Halloween Fishing Report Canaveral
Happy Halloween! Here is your Holloween Canaveral Fishing Report. What a great month we had once again in the beautiful waters of Florida’s Atlantic. Bunker have been cooperating more every day as are the mullet. Don’t just try going south for the bait as they are being found in the Canaveral Bight more each day. Take those baits offshore to the reef and slow troll for some good kingfish action.
Best Baits, Big Fish
Mixed in with the kings have been a bunch of bonito and cobia. Just stick to your normal stinger rigs and slow troll those and slow speeds of 1or 2 knots at most. If you don’t have any luck, frozen minnows are working as well. But definitely use some of those busters supplied by the Fish and Dive center in Cocoa Beach. Get with Nick. He knows what’s going on.
Bottom fishing should only start to improve. It has been tough catching croakers lately. Try the bouy line and try a few of the drop offs. Typically, this time of year we should start seeing the cobia and blackfin tuna showing up.
See if you can’t get around the shrimp boats during the day while they are anchored up. It has been pretty good! For the nearshore fishing, follow the schools of mullet, Tarpon and snook have been great.
They jetties have been holding fish daily. Flouro-carbon is a great bonus with this type of fishing. Spanish macs have been schooling the mullet schools too. Small jigs and topwater poppers work great with this type of fishing. Good luck. www.firedupcharters.com
