Cocoa Beach, Cape Canaveral Fishing Report 2022
Well we survived Hurricane Ian thank god with no damage to any of our boats. It was an interesting storm to say the least with power outages, flooding, and down trees. We really do appreciate our customers that have fished with us already for reaching out to see if we were ok during the whole storm. Crazy how one minute the storm is going to track more to the west and then switch and head east.
Ft Myers is in total destruction from when Ian made landfall and our heart goes out to the charter captains in that area. The storm then proceeded north east to our coast of Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral and sure enough the eye of the storm went directly over us. Pretty crazy how calm and nice the weather is in the eye of the storm but anyways were back to fishing. I always tell our customers the fishing can be an absolute blast inshore right after a hurricane because the water rises so high and the fish move into the areas they can’t always get into.
Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, and Black Drum will be the targeted species in the river right now and the redfish bite has already been a blast but it is fishing and every day is a new day. Our nearshore shark fishing trips this month will start seeing the bull reds move in along the coast of Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral. These redfish are your trophy size redfish that range from 15-30 pounds. There’s always some sharks in the mix as well.
Along the jetties of Port Canaveral will also be targeting snook in our 25ft Keywest bay boat which can be an absolute blast depending on how they are biting. Going deep sea fishing the species could be Kingfish, Redsnapper, Cobia, Grouper, Amberjack, Almaco, Beeliners, Porgies, Triggerfish, and sometimes Mahi Mahi and Sailfish.
We are always honest on how the bite is so if your curious just give us a call and will fill you in and remember all of our fishing charters are family/kid friendly.
