Cape Canaveral Fishing Spots

Vacationers that are wanting variety in their vacation can look forward to embarking on a variety of different deep-sea or shoreline fishing adventures at various Cape Canaveral fishing spots.

Fishing is an everyday activity at Port Canaveral, and there are lots of methods to get it done. Try your luck fishing from the shore of one of the many fishing spots in Cape Canaveral areas if you want to maintain your feet on dry land.

Shoreline Fishing

Some say that the hottest place for shoreline fishing may be the Malcolm E. McLouth Fishing Pier at Jetty Park.

Anglers gather here around the clock to test their skills at Spanish Mackerel, Snook and other demanding game fish.

If you are fishing by boat, you can access the Atlantic Ocean through the Canaveral Barge Canal.  The Canal supplies an east-to-west connection between Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean Florida, in two sections divided by the Banana River. It’s located 15 miles south of Titusville, Florida.

The Barge Canal is also a popular place for shoreline fishing. As a matter of fact, anglers travel all the way from Orlando to fish in the canal at the bridge and the surrounding areas.

Cape Canaveral Deep Sea Fishing

Consider hiring one of the many private charter boats. If you are on a tight budget, then a public fishing charter is your best bet. In addition, trips are available every day depending on the condition of the ocean.

My favorite is a public charter boat. The Orlando Princess. You can make it a full day or half day fishing trip. Furthermore, they also offer night shark fishing trips. They provide everything you need.

Fishing boat captains understand the best way to cater to almost any fisherman – from inexperienced customers that have never held a fishing rod to an experienced fisherman. Our fishing charters are fantastic for families and children at the same time!

Participate and experience  pulling fish like Amberjack, and Grouper, Snapper, Sharks. Try and tame Barracuda, Kingfish, and the fast and furious Wahoo. Experience the exhilaration of hooking into a Tarpon, Sailfish, and Dolphin.

 Malcolm E. McLouth Fishing Pier

Malcolm E. McLouth Fishing Pier is a 1,200-foot public fishing pier. Open 24 hours. It’s a concrete pier, well lighted, and equipped with complimentary fish-cleaning tables and completely accessible to the physically challenged. The view of a cruise ship going out to the ocean is fabulous from that vantage point.

The first two-thirds is just 4 feet. The fishing goes and comes but is consistently entertaining. I ‘d urge you attempt to be there during the Mullet run through early November. A river of Lady Fish and enough Mullet Blue Fish for everyone. The finest fishing I’ve ever had.

But the pier is considerably a lot more than only for fishing. Additionally, it is unbelievable to find the large boats with the Dolphins leading the way to come in and out of the channel. Perhaps best of all is the fact that quite rarely have I gone that there was not a few Manatee next to the pier swimming. It’s also common to see the giant sea turtles coming up for air.

Jetty Park

Jetty Park is among the most famous recreation areas in Brevard County. Designed shore wheelchairs give accessibility both to the pier and the shore. A renovated and enlarged building on the boardwalk houses an air-conditioned refreshment center and a lure and tackle store.

Jetty Park also includes a 126-site campground to complete RV hookups with choices from rustic tent places.


If you don’t know what this place is, I think you should. Jetty Park is a premier camping grounds that vacationers use to park their RVs, campers, pop tents, or just camping out on the beach in the literal sense. Jetty park offers many amenities, for example, you can park on or off the beach, enjoy shoreline fishing, off the peer shipping and watching the cruise ship dock and leave. Yes, it’s like your live version of watching the Titanic sail off into the sunset. With the campground having its private access to the beach, you never must worry about parking as well as long waits to even get to see the sand. Jetty Park has been providing families with a safe and vacation options.

You can take advantage of on shore salt water fishing and many have been successful in their efforts. They also provide showers and bathrooms for all its campers as well as a septic access for RVs. Each person also has their space so you never have to worry about someone taking your spot. Each lot is reserved and assigned to that camper.

You can find fees for day camping and parking at Jetty Park. For automobiles, day parking is $10.00. Camping fees range according to the season and the utilities contained.
