Pelagic species including Tuna, Marlin, Sailfish, Wahoo, and Mahi, can be found in various ranges of water temperatures, gravitating to temperature breaks where bodies of cooler water meet warmer water which creates conditions of upwelling to start the marine food chain. Studying Sea Surface Temperatures (SST) near Florida East Coast before heading offshore gives any serious angler the deciding upper hand.
FishTrack’s Cloudfree SST imagery - produced using data from collective satellite SST sources and aided by computer modeling to fill in areas blocked by cloud cover - offers the ultimate tool to help offshore anglers pinpoint and precisely locate desirable temperature breaks offshore. Concentrations of bait and gamefish will often occur where temperature and chlorophyll breaks are found in proximity to submarine contour changes around ledges, banks, canyons and seamounts.
With FishTrack’s ability to overlay corresponding altimetry (sea surface height anomalies), bathymetry, ocean current imagery, and local hot spots on top of any SST or Chlorophyll layer, successfully targeting fish offshore has never been easier.

Florida’s expansive east coast has many differing offshore grounds. The northeast off Jacksonville is defined by relatively speaking cooler waters which tuna can show up in, the central coast off of Cape Canaveral combines a mix of water temps and crossover species such as wahoo and king mackerel and the southern region off Miami contains more tropical temperate species such as sailfish and marlin. Waters relatively close to shore can range from 100 to 1000 feet in quick fashion. Hot spots include the Melbourne Canyons, Capt. Dwyer’s Wreck. St. Lucie Humps, Bethel Shoals. The waters off of Miami are legendary sailfish grounds outside of Government Cut.
Locations of various fish species are affected by water temperatures, time of year and availability of food. Sea surface temperature (SST) plays on integral role for targeting species in their respective seasons. For Florida East Coast these are the best months to target these species:
