Port Canaveral

If the water conditions stay fairly warm, Baby tarpon may be one of the species anglers can expect at Canaveral this month.

The fall mullet run that started back in November will start winding down this month, but there are usually still plenty of pilchards and glass minnows around to hold predators around the docks, piers and jetties of the port this month. Flounder are the big news during much of this month, but Spanish mackerel, bluefish, redfish and snook are all possible catches when using live baits around these structures. Tripletail should become more prevalent as the ocean waters cool into the mid 70-degree range. These tasty fish are found around the ships channel buoys and any type of floating debris in the near-shore waters. Live shrimp is your best bet when targeting these fish.
