Keeping an eye on the forecast over here. Looks a little windy at the moment out of PC.

Yeah, looks like Today/Friday is the magic window and some weather will be rolling in on Saturday and Sunday. I'm in Cocoa Beach right now, and the water is glass.

Saturday looks pretty decent with wave height and wave length

It's too bad I'm still in moving mode. I got one more weekend of wifely duty and then I think I am home free.

Enjoy the weekend fellows!

Yep it is gets worse further offshore.
I think today was the day and I couldn't get out of work.

"Saturday - South winds 15 to 20 knots. Seas 3 to 5 feet. Slight chance of showers in the afternoon."

I have some time next week so I hope it lays back down after this front.

JJ take a look at Winder Finder or SailFlow. I do go by NOAA, but I also follow the wind forecast. 3 to 5 foot seas can be handled easily if the wave period is 9 seconds or so...

But yes, if I didn't have to work, Friday seems to be the better day, but Saturday morning isn't half bad. There is some weather coming in, but I think the front blows through Sunday some time.

went out yesterday, started at PFlats and pushed deeper to 21 fathom line. First minute in had a knockdown on skirted ballyhoo, unfortunately a skippy. Proceeded to troll for the next 4 hrs with nothing but one cut off, no idea what it was. Headed back in and hit 8a hopeing for a quick king, and no luck. Hit the dutch for the hell of it, no luck. Not my day today. It was choppy, confused seas at very short intervals, with some solid 3s in there out deeper. Later in the day it smoothed out and the ride back was nice. Nice day, just no fish. Hopefully some of you guys did better.

Yeah, was at the port last night trying to catch the rocket and ran into a few people who went out -- sounds like everything was being stingy.

Went out today, but stayed in close since I had to be back in early. Marked literally more stacked bait pods on the sonar in 43-45 ft outside the inlet than I think Ive ever seen. Worked 'em until about 1pm. Caught tons of blues and some spanish mixed in as well. Had 2 chances at cobes, but didn't seal the deal on either. It was nice out, but definitely some confused swells at times.

I will be out there Tuesday if this weather window holds up. Have the kings still been running on Pelican and 8A or has the water temp dropped too much?

Since it is slow on our local thread...Does anyone have a good, professional wax/buffing service in the area? I started wet sanding my hull and looking for someone to finish the job. It's long overdue, see difference in photo.

There are a few in Orlando. I was looking last year, but they wouldn't travel to the east coast. Sorry, don't recall the names, but I found them through Google.

Link from maintenance report here. http://www.ndbc.noaa.gov/station_page.php?station=41010

Does this mean the 120 mile buoy will be back in march?

Just in time for the fishes and weather....although the fish are usually always out there if the buoy is there to act as a FAD.

I went out today and fished in the canaveral bight area and caught several bluefish. The weather was perfect and I have never seen so many trailers in the parking lot on a Wednesday. Kind of wish I ran offshore but I didn't have all day to be out there. Can't wait to here some of the reports from the guys who were out there.

I might try and run the beaches or hit the closer in reefs out of PC on Saturday to see if any rays or cobes are out there. Looks a little rough to be heading out deep and haven't heard much about good trolling lately.
