Default Battery Question

I am having issues with my cranking battery. I've tested the battery 3x and it tests fine. It shows it's good but only shows 890cca but it's a 1000cca battery. Could this be the problem? I'm getting 4 hours of fishing before it starts to shows signs of being dead. I don't think my motor is charging my battery. It's my understanding that if I start my motor and give it some gas that my battery should go up in amps on a tester. Is this true? My battery reads about 12.7 amps cold and when I start the battery and give it gas then it drops to about 11 amps for a second and then returns to 12.7 but never gets higher. Any thoughts on what my problem/s is?
