Orlando and Cocoa Beach Nearshore Fishing
Catch the early sunrise glistening on the rock jetty extending beyond the harbor. Feel the salty breeze as you are whisked along the nearshore coastal waters in search of sought-after game fish migrating within sight of land. Large schools of bait being chased by whatever it is after them. A chance of fish stretching your line shortly after leaving the docks, the fun is just begun. Fishing Cocoa Beach might be a bit more adventurous than you thought. -Captain Richard
About Coastal Fishing
Why Coastal Fish with Lagooner?
Coastal trips fishing near Orlando are a great way to experience what our East Coast shoreline holds with a variety of fish to be caught off Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral, Port Canaveral, and Melbourne Beach. Nearshore fishing is in the ocean, just off the beach but still in sight of land. Often, most everyone thinks of deep-sea fishing; however, that’s not always the answer, especially when you can hook into many different species that run and school closer to the shore.
The Best Times for Coastal Fishing
We consider the summer months a great time of the year to find Coastal fishing most prominent. Gamefish such as kingfish, jack crevalle, bonito, sharks, tarpon, and even spawning snook and redfish can be caught. This Florida sport fishing trip is great for everyone. Nearshore fishing typically provides much activity for the experienced angler to younger children. You will be surprised how tugging on many of these fish can wear out your arms and give a good fight.
Fishing Nearshore Close to Orlando
“I love jumping on the boat knowing before we get too far there are all kinds of different fish I will be fighting. A great day on the water I often remember is one summer day our daughter had her boyfriend out with us nearshore fishing; he reeled in five different species in a just a short time. We were back to the docks before noon, and oh boy, he had some of the best stories of his life to tell in just a simple morning of fishing.”
