Surf fishing Cape Canaveral and Cocoa beach this week has been excellent. Fisherman have been bringing in slot redfish along with some nice big jack crevalles to give a fun fight. The shark bite has been great too for all the shark fisherman. Catching live croakers or cast netting live finger mullet has been the best bait for the redfish and jacks. Using a standard pompano rig to catch bait then switching over to a fish finder rig will give best opportunity to hook into the redfish or jacks. Rigging for sharks usually involve a couple feet of heavy wire attached to a 15 foot top shot of heavy mono ranging from 60-120 lb test. Next week is the start of the new moon cycle that usually throws the tides off resulting in less active fish.
