3/18/06 Port Canaveral & Tourney update

Our family schedule has not permitted us time to fish this week but here is a short report of what I've been reading. When many boats headed back out, after a few days of high seas, they said the cobes were thinned out quite a bit more than last weekend. This probably means that some have gone ahead and moved north as the waters are warming up. Our area is still fighting the winds & high seas; however, the Cobia Fun Tournament has decided to move forward with the tourney, having weigh-in on Sunday evening.

Nice snapper, gags and flounder are being caught around the wrecks. I have heard the first 'other side' of the Gulf Stream report today with a nice Yellowfin being brought aboard. Nice weedlines gave way to dolphin- mahi mahi being caught. I am looking forward to them being on the west side of the Gulf Stream so that I can catch my first one. Jack caught one last year on a friend's boat. We really didn't have the right boat during last Spring's fishing season, which is the best season of the year.

Here is a picture of Jetty Park beach & south Inlet rocks. Just a couple miles past this lies cobia grounds.
