Charter Fishing Port Canaveral Along The Coast

Nearshore Fishing, Cocoa Beach FishingNearshore fishing is quickly becoming one of the most popular outdoor recreational activities.  If you are interested in taking a Cocoa Beach fishing trip, then you will more than likely be buzzing along the shoreline in search of the many species that migrate closer to the coast.

Charter fishing Port Canaveral is a great way to experience what our East Coast shoreline holds regarding different species caught off Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral, Port Canaveral and Melbourne Beach.  Nearshore Fishing or Coastal Fishing is actually in the ocean and just off the beach where you will be in sight of or at a eyes distance of the many oceanfront condos.

We consider the summer months a great time of the year in which to find Coastal Fishing most prominent.  Several different species such as kingfish, jack crevalle, bonito, sharks, tarpon, and even spawning snook and redfish are closer to the shoreline. These trips are great for everyone. Coastal fishing typically provides much activity for the experienced angler to younger children.  Often, most everyone thinks of Deep Sea fishing; however, that's not always the answer especially when you can hook into some of the species that school closer to the seashore.  Go Cocoa Beach fishing, and you will be surprised how tugging on many of these fish can put a hurting on you and wear out your arms as you have never seen before.

"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." Come and join us charter fishing Port Canaveral nearshore and make some life stories of your own! - Capt. Gina
