Central Florida Fishing Charter
Offering Fly and Spin Fishing Charters for Redfish, Trout, Snook and Tarpon. Fishing charters in Cocoa Beach, Titusville and Merritt Island Florida.
As a Cocoa Beach native I have had the pleasure growing up fishing the Central Florida waters and watching the trends that effect the day to day catching. Over the years I have watched the fishing go from great to not so good. Fortunately over the past 15 years I have watched this area come back to a World Class fishery where you can once again catch world record gator trout, bull redfish and tarpon that would please even Florida Keys fisherman.
One of the best things for me about guiding has been being able to help people experience what has been one of the passions of my life, catching fish that pull drag. Over the past 15 years I have been fortunate enough to have been able to make a living guiding full time on the water I grew up on and helping people of all experience levels make a few memories of there own.
I am one of the most laid back hardcore sight fishermen you will ever meet. I pole a boat spotting fish and setting them up for my clients to cast to.
So what's the difference between myself and other guides?
1. I don't yell or raise my voice. There isn't anything you can do I haven't seen or done myself.
2. I don't fish with my clients. I am being paid good money to help you catch fish not for you to watch me.
3. All my clients fish with the same equipment I fish with and I don't fish with junk.
4. I am a Cocoa Beach Native and I fish Cocoa Beach. I don't move all over Florida and try to keep up on how the fishing is somewhere else.
5. I don't have a larger than life ego. I always love it when I am asked if I'm the best guide in the area. My answer, I am on some days, but that's only before 6am when I'm the only guide on the water. I'm just a guide trying to help my clients hear a drag and put a few fish in the boat.
6. I just want my clients to have fun and help them catch a few fish a way that many have only dreamt of.
Cocoa Beach Fishing Guide Capt. Doug Blanton
Fishing Charters in Cocoa Beach, Titusville, Merritt Island and Cape Canaveral
Capt. Doug Blanton specializes in fly and light tackle sight fishing on the flats in Titusville and Cocoa Beach Florida. Capt Doug is the only full time guide in Cocoa Beach that exclusively sight fishes redfish, trout, snook and tarpon with artificial. People ask all the time if this is the same flats fishing they have seen TV. My answer: it's the same thing only better because YOU are the one catching the fish. On my trips, I will help you how to catch Trout, Redfish, Tarpon and Snook. If you have never sight fished before, don't worry, I cater to all fishing experience levels. I am a Cocoa Beach native and full time flats guide with over 35 years experience fishing Cocoa Beach, Titusville and the Merritt Island areas. I am located less than a hour from Walt Disney World and Orlando. My job is to help you catch fish without all the stress you may have experienced with other guides. My goal is for you to have a great time on the water and catch a memory that will last a lifetime. For more information, call 321-432-9470, or check out my Cocoa Beach fishing site. You can also watch some of the fishing videos taken on my charters or read my most resent Cocoa Beach fishing report.
Eco Tours of Cocoa Beach and Merritt Island
Personalized Eco-tours Dolphin, Manatees, Alligators and Much more
This isn't your normal Eco Tour. Prior to working as a fishing guide Capt. Doug worked as an environmentalist and the coordinator of two Habitat Restoration Programs in this area. He was the Conservation Chairman for CCA Florida's Habitat Restoration Program where he coordinated events that resulted in the planting of over 75,000 mangroves, and shoreline grasses. He has worked on restoration projects with NOAA, The Fish America Foundation, The EPA's National Estuary Program and The Indian River Lagoon Program to name a few. In 2003 Doug was awarded CCA's Conservationist Of The Year for his part in the Indian River Lagoon Restoration Project. Today, in addition to guiding fishing charters, Capt. Doug helps people see and responsibly experience our local wildlife from the water. Beware of most eco-tours. Uneducated eco tours do more harm to our environment than any other threat to our ecosystem. For more information about my Cocoa Beach Eco tours call 321-432-9470.
