Fishing Guide for Inshore Redfish
Best Bet for Inshore Red Drum and Channel Bass in Cocoa Beach
Saturday October 21, 2017
On any given day there's bound to be some redfish caught around Cocoa Beach, but a good fishing guide can often turn a mediocre day of fishing into a great day of fishing. Known for it's warm sub-tropical weather, beautiful beaches and clear lagoons, Cocoa Beach host some of the best inshore fishing for a variety of sportfish including sea trout, tarpon, snook and yes... even the giant redfish or channel bass as they are often called.
If you decide to go on a fishing trip and target red fish in the Cocoa Beach area, you'll need to hire an experienced guide that's properly equipped with the correct tackle and also the qualified vessels for moving around the shallow water lagoons where the redfish frequently roam and feed. Redfish or "Reds" as they are often called, can be elusive to many anglers because their habits are often misunderstood. These heavy bodied fish feed and live in the shallow water areas where normal boats don't have the capabilities to pursue them. It's essential to have a shallow running boat to get to the fish and offer lures and/or baits to them.

October - 2017 Fishing Report
The summer is over and the autumn winds are starting to prevail as we head toward the holidays and winter. With water temperatures on the fall and water levels above average you can find good numbers of fish very close to the shoreline and against the mangroves. Mullet are in their peak run and will start to subside as we enter November, but bait, comfort and the end of the redfish spawn should keep anglers busy during the month of October. Lie mullet will trump any given bait during the fall on most days and if you're lucky enough to run into a school of big breeding redfish, it typically doesn't matter what you throw at them, just be ready for these fish that often exceed forty pounds.
Wrapping up the October report, we have been catching snook along the deeper shorelines with the seasonally high water, breeding redfish are coming to an end, but you have a chance to catch them and the fall mullet fun will keep the gamefish interesting into November.
