Space enthusiasts and nature-lovers collide in a special place on Florida’s East Coast: Titusville, Florida. Titusville is a mid-size city located along the Indian River, neighboring Cape Canaveral and Cocoa Beach. You have, no doubt, heard of those cities: Cape Canaveral is the home of Kennedy Space Center and Cocoa Beach is the surf capital of Florida. Titusville has the distinct privilege of having a front row seat to all the action. It’s a unique town, apart from its neighbors, in that the topography and nearby ecosystems create a top destination for fishermen and women. Freshwater lakes and saltwater rivers offer a variety of options for those looking to bend a rod in Titusville. There’s certainly something for everyone here, making the city a fantastic fishing destination.
Anglers looking for freshwater fishing in Titusville need to look no further than the St. John’s River. This north-flowing river is known as one of the best largemouth bass fisheries in the world. It’s very common to find lunkers over ten pounds in the St. John’s River. Largemouth bass are identified by their underslung jaw and are typically greenish gray with dark blotches along its midsection. You can find them near the shoreline when the temperatures are cooler (in the early morning or just after dark), they are usually around submerged tree roots and structures looking for food. Drift a pinfish (shiner) and you will get their attention. The older, larger ones are generally more difficult to get to the hook, they have been fooled too many times. But the juveniles are happy to take the bait. Once your hook is set get ready for a good fight. Largemouth bass like to jump and thrash in an attempt to shake the hook loose. After you land the lunker, be sure to take a quick picture before releasing back into the water; all largemouth bass are catch-and-release throughout Florida. Another popular fishing spot in Titusville is Fox Lake Park. Anglers will fish along the shore and hook up on largemouth bass, bluegill, and crappie. Located off State Road 405, the park is open from sunrise to sunset and is a great place for families to enjoy Florida’s diverse wildlife.
The Indian River is to the east of Titusville and offers a bountiful fishery for anglers of all experience levels. The fish are more active in the early morning hours after sunrise, or at the end of the day as the sun goes down. Anglers fishing these waters will no doubt find themselves some redfish and trout. Redfish, also known as red drum, are part of the drum family along with black drum. They are bottom dwellers that live near structure such as grassy or muddy bottoms. It’s very common to find redfish over 50 pounds in the Indian River. Those looking to hook a red will drift fish shrimp or crab along the bottom. If you sight fish for reds in the shallow water you can often see their backs and tails disturbing the top water. Use a popping cork, a top-water lure that imitates shrimp and crab; this will get the reds attention like a dinner bell. Trout, also known as spotted seatrout or speckled trout, is another popular fish in the Indian River. They also feed on shrimp and crab but prefer live over cut bait. They school together in the deeper parts of the river. Anglers will use light tackle or fly rods when fishing trout. Just a few miles east of Titusville is Mosquito Lagoon, a very popular destination for Central Florida anglers looking for a great inshore fishing trip. The lagoon is untouched by civilization and the southend is not affected by tides, creating a unique ecosystem that’s perfect for large redfish. Other inshore species targeted by Titusville inshore charters include snook, tarpon, jack crevalle, flounder, and black drum just to name a few.
Just on the other side of Cape Canaveral is the bountiful Atlantic Ocean. Titusville visitors can access the ocean from Port Canaveral and target a variety of open water sportfish or reef species. Titusville charters going for an offshore excursion will typically schedule a 6-hour trip; this gives customers plenty of time to travel to the fishing grounds and spend quality time bending the rod. A popular Titusville offshore trip is trolling for mahi mahi, also known as dolphin or dorado. Mahi have vibrant colors and often grow up to 4 feet long. They are a top water species, found near floating debris or grass beds. Titusville captains will troll with cut bait such as false albacore or ballyhoo. Once a mahi is landed the captain will keep the hooked fish in the water off the back of the boat so other anglers on the boat can continue to use light tackle to cast at the remaining members of the school. Mahi are a schooling species and when one starts eating it starts a frenzy, making it easy for captains to get a nice haul in a short amount of time.
The options for your Titusville fishing charter are abundant: freshwater fishing for largemouth bass, Indian River fishing for redfish, or even offshore trolling for mahi mahi.
