Fin & Fly Fishing Charters – Stuart Angler

With a wide variety of trips on offer, ranging from inshore and nearshore trips, to Shark fishing and even deep sea, offshore trips, Fin & Fly Charters truly have a trip to suit every angler. Additionally, the rich local fishery of Cocoa Beach, Florida, allows you to target a whole list of species depending on your preference and skill level.

The charter’s great position puts it only a short drive from some of the most popular tourist destinations in Florida. Whether you’re visiting Orlando, Merritt Island, Kennedy Space Center, Daytona, Kissimmee, Disney, or Universal Studios, you’ll always be close enough to run away from the cities and enjoy a relaxing time on the water with Fin & Fly Charters.

The boat you’ll be fishing from is a 32’ Stuart Angler, powered by a 370 HP Cummins engine. Equipped with all the necessary safety equipment, onboard electronics for navigation, communication, and fish finding, the vessel will provide you and your group with all the tools you’ll need to ensure you have a safe and memorable trip.

If kids are joining in on the trip, the charter asks that the captain is consulted to make sure that the trips are suitable for kids of that age. All guests will be provided with appropriate-sized life vests. Additionally, everyone will be equipped with world-class Shimano rods and reels, and you’ll have access to both live bait and artificial lures. Live bait will be caught at the beginning of the trip, on your way to the fishing grounds.

Fishing licenses are also covered by the charter so the only things you should pack are food, drinks, sunscreen, and sunglasses. Tips are not included in the price and suggested gratuity for the captain is 15-20%.
