Went out yesterday 1 foot seas, tried to find the horsham wreck, couldn't find it public numbers suck, went to Pelican flats, got full sabiki load of extinct small red snappers and picked up some grunts, free lined them got one huge hit and 10 minute fight then terminal tackle failure. Trolled around 150' area no seaweed to mention, all blue no birds, empty fish box.

No board fish but wife got a nice surprise in the FSFA tournament. This thing was damn sure good for dinner last night. Also fished next to a 31 Competition too for a while, don't see many offshore Canaveral other than Jlighting's 25.

The wife and I fished the FSFA and had planned to run out to 230' to start dragging ballyhoo but couldn't pass up the fishy looking water, large weed mats and countless flying fish in 130'. Dropped lines in and within 15 mins had our first short bite but missed it. Not too long after, we put a small king in the box and watched another king come right up behind one of our baits and snip the tail off. Decided to work our way deeper through dense scattered weeds with noticeably less flyers around. Had a few small snatch and grabs on the way that diddn't stick. Came across some really big weed mats around 170' with very few flyers and started getting into the cudas. Talked myself into heading back into 130' where all bait was and risk having a king cut the mono rigs. Around 145' at 10:45, we brought a cuda to the boat and as I was taking him off, both riggers get hit, but once again, took just the tail of the hoo. As I am putting new baits on, I break two of the pins off the rigs and we decided just to drop two baits back while I rebuild the rigs. As the wife is dropping back the rigger she starts yelling and I look back to see a pissed off dolphin following the bait before it decides to inhale it. The wife grabbed the rod and fought the fish for about 10 mins before we put it in the box. She was really excited because this was her first tournament after years of offshore fishing. Nothing too big, but surely something worth weighing in with how the dolphin fishing has been this year. Troll around the same area until 2pm watching kings skyrocket on our baits and letting the ones we brought to the boat go. Ran in a little early to beat the storms.
I drop her off at the weigh in dock around 3:30. When she comes back, her fish was only 14.7lb, but it was on the board for 1st in general and 1st in ladies. I swear she was more excited than when I asked her marry me. I had to explain that there was A LOT of time left and don't get too excited. Got back to the marina, rinsed the boat, flushed the motors and headed back to the weigh in. (I came back the next morning to really clean the boat and the fish while I let her sleep) We were still on the board in 1st for both categories (boat name was spelled wrong, oh well). As we watch some nice fish come in, we were slowly bumped down the board. Then the rain came in and the last we knew, we had 4th general dolphin and 3rd ladies. We were informed the official results would be posted on the FSFA website on Sunday. Well, her fish diddn't stick for either category, but we still had a great day with plenty of action and few fillets for the freezer. It was also the first tournament on the new boat, Jiggy Too! Watch out for Team Jiggy Too! next year!

The weeds were so thick (out to 300') it was either constantly clear or rig weedless and deal with misses - neither was productive for us. I should have had a Plan B and hit some bottom spots, but not there yet (something to work on).

Best part of the day was a quick/smooth auto-pilot cruise in

Yeah it was tough for us too... we hit various areas out to 1000ft with only 2 bonito to show for it.
We had a lot of short strikes and a fish came unglued pretty close to the boat.
A little after 6am we started high speed trolling trying to get a hoo.... Something hammered one of he baits and got off pretty quick..
I tried every lure and trick in the bag and nothing seemed to work...
There was a nice area with a 77 to 79 degree break and that didn't even produce.
it was 82deg at 1000.

Next time....

Hey guys - anybody know / care to share with me where I could find some Goliath groupers out of Canaveral?

I am taking my son and some of his buddies out for his birthday on Saturday and would love to give one of those a shot... Never successfully done it before but have had a few break-offs over in St. Pete. I have heard there are some hanging around the pier at Sebastian Inlet but I imagine those would be tough to target on a Saturday.

Thanks for any input.

Any public wreck off Canaveral. Lead wreck, korsholm, damocles, tiger red to name a few. Drop a big live bait, Jack Crevalle, big blue runner, spade fish, an ARS all work well. Hook up and put the boat in gear to pull the fish away from the structure and fight him in the sand.

They are in the river system by most of the bridges and also in the port by the cruise/cargo docks.I have been told if you can get up to them right after the ship leaves is when you want to fish for them as all the bottom is mixed up and they start to feed.Just make sure you have the gear to turn them before they get back to their homes and use big baits.You may even get a gag while you are there.

Went out last Wednesday to the Otherside. No YFT, managed a nice haul of Blackfin, Skippys, and a limit of Tile fish with the largest being 18lbs. Largest fish of the day was the skippy at 20 lbs. Found lots of birds, water temps were on the high side with from 80.5-82 degrees. Good day with constant action.

Got a late start yesterday. Didn't get to the Port until 9. Ran out to Hummingbird. Nothing but ARS. Ran out a little further to 27 fathoms and tried a couple spots. Again nothing but ARS.
Figured I try my hand at trolling. So I rigged up my newly acquired TLD 25's and headed east. Didn't find any weed patches and no real lines. Lots of scattered weeds Kept having to clear the lines. Gave up on trolling and headed back inshore for more bottom fishing and more pesky ARS..
This was the biggest at 30".
