I'm coming to Cocoa Beach on Jan 26-29 just to get away from this MN cold and snow for a few days. I would like to do some fishing without doing a charter for $500 for 1/2 day or something like that. I saw one from Cape Canaveral that was $60 for a full day on a big boat. I know we can go off the pier, but are there any other more affordable suggestions? What about night life and/or restaurants during that time? Is everything open? is there anything (besides going to RonJon - been there, done that a couple times) that is a must-do? I've been to Cocoa twice but only for a few hours at a time during a respite from the Disney insanity.
Thanks for any comments
