Cocoa Beach Cobia Charters and Fishing
Florida's Finest Fishing Trips for Ling and Lemon Fish
Friday October 20, 2017
Cocoa Beach has some spectacular fishing off it's coastline during the spring and summer for large roaming cobia. Sight fishing is the most fun for anglers as they get to see the fish before casting toward them offering bait and artificials.
During the months of March and April during Spring Break and when the temperatures are starting to warm up is the very best time to target migrating cobia on Florida's coastlines. You can find cobia simply swimming along the surface basking in the sun, making wrecks and reefs home or following large marine life like turtles, manta rays, sharks and the likes. It's not uncommon to find cobia swimming around floatsome or buoys, chances are good in Florida, if you see something floating in the ocean, you just might find a curious cobia.
How do I connect with a Cobia Fishing Charter Captain and Guide?
Port Canaveral host every last one of the best cobia fishing charter boats for Cocoa Beach visitors and residents. Don't bother with some wanna-be charter captain from more than 25 miles away, the port host a small fishing fleet of advanced and expert fishing charter Captains. Captain Richard Bradley of Lagooner Fishing Guides lives adjacent to the City of Cape Canaveral and is five minutes away from marinas and launches at Port Canaveral. He's lived here his entire life and hasn't missed a cobia season in over 20 years.
Port Canaveral is directly adjacent to Cocoa Beach and is the very best place to go find cobia during the right time of the year. Cobia are warmer, tropical and sub-tropical fish and can be found where the water is at least 68 degrees. Typically cobia will migrate up to the Chesapeake during the summer and then go south for the winter to Florida. There are cobia that are residents and will not migrate, but move further out on the continental shelf when the cooler water comes to take advantage of the gulf stream water. Look for cobia during the spring and summer off Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach and a sprinkling of cobia during warmer days in the winter/fall.

October - 2017 Fishing Report
The summer is over and the autumn winds are starting to prevail as we head toward the holidays and winter. With water temperatures on the fall and water levels above average you can find good numbers of fish very close to the shoreline and against the mangroves. Mullet are in their peak run and will start to subside as we enter November, but bait, comfort and the end of the redfish spawn should keep anglers busy during the month of October. Lie mullet will trump any given bait during the fall on most days and if you're lucky enough to run into a school of big breeding redfish, it typically doesn't matter what you throw at them, just be ready for these fish that often exceed forty pounds.
Wrapping up the October report, we have been catching snook along the deeper shorelines with the seasonally high water, breeding redfish are coming to an end, but you have a chance to catch them and the fall mullet fun will keep the gamefish interesting into November.
October - 2017 Fishing Forecast
The frost is on the pumpkin, but not in Central Florida's Banana River Lagoon during October. The Halloween month can be the first we really start feeling cooler temperatures and the fish seem to get frisky and are hungry during this fall month. Although we concentrate further south for snook during October, it's starting to really get good in the Banana River as bait from the fall mullet run are around and there's plenty of action for almost every species from snook to sea trout. Sea trout in the evenings can be fantastic or early in the morning when the sun is not fully out. Redfish and tarpon will be around the whole day for anglers to enjoy. Look for the Banana to get better and better during the coming weeks and months as winter makes itself known.

Inshore and Offshore Charter Fishing near Orlando and Cocoa Beach, Florida. Catch redfish, sea trout, tarpon, snook and many other saltwater gamefish aboard the world famous Lagooner flats fishing boat with renowned Captain Richard Bradley.
Captain Richard was great company on the boat. He's a blast to hang out with and will glady joke around with everyone. When it came to the fishing it was a tough day to start but we were able to find a school of drummer fish. He was able to spot a school of fish from his boat which was pretty cool. We caught a good 20-25 lb black drumfish which made the whole trip worth it. For sure recommend captain Richard.
