I'm spending 10 days there starting 8/2. Anybody ever fish out there, any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

I have and still do fish out of there. Are you looking for a charter or some good from shore spots? The two offshore ports are Port canaveral and Sebastian inlet. Both of these have a good number of charters available. Additionally, this time of year the night snook fishing at sebastian inlet is very good but is strictly catch and release. Kingfish can be found along the beach, mahi as close as 6 miles and at 25 miles you have 200 ft of water and it drops off quickly from there. If you are into shark fishing there are some large sharks along the beach this time of year. Probably the best way to get a bait out is off the end of the T-head at sebastian under a 1-2 liter bottle as a cork and just float the bait out with the current. The inshore fish are finicky this time of year because of the heat and it is mainly a morning and evening bite. If you want some specific spots to wade for trout or reds PM me. Hope this helps.

mackm - I also fish out of Port Canaveral. Lots of great places (inshore & offshore) to fish around here.

If you want to do some offshore fishing w/o chartering, then you could try the Ocean Obsession - here's a link for you:

If you want to charter up to 35 miles offshore, then here are a few that you could try:

Here's a link to many other charter boats for the PC area:

If you want to fish for Tuna on The Otherside (70+ miles), then you could try the following:

For inshore fishing (Redfish, Speckled Trout, etc.), you could try Sebastian inlet, Mosquito Lagoon, all along (numerous parks, etc.) the Indian River, etc. You can drive up to most of these places and just throw out a line. Be sure to stop by a local tackle shop, Walmart, etc. and pick up an out-of-state temporary fishing license - I believe they are around $10.

There is also a nice pier at Jetty Park that you can fish from. Here's a link to some information about the park:

Enjoy the area!

Thanks guys, I don't think I will have much time for a charter, but am looking to do some inshore fishing. My daughters house is in walking distance to the Indian River, so I will probably start there.

Thanks again,
mackm
