Fishing Guide for Inshore Redfish

Best Bet for Inshore Red Drum and Channel Bass in Cocoa Beach

Thursday May 24, 2018

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.

Fishing Forecast

May - 2018 Fishing Forecast

May in Central Florida is the beginning of great things for people looking toward an ocean fishing trip looking for fast action. King Mackerel, Cobia and even a few tarpon start to make a showing as May develops into a more summer like pattern. Inshore the fishing can be productive for early morning and evening anglers as the sun warms the gin clear waters of the Mosquito Lagoon and the Banana Rivers. Both Redfish and Spotted Sea Trout will be a popular gamefish that even the youngest anglers will appreciate and enjoy. Bring plenty of sunscreen, some polarized sunglasses and broadbill hat as the Florida sunshine will penetrate the most protected boating endeavors. May is the beginning of the summer in Florida as far as the temperatures are concerned, but there's often an afternoon shower, so be prepared to fish early and get off the water before the afternoon storms roll in. So remember, inshore fishing and offshore fishing are an equal opportunity in May in Central Florida.
