Surf Fishing Trip

The fall, winter, and spring time waters off Cocoa Beach, Satellite Beach, and Melbourne are perfect for surf fishing. The mild water temperature during these times of year are home to a wide variety of fish species that migrate through the area to and from their summertime waters. It’s also a great time to just enjoy the sandy beaches. It’s the variety of activities available on the beach that makes this trip so special. If it’s just you and a friend looking to do some serious fishing, or you’re with your family looking for a fun day at the beach, there’s fun to be had by all. It’s not necessary to enter the water for a successful day of surf fishing, however expect to get wet up to your knees.

The trip is approximately 4 hours in length, and occurs in the morning, between the hours of 6 AM and noon, depending on tidal conditions. All trips will be on one of south Brevard’s beaches between Patrick Air Force Base (just south of Cocoa Beach) to Sebastian Inlet.

Group trips accommodate up to 4 anglers on each trip.

What I Provide

I’ll provide all the bait and tackle you’ll need for a great day of fishing. I customize each trip to match the skill level and experience of each customer. If you’re an inexperienced surf fisherman, I provide basic instruction on surf fishing/casting techniques. If you’re uncomfortable handling bait or fish, I can bait your hooks for you, and unhook any fish you catch. If you’re an experienced fisherman, comfortable with a rod and reel in hand, or just a do-it-yourself type person, I’m happy to give you a few pointers and let you handle the rest. This is your trip and I want to do what I can to insure you enjoy the experience.

Feel free to bring non-fishing family members or friends with you, to enjoy the waves and sand. However, only paying customers will be permitted to handle any of the equipment that I provide

What To Bring With You

  • If your going on an afternoon/evening shark fishing trip, please bring a light long sleeve shirt, light long pants, and shoes that cover your entire foot and can get wet. Dusk will often bring out very small biting bugs called no-see-ums that can make you a bit uncomfortable if your not dressed properly.
  • Each fisherman age 16 and over is required to have a valid Florida Salwater Fishing License which can be purchased ahead of time at or by phone at (888) 347-4356 (there is a small surcharge for both).
