Cocoa Beach Shark Fishing
Shark fishing in Florida is unlike anything else on the planet, which may be why so many people come back season after season. Unlike traditional deep sea fishing under the sun, shark fishing with us begins in the afternoon and finishes at night, taking you through dusk and beyond. The effect is haunting, exciting and utterly unique.
We run our shark fishing trips from 6:00 pm to 10:00 pm each night that we have a reservation. These trips are private charters, which means that it will be only your group with the captain. Since we are a private charter boat, and we are able to fish in shallower water than larger boats, we are able to catch bigger sharks. Yes, the bigger sharks are in about 6 to 10 foot of water. You will notice that we fish in shallow water a stone's throw from the beach. This is the best chance of catching a big shark. On average, we catch around 4 nice sharks per trip. We catch a variety of sharks including black tip, black nose, spinner, thresher, lemon, hammerhead, bonnethead, and nurse to name a few. We also catch big rays. Certain times of year we might also get a chance at a tarpon or a red drum.
Our shark trips leave out of Port Canaveral / Cape Canaveral which is just north of Cocoa Beach. We are driving distance from Orlando, Daytona Beach, and Melbourne.
Florida Shark Fishing Experience
People often ask us what shark fishing is like and what they can expect. We publish honest fishing reports to social media for every trip we run. You can check these out on facebook, google+, or twitter. We also copy these reports to our website each month so that you can look at the month you are planning your trip. This will give you an idea of what kind of sharks and how many we typically catch.
