Captain Ed’s Family Fishing & Nature Charter is exactly what it says in the name. Setting out of Cocoa Beach, Florida, you’ll get to experience the incredible inshore fishing opportunities year-round, while you wonder at the outstanding nature in the preserves along the creeks and rivers. Captain Ed has been fishing these waters since the ‘70s, and can’t wait to welcome you aboard to provide a tailored trip.
Step aboard a 23’ Hurricane, powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine. She has been deliberately designed to drift along the tops of the skinny waters. With the aid of a GPS and fishfinder, you’ll get to the sweetest spots with ease, and you can start to make the most of your day. While the boat can take up to 12 people, Captain Ed doesn’t do trips with more than 6 people because he wants to make sure everyone is as comfortable as possible.
Fishing in this part of Florida is healthy all year, so don’t worry about waiting for the right time to book. Whether it’s chumming for Sharks, or just some traditional light tackle action for Redfish, Black Drum, or Jack Crevalle, you’re covered. You’ll get to use top of the range Penn and Shakespeare Ugly Stik rods and reels, along with terminal tackle, artificial lures, and ready-prepared live bait, so you’ll have the best chance of attracting a big one.
Upon returning to shore, the captain will clean your fish for you to take home for a well-earned meal. Just make sure to pack some food and drinks, and bring a pair of sunglasses. Free parking can be found near the dock, so you’re good to go. Capt. Ed promises do his best to make sure you and your family and friends have a fishing trip to remember, so come see for yourselves at Captain Ed’s Family Fishing & Nature Charter.
