about 30 nice
sized Triggers to the catch. Flatlines added a few more fish, and also a few lost. A King and Shark was brought to the docks, and a few kings were lost.

Despite being sick, they all were looking forward to planning another trip, though perhaps into spring when the sea's start to settle down.
