Fishing in Cape Canaveral, Florida: Goliath Grouper

Fishing in Cape Canaveral, Florida, can be marvelously exciting. Or wonderfully relaxing. Or just unbelievable. The latter is today’s topic of conversation, the goliath grouper. This member of the grouper family is an Eastern Atlantic fish, and the good news is this: they like shallow, tropical waters (depths of 16 to 164 feet). Can you come into contact with a goliath grouper here in Cape Canaveral? Absolutely.

The History of Cape Canaveral: The Space Race

As Cape Canaveral entered the first third of the 20th century, it was obvious how this once only-get-there-by-boat collection of communities (Canaveral Harbor, Artesia, De Soto Beach, and Journalista Beach) were becoming more advanced than the finishing communities that they used to be. The Evening Star Reporter was founded, and the area started to realize that it was more than just waterways. [vc_separator type="transparent" position="left" color="" border_style="dashed" width="" thickness="" up="10" down=""] Congress approved the construction on of a deepwater port in 1929, but it didn’t get started until decades later.

The History of Cape Canaveral, Florida: Growing With the Times

We’ve discuss previously how Cape Canaveral started after millions of years underwater, talked about the early animals that used to live in the area (from camels to wooly mammoths), and spent some time talking about how the local Native American population had a significant impact on the area, especially during the time that early Europeans were coming to settle in America. [vc_separator type="transparent" position="left" color="" border_style="dashed" width="" thickness="" up="10" down=""] Today, we’re going to jump ahead a few hundred years to the 1800s.

The History of Cape Canaveral: Ais and Timucuans

While Cape Canaveral spent much of its history underwater, when it finally formed, the sea levels surrounding it were 20-30 feet below current levels. Early life in Cape Canaveral included camels, bison, mammoths, mastodons, and giant armadillos mixed in with the animals you can still find here today—rabbits, squirrels, deer, opossums, and raccoons. All of this early life was also coupled with the bounty of marine life pulled from the sea, making Cape Canaveral a prime location for living because of its plentiful resources that helped sustain life. At one...

The History of Cape Canaveral: The Beginning

Cape Canaveral, one of the nation’s most famous locations, wasn’t always Cape Canaveral. In fact, it wasn’t always anything at all. Cape Canaveral was non-existent, as it was underwater for most of its history. [vc_separator type="transparent" position="left" color="" border_style="dashed" width="" thickness="" up="10" down=""] Today, as far as 10-15 miles inland, construction crews constantly dig up evidence of marine life. Sea shells inherent to the area and dune lines are easily discovered inland, offering more proof that that for much of history, Cape Canaveral simply didn’t exist.
