Yesterday, BrevardTimes.com was the only Florida media outlet which publicized Governor Rick Scott’s statements that he had caught and cooked redfish over the legal limit.
The story then went viral within the last 24 hours amongst Florida sport fisherman across the State of Florida, including websites like BigFendFishing.net.
Today, the Governor responded about the gaffe to NBC Orlando affiliate WESH Channel 2, stating that each person only kept one redfish, and that he had thrown back the 40 inch redfish.
Clear, sunny skies, high temperatures, and calm seas and wind made for a perfect day of boating and fishing in Brevard County on Sunday thanks to a stationary high pressure area that will cause high temperatures once again today.
Seas were 0-2 feet throughout the day, according to data recorded by NOAA’s 20-mile Canaveral buoy.
Kingfish, Dolphin, Cobia, Bonito, Toadfish, Ribbonfish, Flounder, and Sheepshead were biting heavily on bait-fish off-shore yesterday near Pelican Flats.
