It’s A Great Time to Buy A Boat

Let’s get down to brass tacks. I’m not going to sugar coat anything. Yes, we are experiencing unprecedented times. The last sixty days have been a bit of a whirlwind for all of us. However, more than ever, we are trying to find ways to interject some kind of normalcy in our lives. It’s exciting to see things opening back up, even if it is through a phased approach.
Unfettered Access to the Water
Here on the Space Coast, one incredible resource that was NOT taken away was our beautiful waterways. Brevard County lead the way in keeping our boat ramps open while many neighboring counties chose to do the opposite. This has allowed us to get out on the water with family and friends and keep on keeping on, if you’re picking up what I’m putting down. It’s fishing season baby and make no mistake, it’s going off! Brevard County has an incredibly diverse fishery. Weather permitting, on any given day, anglers can choose to fish offshore, nearshore, the inlets, surf, the lagoons, lakes and even the St. Johns River. How wonderful is that!
Recently, we have received stellar fishing reports. Some of the hot topics have been targeting big yellowfin tuna fishing the “otherside” of the Gulf Stream. Grouper season opened up with a bang! The snook bite has been great nearshore and around the inlets. Tons of bait are frequenting our nearshore waters and all the predators are following. Tarpon will be showing up soon and the lagoons have been consistently clear which is allowing for some incredible shallow water sight fishing and freshwater fishing has been on fire as well. You get my drift (pun intended).
Whatever type of fishing appeals to you most, Boater’s Exchange in Rockledge and New Smyrna Beach has the boat for you.
