Variety of Shark Species

Cocoa Beach is home to a variety of different types of sharks. Common species that can be caught while shark fishing include the blacktip, bull, and hammerhead sharks. Exotic species such as the tiger and mako sharks can also be found in the area. Each species offers its unique challenge and excitement.

The diversity of shark species in the area provides anglers with ample opportunities to catch trophy-sized specimens. The blacktip shark is one of the most commonly caught in these waters. These mid-sized predators reach up to six feet in length and are generally considered relatively docile, making them an ideal choice for first-time shark anglers. They are often found near reefs or areas with a high concentration of fish.

For those looking for a more thrilling fishing experience, the bull shark is also plentiful around Cocoa Beach. These strong swimmers can grow up to eleven feet long, and their aggressive nature makes them popular for those seeking a challenge when out at sea. Unlike blacktips, bull sharks can often be found closer to river mouths or locations that experience high levels of runoff from freshwater sources.

One of the more unique types of shark found in Cocoa Beach are the hammerhead and Mako Sharks. The hammerhead stands out for its distinct hammer-shaped head and can grow to about 20 feet. At the same time, the Mako Shark’s naming originates from its sleek body that helps it swim fast, allowing for acrobatic leaps out of the water, but only growing to around 14 feet. Both types of sharks can be dangerous to humans and have been known to attack people; however, their relatively lower population density than other shark species may not pose as much of a threat as others.

The Tiger Shark is one of the most formidable apex predators found in cocoa beach, with good reason. These carnivorous sharks grow to a maximum length of around 20 feet, giving them almost unstoppable force when hunting their prey. They derive their name from the iconic tiger-like stripes that adorn their body and are known for displaying aggressive behavior toward humans. Consequently, landing one on your rod or line makes for an incredible and exhilarating struggle as you battle against the sheer power of this magnificent sea creature. Few thrills can compare to such a test of skill and nerve!
