Cocoa Beach Fishing Seasons
Cocoa Beach fishing is enough to get the year off to a great start in January. Inshore, look for large schools of Black Drum in the local canals and creeks. Offshore, you can find Kingfish, Blackfin Tuna, and more.
Cocoa Beach fishing is as good as ever in February. Combine fishing for Speckled Trout, Black Drum, and Redfish with visiting a local Mardi Gras festival. That's enough to dispel the winter blues!
Come to Cocoa Beach in March, and you'll find one word on the lips of all the local fisherfolk. That word is Cobia. Sight fish for them near the beaches as they swim northwards alongside giant Manta Rays.
Things start to get really exciting. Cobia fishing is still at its peak, and these brown migratory fish start to be joined by a regal cohort—Tarpon, aka the 'Silver King'. This is also a good time to catch slot Redfish near Cocoa Beach.
Fish off the Space Coast's beaches in May, and you can add Jack Crevalle to your list of target species. These yellow and white fish may not be a good species for the table, but they will give you a fight to remember.
June is peak season for fishing on the Space Coast, and it's no surprise. The biggest Tarpon start to arrive now—try catching one of these 150+ lb monsters in shallow water! Offshore, the fishing is as good as it gets.
Everyone is talking about Tarpon and King Mackerel on the beaches of the Space Coast. Fish for a full day offshore, and you might even be able to catch a Sailfish and Wahoo, too. Inshore, search for big Tripletail.
Inshore fishing explodes at the end of August. The highlight is the amazing Snook bite along the beaches. As soon as the fall Mullet run begins, look for large schools of hungry Snook chasing these baitfish through the surf.
September is a great time to come fishing in Cocoa Beach. The crowds disperse at this time of year, just in time for the Bull Redfish run. Look for schools of up to 1000 hungry Reds in the 15-40 lb range. This is a sight you won't forget!
Inshore fishing continues to give as good as it's got. The schools of Bull Redfish are still around, and are joined by an increased bite from big Spotted Seatrout. Offshore, Kingfish, Sailfish, and Wahoo are biting.
Come to Cocoa Beach in late fall and you'll find quiet beaches and some of the best fishing of the year. The flats are thriving with Bull Reds and Gator Trout. There's certainly a lot to be thankful for this month!
As the waters cool, most of the game fish move into deeper holes and canals in the Cocoa Beach area. Large schools of Black Drum congregate on the flats. Don't miss the Cocoa Beach Boat Parade to get into the Christmas spirit.

What People Are Saying About Cocoa Beach
"Best Morning of Fishing!!!"
Fish in the lagoons were plentiful. Water was calm and we loved it!
"Half day trip with Chris"
Because of weather Chris picked us up in Melbourne and we fished the Indian River Lagoon and several rivers feeding it. Can't comment on Cocoa Beach.
"Half-day family fishing -- couldn't be better"
Capt Chris fished us out of the Eau Gallie Causeway in Melbourne on a nice afternoon, went to several locations, caught lots of fish, maybe 1 out of 8 were keeper mangrove snappers, saw dolphins, really great family togetherness. Thanks, Capt.
"3/4 Day before Hurricane Irma with Captain Chris"
Lots of fun! Book with Captain Chris of Central Florida Fishing. He will put you on the fish!
