Another Paragraph in the Article

Florida has an abundant number of shark species along it's coastline including the Blacktip Shark, Bonnethead Shark, Bull Shark, Great Hammerhead Shark, Lemon Shark, Nurse Shark and Tiger Shark. Each shark is unique in it's habits, territory and feeding activities.

Coastal Sharks are generally found on the continental shelf along Florida's coastlines. Central Florida's east coast has a broad shelf extending out as far as 32 miles offshore from Port Canaveral where the depths of over 300 feet generally mark the boundries of coastal sharks in the scope of this article.

Most of these sharks can also be found along the beaches and inshore or possibly in the freshwater tributaries that trickle into the Indian River Lagoon and the Intracoastal Waterway. Both Inlets in Brevard County can be home to a large host of coastal sharks and are traversed by almost all species of these sharks that are unique to Florida.

Remarks

Unlike most bony fish, shark's eggs are fertilized inside the female's body. The male shark has "claspers," extensions of the pelvic fins that are used to transfer sperm to the female and fertilize her eggs. Most sharks give birth to live young, but some release eggs that hatch later.

Fishing Forecast

June - 2017 Fishing Forecast

June of 2017 is looking to be a hot summer with hot fishing off of East Central Florida near Cocoa Beach. Orlando visitors should anticipate the warm weather and great fishing that coastal and offshore fishing provides in the warm Atlantic Ocean this time of year. Last year in 2016 we saw many tarpon exceeding 100 pounds caught off the Brevard County beaches along with a good amount of sharks, king mackerel and really big Jack Crevelle that kept things interesting. Looking forward to this year's forecast on the Space Coast remember that the coastal waters along the Atlantic seaboard and Ocean will probably be the most productive fishing during the month of June and as we look in to August the ocean will look to be the most inviting destination for anglers in the heat of the Central Florida Summer.
