trip description for Surf Fishing - 3 Hours in Melbourne Beach

These trips start out on the sand and surf at first light. One of the best parts of the area is the serenity of watching a beautiful sunrise over the Atlantic. Generally this is when the best fishing will start becoming active as the water starts to warm up and fish cruise the beaches taking advantage of the visibility. During your sunrise adventure Rio will cover everything from what baits work best, how to cast from the surf and most importantly how to locate fish! Beyond equipping you with the basics, Rio will teach you new techniques and will also educate you on why they work. Rio will always do everything he can to ensure you have a successful day but, please be mindful you are indeed Fishing and conditions will vary day to day. Rio will not tell you what you want to hear like some other guides just to take your money. He works very hard so you can enjoy your leisure time. Read More

He provides his customers with top notch gear, the best tackle, an iced down fish cooler with bottled water, beach chairs & everything else needed for a successful day of fishing. For bait, we will be using live sand fleas, fresh cut mullet and shrimp. We will set out four surf rods and have a spinning rod on standby to site fish big fish that swim bye. I will personally clean your fish right there on the beach and have gallon Ziploc bags to put the fillets in. Surf fishing is fun for all ages so bring the kiddos with you. Read More

    Max was a great guide. Made the trip fun and was friendly and knowledgable. We’d fish with Max again.

    Joel D. with Max A. of Panama City Beach, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    We were looking for a different kind of fishing trip and found it - we loved the surf fishing experience with Capt Max! He is a professional in every sense - he reached out to ensure we knew what to expect and where to meet. The beach location was easy to find & park and he had chairs & water waiting for us. Capt Max is very personable - loved hearing his story! The surf was very rough so we didn’t have high expectations, but Capt Max worked hard to find fish! We caught three nice pompano which he cleaned for us on the beach (they were delicious by the way!). Plus, we were treated to a beautiful sunset! What’s not to love?! No early morning, no bouncing around on a boat, spending time on the beach, great sunset, and a tasty dinner - perfect start to a beach vacay! Can’t wait to do it again and a big thank you to Capt Max!

    Steven K. with Max A. of Panama City Beach, Florida

    Stephen was an excellent guide. He helped my 11 year old son find different places to cast and even walked him into some deeper water to cast, which was exciting! He was prepared and very pleasant.

    Stacy W. with Steven H. of Sarasota, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    We recommend this outing to all. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. Our grandkids loved it and would like to do it again.

    Denise M. with Rio S. of Melbourne Beach, Florida

  • ★★★★★
    With a huge storm the day before and winds still keeping most boats off the water we did very well. 12 fish total with 2 being sharks. One fish we caught was bit in half! Great day on the beach! Learned so many new skills as well and Kathy is too notch at sharing her techniques and working diligently to keep all three of us busey with four rods. You won't find that from a boat. Honestly with four poles soaking, most double rigs totaling 7-8 baits in the water at all times seems much more productive than one rod per angler getting snagged on a reef or baits getting stripped. Being an avid angler myself I'm very impressed with my first time surf fishing under post cold front conditions when many fish get finiky and tuff to commit to feed. Thank you Kathy!!! I'll be back!

    Brian G. with Cathy S. of Flagler Beach, Florida

    We didn't get a hit, but learned about the process and had a great time. Tristan and Corbit were great. There may have been a snag with the booking and guide schedule coordination, but Tristan resolved the double booking glitch. Booking agent was unable to answer basic questions about the trip, but better information with call back.

    Julie P. with Tristan B. of Corpus Christi, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    This guys passion and dedication to doing what he loves is absolutely incredible and 100% genuine. Fantastic trip for my Son and I to be a part of Jason getting this 8’ 7” Tiger Shark notched in his belt this year.

    Daniel G. with Jason G. of Port Aransas, Texas

  • ★★★★★
    Did a half day trip with Tristan, and was thoroughly impressed. Very quick and efficient with set up and getting baits out. We caught 2 nice sharks and had a few more on. Tristan takes the time he needs to with less experienced anglers and gets them where they need to be. Very effective communicator when asked questions. The best guided experience I’ve had. If you’re going to be in the corpus area and want to go fish for sharks, I can’t recommend him enough!
