My name is Captain Bryan Mincey. I am U.S. Coast guard licensed Charter Captain and have been fishing on Florida’s East Coast for over 30 years. This has always been my dream and I love to put my clients on some nice fish. I enjoy seeing the pure joy it brings to reel in a big one. Whether this is your first time fishing, or you’re an expert: come inshore or offshore fishing with Southern Thunder Charters. Whether you’re a Florida local or visiting the great area of Melbourne or Cocoa Beach – Captain Bryan can take you on a great fishing adventure. The 19ft. Center Console boat is perfect to fit four anglers comfortably. You have a choice of inshore/offshore fishing, half day or full day. All ages are welcome to come aboard, and trip prices include all tackle, bait, and fishing license for all anglers. We also have ice and bottled water in a large cooler on the boat so we can stay hydrated in the hot Florida sun. I’ll also clean and package your catch for a fresh fish dinner! You should bring a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen. Also feel free to bring any other beverages or snacks/lunch to put in the cooler if you would like. With Southern Thunder Charters you can expect to catch Snook, Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Red Snapper, Grouper, Black Drum, Cobia, Sailfish, Spanish Mackerel, King Mackerel, Amberjack, Mahi-Mahi, and more! Melbourne Beach is located south of Cocoa Beach. If you’ve never been here, it’s a great place to vacation and spend time outdoors. Of course you have the beach, but there’s also the unlimited, year round fishing. The Indian river is a 156-mile-long estuary where salt water from the Atlantic Ocean mixes with freshwater. So we literally have water to the left of us, as well as the right – all filled with fish ready to be caught! Fishing the Indian River and Atlantic Ocean is a great way to spend your day – book your next fishing trip with Captain Bryan and get ready to fish the day away!

Full Day Trip Inshore
It was a super windy day, and the snook bite was dreadfully slow. A few different live baits, and nothing was working. Brian asked me if I was comfortable in the rougher water, and we headed out. Once almost at our limit for mangroves and muttons, Brian’s keen eye spotted a random group of dorado! Hooked up on 3 within a few minutes. Lost one and landed two. Even put a trigger in the cooler! It was a great day on the water, despite the wind and rough water. Brian absolutely loves his job, and was equally passionate about making sure “I” was enjoying the trip and landing fish. Top notch trip!

Half Day Inshore (AM)
Captain Bryan is accommodating, punctual, extremely knowledgeable and kind. I asked that we target Sheepshead and trout and caught my pbs on both. Not only did I enjoy the fishing but the company was stellar. He filleted the fish very well and I can’t wait to cook dinner!! I highly recommend this family run company and shout out to Ashley his wife / coordinator for being super detail oriented and very sweet. TIGHT LINES!!!!

Half Day Inshore (AM)
Beautiful day of fishing for my son’s birthday. Thanks Capt. Bryan. Capt. Bryan showed us how to get bait fish, and then put us on the fishing spot right away and we caught all the legal snapper we wanted along with some other fun catches. We also got to do some trolling and we caught a couple sharks while trolling for other fish. Of course we released them, but they were fun to reel in. We got a lot packed into 1/2 day thanks to Capt. Bryan. Highly recommended. We’ll plan on doing it again, and maybe a full day next time.

We had a great weekend to get offshore so we headed out for some bottom fishing. Caught and released a few Grey Trigger fish and some Red Snapper. The sharks were pretty thick out today!...

Well today ended up being a slower day on the fish bite. The weather this time of year sometimes has the fish doing thier own thing. We still got this guy some Triple tail. He had a blast reeling em in....
