Port Canaveral

Capt. Jim Ross

Captain Jim preparing to leader this 100 plus pound tarpon caught in the Canaveral shipping channel.
Tarpon, shark, Bonito, jack, and king mackerel should be possible in and around the Canaveral shipping channel this month. Anglers should slow troll or drift with live baits to get them to strike. If toothy critters are prevalent anglers should use a short wire trace. If not them a 60 to 80-pound test fluorocarbon leader is usually sufficient to get the job done. Flounder, redfish, snook and others should be possible around the jetties and piers of the port. Use live baits like majorra, pinfish, mud minnows or medium to large sized shrimp to get them to strike.
