Port Canaveral Mid-April Fishing Report


Fishing has been GREAT! Everything is showing up. 

Pogies are now running the beach thick in the mornings. You can find them starting from the south jetty to just past the pier in depths from 5 feet to 20 feet of water. Look for the birds and you should do just fine. A few throws of your net and you’re off to the races!

In the last few weeks, I have fished from the Brevard reef to 8A and everywhere in between. 

8A seems to be the best bet. We have been getting our limit of kings almost every day along with a stray cobia, sailfish, mahi and plenty of bonita. It seems as though the morning bite is where it’s at. By 12am the bite has been turned off so get out early

Weed lines from 160 feet and out have been holding mahi. We pulled live bait and ballyhoo, both working well.

Jack fishing has been great too. Get on the cones or your normal tanker/copper wrecks. 

Cobia have been scattered along with the triple tail. One day has been good the next slow. Be sure to have live bait ready if they don’t attack the buck tail. I still have yet to have a cobia this year turn a buck tail down. 

Good luck and any questions or advice please call! I will help anyway I can.
