Port Canaveral Springtime Cobia Fishing

Early Spring and March are Sight Fishing Fun!

Tuesday July 25, 2017

It's warming up on Florida's east coast and the annual run of cobia typically happens in March as the Mercury rises. Sit back and relax aboard the Lagooner as you idle along in search for these migratory fish moving northward towards their spawning grounds.

Fishing Reports

I don't know if I beleive in global warming but this July of 2017 is proving to be one of the hottest years that I can remember. Hey it's Florida, it's supposed to be hot in the summer! While the fishing has been good in the early mornings on the Mosquito Lagoon, I've tried to steer my costomers a little further south toward Port Canvaveral for a day of excellent fishing off the beaches. Tarpon have been roaming the beaches and big king mackeral are stricking live baits and dumping spools. I love this type of fishing and it's difficult to be pursuaded back to Mosquito Lagoon during this hot summer month when 2017's temperatures seem as hot as ever. Several of my guide friends look to the Florida Keys in the summer take advantage of the cooler tidal movements, it might be wiser to call Captain Gina and get a report on what I'm doing around Canaveral and Sebastian Inlet before setting your mindset on Mosquito Lagoon.

The Lagoon is progressively turning into a morning catch and many of my anglers are booking half days to catch thier limit in redfish before the fully rises and the mercury breaks into the 90 plus degree mark. Guys, bring a white colored tee or cotton button-down because the summer sun will cook even the lightest colored columbia shirts and tees. Girls, well bring your bikini and you'll get a tan and stay cool while you fish. Did I mention the mosquitos?

Fishing Forecast

July Offshore Forecast

July offshore fishing conjures up thoughts hot summer days of on the water with cold fried chicken in the cooler and fireworks displays on our nation's Independence day celebration. It's also the time for Daytona Races and having cold beers for many that come to our area to relax and spend some time soaking up the Florida sunshine and saltwater while pulling in a few fish. Central Florida offers some calm water fishing in July and many of the species from king mackeral and cobia come closer to the beaches to spawn and feed. Traditionally there's less fishing far offshore except for Tuna and other big game that larger boats pursue in excess of 80 miles offshore, but that's not what this forecast is about. Most of our fishing remains within the fifteen mile range and often much closer. During July you expect to find great fishing within sight of land and some even closer, but don't think it's not big fish closer in. Large spawning King Mackerel and even larger tarpon and cobia can be found close to shore and around bait pods.

Offshore fishing in Florida during July can be a marvelous addition to your summer vacation plans. Don't come to the coastline near Orlando and let a day of getting offshore slip by.
