Florida’s Hometown Barrier Island Our Cocoa Beach Fishing Village
Snuggled between the Atlantic Ocean and the Banana River Lagoon is our barrier island hometown with excellent Cocoa Beach fishing adventures. During each season anglers can experience flats fishing the natural coastal shorelines where sea trout and redfish are abundant almost all year around.
Central Florida’s warm water host a large variety of fish and marine mammals including lumbering manatee and frolicking bottle-nosed dolphin. It’s common to see alligators basking on the shorelines or swimming lazily along the mangroves.
When you’re visiting Florida, the vast coastal Atlantic Ocean is a great place to spend a day Cocoa Beach fishing. During the summer, it’s balmy calm, and welcoming for every age, an enjoyable experience for everyone. The Banana River offers year-round fishing in the shallow saltwater lagoon too.
Take Advantage of Cocoa Beach Fishing
Cocoa Beach is adjacent to Port Canaveral with locks that open up into the gorgeous inland waterways. This gateway provides passage for a vast amount of marine life including popular game fish and marine mammals. Entering the Banana River, you will experience the vastness of Florida’s mangrove estuaries near the Thousand Islands and Merritt Island. Fishermen traveling east will treat themselves to the cobalt blue gulf stream or the coastal fishing on the continental shelf.
The west side of Cocoa Beach is the shallow water Banana River with redfish, sea trout, snook, tarpon, and black drum. On the eastern beach side is the Atlantic Ocean offering king mackerel, mahi-mahi, cobia, and other hard fighting pelagic species.
