Cocoa Beach Pier (No Fishing?)


Just east of Orlando on Cocoa Beach is a fishing pier that some say is the best in Florida. It is north of Sebastian Inlet Fishing Pier and just south of Titusville.

Read on to see why the Cocoa Beach Fishing Pier is an amazing place to fish. This may be your new pier to fish from, even if you do have to travel a bit to reach it!

Pier Hours?

Oh no. They closed the Cocoa Beach Pier for fishing. No fishing is allowed. This started when Covid hit, but it appears they may not be bringing fishing back to the pier at all now! The current rule states that there is no fishing on the pier or within 100 yards of either side of the pier.

I hope they bring it back, I heard this was an amazing place to fish. Some call it the best place in Florida to fish.

Let’s see what happens. If you notice they allow fishing again, will you let me know using the contact link here?

My name is Vern Lovic. I grew up in Pennsylvania fishing for trout in the streams and bass in the lakes. I’ve fished both coasts of Florida for more than a decade, but I’ve been primarily on the West Coast around St. Petersburg. I fish mostly from a Kayak and pier along with wade-fishing and shore fishing but I occasionally will go out on a boat with one of my friends.
