Our offshore fishing trips make for an action packed day fishing the waters offshore of Port Canaveral. We target a wide variety of species including Pelagics such as King Mackerel, Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, and Wahoo. We also go after a variety of bottom fish such as Groupers, Snappers, and Amberjacks. Come test your luck and skill and see what the Atlantic Ocean has to offer.

With Southern Mayhem Fishing Charters, something’s always biting. The only question is – when are you coming?

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
Ever since I was a young boy I have been fascinated by the pursuit of fish of all kinds. I was fortunate to have a father that has always had the same passion for fishing that I have, and he has passed on a wealth of knowledge that I look forward to passing on to other young anglers. Growing up in the space coast area, I have always had a plethora of opportunities to fish. Whether it be riding my bike to nearby ponds, having my parents drop me off with my skiff in the lagoon, fishing offshore for pelagic fish with my father, or fishing at the Sebastian Inlet with my friends, I would capitalize on any opportunity I had to fish. I have spent much of my childhood learning about the diverse fishery the Indian River Lagoon and Banana River Lagoon have to offer. As my skills and knowledge about the sport grew, I realized that I would love to pass on my knowledge to others, and show them the amazing inshore fishery the Space Coast has to offer.
