Port Canaveral Fishing Charters

Sight Fishing for Cobia

Young men grow stonger and build character fighing big fish on light tackle. Especially when they spend a day on the water with their father. These anglers spent a day fishing with their dad and Captain Richard Bradley outside Port Canaveral and on the Banana River Lagoon.

"We simply found fish free swimming off port canaveral and threw live bait at them. It was instant hookups and loads of fun." Explained Captain Richard Bradley from Lagooner fishing charters.

Cobia are great fighters and good to eat. You can find them almost all year around off Port Canaveral and Cocoa Beach, but look for the most fun in the spring.

Spring Migration of Cobia

Cobia follow the 70° water as it warms from south to north along the Atlantic seaboard in the Spring. Typically the migration is around the month of March but can change each year according the winter release. Look for cobia to make their run during spring break and often during the warmer Indian Summer type winters in Febuary and January. Bring polarized sunglasses and a hat with a brim to assist you in the fishing day of sight fishing for these lumbering giants of the deep.
