Want to better your chances of catching quality fish out of Canaveral, Florida next time you're visiting or going fishing? Try taking a professional full-time fishing guide on a nearshore or offshore trip when the weather's nice. You might even catch some really nice tripletails like the one's that Captain Richard Bradley is displaying in the photograph on this page.
Tripletail are awesome eating fish that fight like brutes.You often find tripletail around flotsam, buoys or other structure and need a professional Port Canaveral fishing guide to show you the ropes. This day we found them around the mouth of Port Canaveral near buoys. How big do tripletail get? The tripletail above were just under 20 pounds, but they have been caught above forty at Port Canaveral.
Port Canaveral is known for BIG tripletails and loads of cobia during the spring. Triple tail will hang out at Port Canaveral during the late spring and summer and will make a showing again just before winter sets in.
"Getting a professional guide out of Port Canaveral is the best bet for finding and catching these illusive fish." explains native fishing guide, Captain Richard Bradley "We get huge tripletail at Port Canaveral and they seem to be getting bigger every year. After 9-11 Kennedy Space Center closed off the best tripletail fishing in the world and it's been more difficult to target tripletail but I have some secret spots and techniques that have proven effective for the patient angler." Since Richard made this statement the best tripletail locations have been reopened and the fishing has been superb when the tripletail are around.

Port Canaveral Jewfish
Alias: Goliath Grouper
"I don't know, I guess I'll never be PC... I still call them jewfish even though they are trying to get us to refer to them as Goliath Grouper. Somehow the 'David & Goliath story 'is not the same as Jonah being eaten by some giant fish."
Jewfish got their name from the speculation that this was probably the fish that ate Jonah. A little Bible trivia here: The bible never said a whale ate Jonah it was a rather big fish instead. Jewfish get to be hundreds of pounds and they are showing up in good numbers around Port Canaveral. They are a totally restricted species and must be returned unharmed back into the water. "We lost a big Jewfish on this day (somewhere under 100 pounds) and had great fun with tripletail and tarpon, we even caught a nice shark."

Great Day of Fishing - My husband and grandson went out fishing with Captain Richard after his wife, Captain Gina was kind enough to pick them up at out hotel in Cocoa Beach. They had a great time even though it was cut just a bit short by a storm. My 15 year old grandson was worn out after fighting a huge amber jack for hours. He loved it! The only bad thing I can say is that they never sent us the photographs they promised, even after I checked back with them.
