Cooking Your Catch
The Cocoa Beach Florida is considered by many anglers as one of the best spots in the world for sight fishing redfish. This area has been the subject of numerous fishing shows due to the abundance of red fish, sea trout, snook, and tarpon that make their home in our rivers. In this area we have over 400 miles of the most exciting shallow water fishing you could ever dream of. So, stop dreaming about fishing the flats and watching us do it on TV and book your own trip today and let's go catch some memories.
I am a Full Time guide that specializes in Light Tackle Sight Fishing in Cocoa Beach. I ways born in Cocoa Beach Florida and currently fish these waters over 300 days a year and have over 30 years experience fishing this area.
If you have never sight fished the flats before, don't worry. I cater to all experience levels, from beginner to expert. My job is to help you catch fish. I will do everything I can to help you do just that without the stress and screaming you my have encountered with other guides. To see what we are catching now go to my fishing report.
When you fish with me expect to be provided with everything I expect when I hire a guide.
You can always count on
Most of the redfish we have caught over the past 5 years have averaged 35 inches with a few up to 55 inches. When the conditions are right, you can spot these monsters feeding on the flats 200 yards away. With the fish in your site, you sneak up on them, cast you line, and hold on. These fish are a absolute blast to catch on light tackle. After fighting a big red, you can count on going home with a sore arm.
Another fun fish to catch in the Indian and Banana Rivers is the spotted sea trout. It is common to catch them between 12 to 27 inches with an occasional gator (30+ inches). There are few things more exciting than hooking into a big trout on a top water lure.
I am a full time U.S. Coast Guard Licensed Captain with over 30 years experience fishing the Indian and Banana Rivers from Titusville to Cocoa Beach for redfish, trout, snook and tarpon. I currently fish from a 2005 Famous Craft 1800XL with a 2007 Mercury 150hp OptiMax Saltwater. It is one of the most comfortable and driest flats boats on the market.

I usually like to hit the water 30 minutes prior to sunrise unless the fish are only feeding latter in the day.
