Fishing the last few weeks out of Cape Canaveral, Cocoa Beach has been nothing less than stellar. The winds have kept us from running offshore for the most part but with the west/north west winds we have been able to make the beach and shark trips almost daily. The fall run/spawn of the ocean running bull reds has been absolutely amazing. I have to be thankful that they not only showed up a month ago but that they are still here. It’s been crazy. I’ve had charters tell me they only want offshore fishing. I ask them, wouldn’t you want to fight 30lb fish on light tackle without going way offshore and they usually say yes, I didn’t know you could get fish that big near the beach, lol.  Mixed in with the reds have been some nice blacktips sharks. If you haven’t tried a blacktip your missing out.

Here’s what you need to do to catch fish along the beach right now. After coming out of the port look north or south for pelicans diving. You may find them from 10 feet of water to 30 feet. Every day is a little different. After locating them get your cast net and get some pogies or mullet, doesn’t matter.  I use a 30lb leader and a 8/0 circle hook. You can send one out free swimming and add a 1oz egg sinker to the other. Circle hooks are the key for a safe hookup and release.  Look around for the bait schools and toss your lines and just wait. I usually bounce from bait school to bait school till I can locate the fish. EASY.

Can you say On Fire? (No pun intended) but wow. The last few weeks have been great. Bait has been around and not that hard to catch. If you can’t find the pogies you can for sure catch the mullet. We have done a few trips offshore and a few trips inshore. Kings and mahi have been eating live bait and dead bait. If you cant find your pogies grab a box of cigar minnows and tip it with a skirt. After the winds kicked up we had to stay inshore and give that a whirl. And honestly, Tarpon, reds, Spanish, bones and cobia close to the beach have been incredible! Find the bait pods and your good to go. Some days there up near the bight (left out of cape) and other days down towards Patrick. Bring plenty of leader material and hooks. 60# flouro and 8/0 circles. Good Luck!
