Cobia and Tripletail are high on the list of species anglers will be targeting this month outside of Port Canaveral.

Port Canaveral will be buzzing with activity this month as anglers run the beaches searching for a variety of species. Bluefish, jack crevalle, tripletail, cobia, and a few others will begin showing up in these near shore waters as the water temperatures rise into the lower 70-degree range. This is the preferred temperature for the baitfish that these fish feed on at this time of the year. Bait pods are often swarming with these various species if the water is calm and relatively clean this month. Live baits or jigs worked around the edges of the pods often result in a hookup. Anglers can also try casting large top water plugs Like the Williamson surface pro popper and work them aggressively over the pods to elicit strikes. Tripletail and cobia may be found around the shipping channel buoys or any sort of floating debris found in the 25 to 60-foot depths. Live menhaden, pilchards, and large shrimp cast t these fish will usually get them to eat.
