Central East Coast Florida Fishing Guides and Charter

Indian River Lagoon Fishing Guides

The Indian River Lagoon runs from just north of Cocoa Beach and Titusville south to Vero Beach and the Fort Pierce region. The Cocoa Beach fishing guides are blessed with large schools of big redfish while a bit farther south near Sebastian Inlet the Vero Beach fishing guides usually fish for big snook. Tourists and visiting anglers who wish to fish the Indian River Lagoon will have no trouble finding fishing charters in Cocoa Beach, Vero Beach, Fort Pierce, or any of the fishing grounds in and around the Indian River lagoon.

Charter Fishing in Cocoa Beach

There is something special about charter fishing in Cocoa Beach. Cocoa Beach fishing charters aren’t only blessed with some great fishing but they are also located on the famous Space Coast of Florida where millions of tourists and sportsmen visit every year. The tourists come to Orlando for Disney and MGM Studios and because Orlando is less than an hour to Cocoa Beach they frequently make the drive to the coast for a day or two fun, sun, and a little Cocoa beach charter boat fishing. The fishing guides in Cocoa Beach, Titusville, and Cape Canaveral region catch a variety of fish like trout or jacks but the main fish the guides love to catch are big redfish.

Big reds or red drum and redfish as they are also called school up in the Indian River Lagoon sometimes in schools of 100 fish or more. The reds we are talking about aren’t some puppy drum either as these fish can easily top 25 pounds and the fishing guide only need to flip a topwater lure into the school and the fight is on. Talk about some fun, this is what Cocoa Beach fishing is all about and should you find yourself vacationing in the Indian River Lagoon region then we recommend hiring a Cocoa Beach fishing guide so you can experience what brings anglers here from all parts of the country.

Charter Fishing in Vero Beach

Vero Beach fishing charters fish towards the southern end of Indian River Lagoon which is near Sebastian Inlet, Fort Pierce, and the Mosquito Coast. Unlike the Cocoa Beach guides that target more redfish the Vero Beach fishing guides go after big trophy sized snook. There are other fish like tarpon, trout, and yes reds but snook fishing is what usually peeks the interest of the fishing guides and charters in Vero Beach. Reaching tremendous sizes of 30 pounds occasionally a snook will fight like no other fish. With big line stripping runs the snook will suddenly break the waters smooth surface only to dive back to the bottom and do it all over again. A tussle with a snook will give you a great fish story to tell your buddies about
