Port Canaveral Tripletail
Cape Canaveral and Port Canaveral Tripletail Guide
Monday March 19, 2018
Tripletail are an awesome fighting fish found near Port Canaveral and Cape Canaveral's shoreline. Early summer and late spring are great time to target tripletail nearshore, not far from the beaches. November December and January are great for big tripletail if we have a mild winter.
"We had an Indian summer in January of 2005 and the tripletail were out-in-numbers along with free swimming cobia", explains Captain Richard of Lagooner fishing guides. "We had three weeks of excellent fishing off Port Canaveral in January 2005 and limited out on tripletail almost every time we went out. Most of the country was in snow and storms and Florida was making up for last years hurricane ravages."

I'm not one to brag (yeah right!), but Port Canaveral has the best tripletail fishing in the world. How can I make a bold claim like that? It's easy! Look at the IGFA's website for all the tripletail records and Canaveral eclipses every other location worldwide.
Generally speaking, there are two yearly time periods that tripletail are most cooperative. The spring from late April thru late summer and then again in the fall around November they make another appearance. Tripletail show up for a few days/weeks and disappear as fast as they came into the picture. I keep up with the tripletail bite, so if I say "they're on or off" you can pretty much count on it either way. Tripletail can be physically demanding and challenging for anglers that are not spry on their feet and strong in the arm, so consider this angling experience not for the novice or weak.
Where is Port Canaveral Florida?
Finding Port Canaveral from Orlando is easy and close as the Orlando International Airport is a straight shot from the exit on SR 528 or the Beachline. Simply head east from MCO (airport) on SR 520 and continue for 46 miles to the Port Canaveral Terminal B exit on George King Boulevard and you're there.
Port Canaveral is directly east of Orlando on Florida's east coast and Atlantic Ocean shoreline. It's Orlando's closest beaches and most laid back atmosphere. South of Daytona and directly north and adjacent to Cocoa Beach the City of Cape Canaveral is snuggled between the Kennedy Space Center on Canaveral's National Seashore and Brevard County's beautiful Cocoa Beach.
Little detail is provided about this species except that they appear to have three tails which are actually large anal and dorsal fins that drop back far and elongated along the body. Tripletail change color with their environment and are great imitators, often imitating floatsome and leaves. Color can vary from black, grey, brown and yellow depending on habitat.
Tripletail are found in mild and warm waters around floatsome. They are often around bouys or sargassum seaweed floating on the surface.
Port Canaveral holds some of the biggest tripletail in the world. Look at a recent catch [here].
15" minimum size limit, 2 per angler per day.

March - 2018 Fishing Report
March - 2018 Fishing Forecast
March of 2017 produced some great inshore fishing for many of the spring breakers that visited Central Florida and took advantage of the Florida Sunshine and outdoors. Spring Break of 2018 should be a great March for vacationers on their Holiday from college and work as they prepare for some action on the Mosquito Lagoon, Indian River and if the winds stay calm enough to even venture offshore out of Port Canaveral. Look for cobia to show up in March if the water temps hover around 70° and the ocean remains calm enough to sight fish for these hard fighting and great tasting coastal fish. If the water temps are a little too cool there will be plenthy of inshore action to keep most anglers busy.
