Cocoa Beach FL- shore fishing

Rate this topic

2 posts in this topic

This time of year most people are fishing for pompano from the beach. Cocoa Beach is pretty flat and shallow, I would suggest that you fish at the south end of Cocoa Beach and along Patrick Air Force Base. Tyical rig you see for pompano is a double dropper rig with 3-4 oz weights and either fresh cut clams or sand fleas for bait. You are right nest to port Canaveral and there is a fishing peir there. I do not fish that area but there are snook in the port and a variety of other fish. For the port an 8 ft rod with a 5-6000 size reel wwould work. For the surf I think 10-12 ft surf rod is what you will need. There is always the opportunity to fish the first trough with a shorter rod.
