Head down to Florida’s Space Coast and hop aboard one of the many Cape Canaveral fishing charters for an angling adventure that’s out of this world! Perfectly positioned between the Atlantic Ocean and the Banana River, you’ll get to cast your line with the Kennedy Space Center serving as an impressive backdrop.
 
If you’re fishing with family or want to spend less time on the water, a half day trip will let you explore waterways such as the Banana and Indian Rivers. These mangrove-lined fisheries are home to species such as Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, and Snook. Want to go beachside instead? Cocoa Beach’s inshore waters are a short journey away, with Tarpon, Kingfish, and even Sharks up for grabs on trips lasting 4–8 hours.
 
If you’re interested in a real rod-bending adventure, there’s a whole host of famous hard-fighting fish awaiting you out in deeper waters! On a full day trip, you’ll head up to 40 miles out to test your skills against Mahi Mahi, King Mackerel, Wahoo, Blackfin Tuna, Cobia, Amberjack, and Snapper species. These fish fight hard, so bring your best game face.
 
Cape Canaveral is a well-kept secret when it comes to Yellowfin Tuna and Marlin fishing. Opt for an extended day trip and head 60–100 miles out to waters that locals like to call the “other side.” If you’re a seasoned angler who wants to return home with a brag-worthy tale or two, this opportunity can’t be missed.
 
Deep sea fishing charters in Cape Canaveral tend to depart depart from Port Canaveral. Nearby Cocoa Beach and Merritt Island are popular spots to explore the Banana River from. Wherever you go, get ready to cast off on a trip that’s worlds apart from the rest!

January

There’s no such thing as winter blues in Cape Canaveral, at least if you’re an angler. Look out for Kingfish, Mahi, Sailfish, and Blackfin Tuna offshore (if the winds allow) or Black Drum and Sheepshead inshore.

February

Stay protected from rough waves inshore and fish for Redfish, Trout, and Black Drum. When the weather allows, go offshore for great bites from King Mackerel, Blackfin Tuna, Mahi, and maybe some early Cobia.

March

Everything is going on in March in Cape Canaveral. Inshore, you’ll find Snook joining Trout and Redfish, with Sheepshead over structure and Drum in the lagoon. Fish for Bluefish on the beaches or go offshore for Mahi.

April

Look for Snook around the mangrove islands and docks or go after Spotted Sea Trout in the evening. Offshore, Kingfish come closer to shore and Mahi Mahi and Amberjack are targeted further out.

May

It’s all kicking off nearshore. Tarpon, Bonito, Spanish Mackerel, Jack Crevalle, and Kingfish are biting off the beaches. Offshore, look for Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, and Wahoo. Don't miss Port Canaveral’s CFOA tournament.

June

June means tournaments and peak fishing season in Cape Canaveral. Watch the pros at the Florida Sport Fishing Association Annual Offshore Slam or head to Port Canaveral for the Canaveral Mac Attack!

July

In July, you’ll find Tarpon and Kingfish swimming along the beaches, with Mangrove Snapper, Spanish Mackerel, and a lot more biting inshore. Take an offshore charter, and look for Sailfish, Wahoo, and Kingfish.

August

Everyone is out enjoying the sunshine. Savor some of the best fishing early in the morning. Look for Redfish, Trout, and Snook, with Tarpon joining the inshore crew. Offshore, you could find Kingfish, Mahi, Wahoo, and Cobia.

September

Get out on the water and look for Bull Reds in the North Indian River, or large Trout and Black Drum closer to home. Cobia is biting near the beaches, with offshore fishing being mostly Kingfish and Amberjack.

October

The weather begins to cool as the month progresses. This is great news for Wahoo and Sailfish, who prefer the cooler water temperatures. Mahi and Kingfish are still biting well, and inshore the Bull Reds are spawning.

November

There is a chance of wind, which can disrupt offshore charters. Don’t let that put you off, though - November is one of the best times to fish in Cape Canaveral. Just wait til you try catching a huge Bull Redfish with light tackle!

December

The big news in December is the Kingfish run. This usually starts off around Thanksgiving and is about the most fun you can have on light tackle. Inshore, look for Pompano and Black Drum near the beaches.

It was pretty choppy and they had just had a tropical storm so the water was pretty murky and the fish were having a hard time seeing the line. Other than that, we had a good experience.

We were afflicted with success and limited out on king mackerel, including a 40 pounder, by noon, so we did some shark fishing and caught a nice 5-6' shark in the afternoon.

If you are interested in fishing for red snapper you need to be aware the season is very short and you should look it up so you know what to expect.

Our captain Nate made sure that we had everything needed for our trip. My inexperience was no issue and we had a great time. Once back to shore he cut up the few King Fish we caught and recommended how to best cook it as well as a restaurant nearby that you can bring fillets to for them to cook for you.

Three of us went out for a full day of offshore fishing with Captain Chris and it was just as much fun as we had hoped it would be. The bite was challenging but Captain Chris worked very hard for us, moving locations and trying different methods to get us on fish. At the end of the day we had caught a number of different species of fish and had some good ones to take home and eat. We would highly recommend taking a trip with Canaveral Fishing Adventures!

The Mahi trip had us hook and bring in 5 Mahi ranging from 15-22lbs a Tuna of 15lbs and a 20lb Bonita we offered up as bait. With over 75lbs of Mahi in the freezer and lots of good laughs and knowledge of the coast of Cape Canaveral we were incredibly pleased with this trip and would recommend it to anyone else.

We had an awesome time on our half day trip. Captain Aiden was very knowledable of the area and got us on the fish early. We laughed and joked the whole time and he really made the trip an over the top experience for our first time Ocean fishing. I would highly recommend All Points Guide Service. He recommended a local restaurant for us to take our catch too and they cooked it all up for us just minutes from the pier. We would definitely go again.
