Caught Aboard the:
Curtis, Laura, Kyle, Corey, and Kaitlin
from Denver bend some rods.
Today my fishing buddies were Curtis,
Laura, Kyle, and Corey Berg and Kyle's girlfriend Kaitlin Davis who are vacationing from the
Denver for a half day of deep sea fishing offshore Port Canaveral.
Ran down the beach as and picked up a live well pogies and
since the bite at 8A for kings and Cobia has been so consistent lately I
decided that we'd try our luck again there. As you can see the weather
in the morning was beautiful and calm and upon arrival we were greeted
with a steady and at times hot and heavy bite. Everyone aboard caught
more than one fish and Kaitlin caught the only Cobia we saw.
Unfortunately Kaitlin's cobia was just short of the 33" fork length
requirement, but, with a little luck the next person who catches the
Cobia will turn in the tag and Kaitlin will get a t-shirt in the mail.
A great time was had by all and there was plenty of fish for
the family to eat during their stay here in Central Florida. I really do
like the new spray curtains that I recently had made at Bambi's Boat
Works and Canvas in Port Canaveral because they kept all of us dry in
our return to Cocoa Beach after we got caught by an afternoon
I really enjoyed sharing the day deep sea fishing with the
Berg's and we all had a lot of fun. It's really what I love about what
it is I like to do. Fishing, action, fun, new friends, and more good
Final tally for the day:
16 Kingfish with a limit of eight kept for the table
1 Cobia tagged and released
1 Jack Crevalle
2 or 3 Remora released to fight another day
Corey bowed up on his first saltwater fish!
