Where to fish? What's biting?

Where to fish? What's biting?

While all species can be caught year-round surf fishing Florida's east coast, some are more prevalent seasonally depending on who you ask. The person surf fishing right next to you might be catching one species and you (just a ways down the shore) might not catch any of those. Bait and gear choice play a role in surf fishing, but throwing where the fish are is luck of the draw. And what was biting today, may not be biting tomorrow.

Canaveral National Seashore has a lot of surf fishing areas to cover. Miles of beach with seperate numbered parking areas. Avoid area 12 in Brevard County if you have a family (known as the clothes optional section). 90.1 miles between Titusville and New Smyrna Beach, Florida with endless days of Florida fishing adventure to be had at Canaveral National Seashore. Anytime there is a rocket on the launchpad KSC, these areas are closed. Generally, Haulover Canal is still accessible while Canaveral National Seashore is closed for launches.

Canaveral National Seashore Alerts lists closures and other relevant alerts. Check before you travel.

This year so far (2019), I've been catching Blue's (I don't recommend sticking your fingers in their mouth:), Snook (Closed until Aug 31,2019, Opens September 1, 2019-December 15, 2019), Whiting, Pompano, Margate, Sail Catfish, Saltwater Catfish, Croaker, Spots (same family as Croaker), Shark, Ray, Redfish, Black Drum, Sea Trout, Sheepshead. Location matters, fish gotta swim.

Check out the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission Recreational Regulations or get your Shark Permit by taking the course shore-based shark fishing at My FWC SharkCourse
