Cocoa Beach Surf & Fishing Report for Sunday, July 20, 2014

Waves are semi-glassy off of Cocoa Beach at 7 a.m. Sunday morning.


COCOA BEACH, Florida -- As of 7 a.m. on Sunday, July 20, 2014, jelly fish are not present in the water throughout Cocoa Beach northward into Cape Canaveral, Florida.
 
Look for purple flags flying at nearby lifeguard stations which would indicate the presence of jelly fish and other dangerous marine life in the immediate area.  Red and Yellow Flags indicate dangerous surf conditions, including rip currents.

Seaweed:  No seaweed in the water or on the beach.



Winds: Southwest this morning around 4 miles per hour.


Near-shore current: Slowly moving south.


Rip current threat:  Moderate


Breaking waves:  2-3 feet and semi-glassy.

 
UV Index: 12
 
 
Current Temps: Water 84 F    Air 80 F


20 Mile Cape Canaveral Buoy: 3.3 ft. swell every 8 seconds. 

 
 
Today is a good day to go fishing due to clear water, light winds, and little seaweed.  However, we will have an outgoing low tide during daybreak every day this week which makes conditions that are less than ideal for surf fishing.  Fishing off of Jetty Park in the early morning should be better than fishing from the beaches this week.


Keep your eye on approaching thunderstorms because Fishing Is The Number One Activity In Lightning Strike Deaths


Whiting, spot, and jack are biting from the beach. Stingrays are plentiful - so be careful when wading out into the surf.   Black drum, flounder and sheepshead are also biting off of Jetty Park.

 
For summertime fishing, use shrimp rather than mullet and look for Sand Fleas Return To Brevard.

Cocoa Beach Surf & Fishing Report for Friday, July 11, 2014

Calm seas made it easy to spot bait fish off Cocoa Beach Friday morning.


COCOA BEACH, Florida -- As of 7 a.m. on Friday, July 11, 2014, jelly fish are present in the water throughout Cocoa Beach northward into Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Look for purple flags flying at nearby lifeguard stations which would indicate the presence of jelly fish and other dangerous marine life in the immediate area.  Red and Yellow Flags indicate dangerous surf conditions, including rip currents.



Always check the Front Page of BrevardTimes.com each morning for the latest Surf and Fishing Report, or follow us on Google+, Facebook or Twitter to to receive automatic updates.



Seaweed:  No sargasso seaweed.  However, it appears that the waterspout has upturned vegetation from the sea floor in the waters along Cocoa Beach. 


Winds: South-southwest this morning around 5 miles per hour.


Near-shore current: Slowly moving south.


Rip current threat: Low to Moderate


Breaking waves:  0-2 feet and glassy.

 
UV Index: 12
 
 
Current Temps: Water 83 F    Air 78 F


20 Mile Cape Canaveral Buoy: 1.3 ft. swell every 9 seconds. 

 
 
Today is a great day to go fishing due to clear water, light winds, and little seaweed.  It will be hard to predict what effect, if any, yesterday's waterspout will have on fishing from the Cocoa Beach Pier south to Patrick Air Force Base.

A Full Moon this weekend should make for some great night time and early morning fishing off the beach.  Strong tidal effects should help with some fishing action and near around Port Canaveral and Sebastian Inlet.

Florida Recreational Red Snapper Season 2014

PORT CANAVERAL, Florida -- The recreational red snapper season in Atlantic federal waters (beyond 3 nautical miles in the Atlantic) is open for 8 days this year: July 11, 12, 13; July 18, 19, 20; and July 25 and 26.


During the season, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) is asking anglers to help gather important information about the Atlantic red snapper fishery.  


Researchers at the FWC’s Fish and Wildlife Research Institute (FWRI) will be out along Florida’s east coast during each day of the season, asking recreational fishers about their red snapper trips and their catch. This special survey is needed to gather more precise information on the numbers of red snapper caught by recreational anglers and spearfishers during the harvest season. Researchers will also collect biological samples of harvested fish (which will not affect the fillets) to help determine the age of each red snapper.


Last year researchers collected 1,701 samples from red snapper harvested during the three-day recreational season.


“Information shared by recreational fishers during this cooperative research effort is an important opportunity for fisheries scientists to obtain valuable data that can be used to assess the health of the stock and sustainability of the fishery,” explained FWRI researcher Beverly Sauls. “Data provided by recreational anglers during the 2013 season helped to make the 2014 season possible—these data are integral to understanding the Atlantic red snapper fishery.”


While the federal opening will have no minimum size limit and a bag limit of one fish per person per day, in Florida state waters (from shore to 3 nautical miles) there is a 20-inch total length minimum size limit, and a bag limit of two fish per person, per day. Vessels with red snapper smaller than the state’s minimum size limit must travel through state waters without stopping and have fishing gear stowed.


When anglers catch a tagged red snapper, FWC researchers ask that they report it to the Angler Tag Return Hotline: 800-367-4461. When calling the hotline, anglers should indicate the species, tag number, date and time of capture, catch location, fish length, type of bait used and whether the fish was kept or released. If the fish is released, the angler is asked to leave the tag in place to help with future data collection. 


For more information about red snapper sampling efforts, and for a list of carcass drop-off locations, visit MyFWC.com/Research, then click “Saltwater,” “Commercial and Recreational Fisheries,” and then “Recreational Fisheries.” For information on red snapper regulations, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing, and click on “Saltwater Fishing” under “Recreational Regulations” and then select “Atlantic Snappers.”

2014 Florida Spiny Lobster Sport Season In July

PORT CANAVERAL, Florida -- The 2014 Florida Spiny Lobster Sport Season, also known as 'Mini-Season' will take place this month on July 30 and 31, 2014.


In past years, every boat returning to the public boat ramp in Port Canaveral, Florida that dove for lobsters had reached their legal limit during the spiny lobster mini season. 


Diver after diver would throw back smaller lobsters when they caught a larger one to stay within the statutory limits to avoid the tickets being issued by vigilant Florida Fish and Wildlife Officers.

Once their limit was met, divers found more interesting things to do with their time such as spear large flounder in the nearby lobster infested area.


The mini-season gives sports fisherman first dibs at the lobsters before commercial fishing of the giant sea bugs begins the first week of August 2014 and continues into March 2015.
