Cocoa Beach Charters
Three Great Fishing Opportunities
Tuesday June 27, 2017
Interstate 95 blossoms with “Visit Cocoa Beach” and “Ron Jons Surf Shop” billboards from Maine and southward towards Florida. You’ll have no problem finding your destination in Florida from it’s northern Beaches in Jacksonville and Panama City and following southward toward Tampa " St Pete. East of Orlando and less than an hour from it’s attractions lies a tangle of inshore fishing lagoons and vast offshore waters of Canaveral and it’s shoals. We’ve taken time to list some of our favorite fishing destinations and types of fishing that correspond to them. We’ll start with the beautiful inshore fishing for Florida’s shallower water game fish and travel outward to the cobalt blue Atlantic ocean in search of big sports fish. But in no particular order here’s our attempt to do a fishing roundup for Cocoa Beach, Florida’s best Fishing Charters opportunities.
When the weather’s unpredictable in the Winter months and inshore fishing charter is a perfect alternative to the windy-rough days on the the Ocean. Cocoa Beach’s inshore fishing includes renowned fishing destinations like the Mosquito Lagoon, Indian River Lagoon and Sebastian Inlet.
The Mosquito Lagoon is renowned for sight fishing with it’s shallow clear waters for redfish, spotted sea trout and black drum. Surrounded by the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge and the Canaveral National Seashore the Mosquito Lagoon offers seclusion and comfort as it’s sheltered from the harsh ocean environments during windier seasons and produces great fishing too.
Along the beaches of the Space Coast or Brevard County are almost eighty miles of coastline offering summertime and calm condition fishing for the angling enthusiast. Different seasons will engage anglers with a large variety of fish species to target. Large Jack and Tarpon roam within sight of sunbathers and beachgoers on Cocoa Beach while huge schools of bonito can provide entertainment almost constantly. When the bait is thick and the ocean is calm and clear the summer months can explode with King Mackerel and Sharks. Nearshore fishing can be a great alternative to going miles offshore and keep anglers busy. Oh! Did we mention the Giant Black Drum and Redfish that seem to popping up in massive schools off the beaches? There’s too much fishing to mention in one or two paragraphs for Nearshore Fishing off Cocoa Beach, so you’ll just have to try it for yourself and bring plenty of sunscreen.
Venture offshore early for an offshore ocean adventure where salt spray, sunshine and fresh air will deepen your appreciation for Florida’s incredible Atlantic Ocean fishing. Seasonal fishing will change species due to migrations and conditions but Florida’s best fishing is often within miles of Cocoa Beach and it’s shoreline. Wreck fishing, reef fishing, trolling, live bait, dead bait and bottom fishing are all part of the offshore fishing mix and you’ll find a treasure trove of species waiting to be found. Mahi Mahi, Grouper, Snapper, Kingfish, Cobia and Amberjack are the just some of the popular gamefish that Cocoa Beach has to offer. Conditions during the winter may make this fishing difficult or impractical but there’s always alternative fishing near Cocoa Beach, Florida.

June - 2017 Fishing Report
June - 2017 Fishing Forecast
June of 2017 is looking to be a hot summer with hot fishing off of East Central Florida near Cocoa Beach. Orlando visitors should anticipate the warm weather and great fishing that coastal and offshore fishing provides in the warm Atlantic Ocean this time of year. Last year in 2016 we saw many tarpon exceeding 100 pounds caught off the Brevard County beaches along with a good amount of sharks, king mackerel and really big Jack Crevelle that kept things interesting. Looking forward to this year's forecast on the Space Coast remember that the coastal waters along the Atlantic seaboard and Ocean will probably be the most productive fishing during the month of June and as we look in to August the ocean will look to be the most inviting destination for anglers in the heat of the Central Florida Summer.
