Fishing Report 06-16-10

With a couple guys on vacation in Orlando more interested in fishing than doing the waterpark thing with the family, we made our way out to see what was biting. We left Port Canaveral around 5:30 am, and stopped at the first bouy past the jetties. Though too dark to see in the water, we blind casted a topwater plug towards it. It definatly got the attention of a fish we would see a lot of this trip, and likely most of the summer, CUDA! a smaller sized one was hooked, only 42" long, We continued out, stopping briefly at bait pods to see if anything was following, but mostly just baitfish. We made a slow pass on 8A with a few "Cut-Off's", from fish managing to thrash the bait without snagging either hook. With no fish from this try, we went looking for weedline. We found it holding along the 130' mark, and with smooth sea's we put lines out, and kept a sharp look out for anything of interest. Not much action for some time, but visually we spotted a 10-12lb Mahi working the weedline, slowly nibbling under the weeds at the small bait clinging for cover. making pass's by with a variety of Ballyhoo offerings got no attention, nor did anything we piched it's way. We did not have any live bait, so thats likely what it was looking for. I've never seen such a picky Mahi. We stayed on the line a little longer, then worked back towards some bottom strucure in 120'. A lot of bait again was seen, and the Cuda were ever present, along with many Jacks, and Rainbow runners. Again, no live bait this trip, and they did'nt want to play. We did manage some catch's, from Rainbow Runners, to Porgy and SeaBass. We wanted to get some more catching before the day's end, so we made another pass slow trolling 8A, with another cutoff. We drifted the ridge while bottom fishing and bringing in the usual SeaBass and Triggers. Beautiful weather and calm sea's brought the trip to it's end, with us cruising back to Port at 40mph.
