Fired Up Fishing Charters wouldn’t exist without the hard work and dedication of our Cocoa Beach Fishing Captains and team members.

To make the perfect charter happen for your family it takes a lot of moving parts. From the phones, emails and texts to lining up the captains, sending out itinerary and of course choosing the perfect day to go.

Many ask whats too rough? Honestly there is no easy answer. I just ask that if we say its too rough then it is too rough. Believe that we want to take your family fishing but mother nature has other plans at times. We are glued to the weather at all times. 

 Read the stories about our Cocoa Beach Fishing Captains. Learn about their individual journey that has lead each of them to help others experience the fishing trip of a lifetime on Florida’s Space Coast.  A great line we always get is you have the dream job! The short answer is YES. Our Captains do this every single day. 5am getting ready then another few hours after your trip cleaning fish, gear and the boat. Yes we love our job but its not an easy one. Please show the Captains your love by leaving them a gratuity. We thank you so much.

Chris Cameron

Captain, Owner

Hello, my name is Captain Chris Cameron the proud owner & operator of Fired Up Fishing Charters out of Port Canaveral in Cocoa Beach, Florida. Most people interested in booking a Deep Sea Fishing or Shark Fishing Cocoa Beach trip want to get a good overview of the captains, the vessels they will be on, recent fishing catches and a little bit about the business. Here is a little bio about myself & how my fishing adventures begun.

I was born in 76′ in a small town on the south shore of Long Island called Seaford, New York. Some of the best memories I had growing up was fishing with my father & grandfather and them teaching me the ropes along the way. Rain or shine, day or night and even at times in the snow you could always find me… fishing. If my parents were looking for me they always knew where they could find me on my homemade platform attached to one of the bridges on the waterway leading out to the Atlantic with a fishing pole in hand. I had a great mom that would even bring me a cup of hot chocolate to stay warm on those colder nights in New York. One of my first jobs while I was still in school was at the local bait shop. This was a great job for me since I needed to earn some extra money & what better way than to do something I had a passion for which was fishing!! I was able to connect with the local fishermen in town and get the inside scoop on where to find the fish that were biting, what they were using to catch the fish and I would share with them some of my honey holes fishing spots as well. I learned so much about fishing, tackle, various baits/lures to use for different types of fish, all sorts of fishing knots, terminology and knowledge that I still use to this day.

After graduating high school I thought to myself, Hmmm what next… What would I want to do with my life? It was not too hard of a decision for me because I’ve had such a deep passion for my country since I was young. It quickly became a no-brainer… I would join the United States Navy so I could give back and serve like so many others before me. I got to do something so rewarding while being around the water all at the same time it really was a win-win for me. I was an 18 year old kid eager to grow up and evolve into a respectable man and was ready for whatever was put in my path. I ended up being in the Navy for eight years. I enjoyed it so much. I trained as an Aviation Mechanic and was assigned to various ships and aircraft carriers while fulfilling my dreams of being able to travel all over the world. I was able to fish when we were at different ports or while away on leave. After I fulfilled my 8 years in the Navy I moved to Orlando, Florida where I began fishing the waters of along the East Coast mostly in the Port Canaveral & Cocoa Beach area. My goal since I was young was to be a professional fishermen and I once I set my mind to something nothing can stop me. I started out as a mate on one of the top offshore fishing boats in Cape Canaveral and did that for a few years and gained a wealth of knowledge which helped prepare me for my Coast Guard Captain’s license which I’ve had for the last 20 years. In between being on the water I decided to become a full time Firefighter/Paramedic with a local Fire Department, a career I love and find so rewarding by helping others not to mention it’s a great schedule working 24 hours on shift & 48 hours off which gives me plenty of time for fishing. I formed Fired Up Fishing Charters in 2007 and over the last 15 years we’ve managed to grow considerably each year by having so many repeat charter guests by gaining their trust and respect by showing them exceptional customer service while putting them on fish to create an overall Epic Fishing Experience. I feel blessed to have a winning team stand behind me with some of the most awesome friendly, knowledgably fishing captains you could ask for. In June 2009 my first son, Cash, was born and in 2019 my second son, Kai, was born.  In 2015 I found and fell in love with Jennifer. She has been a blessing to me and the family and an unbelievable mom so far. Cash enjoys fishing too just as I did when I was a kid and I love being able to teach him the ropes at an early age just like my father did for me. This sums me up in a nutshell …. I’ve truly been blessed with a great life, a wonderful family and doing the things I love most in life. I look forward to being able to have you as Fired Up Charter customer and building a relationship and as I do with so many of my other charter guests.

Captain Arron is one hell of a kid! I say kid but he’s close to 30. You can tell the apple didn’t fall far from the tree. He is Capt Tylers “little” brother, Coming in at 6’6″. lol. He is one hell of a worker and never says no or I need a break. Just a hard charger and ready to roll. Arron was a full time tug boat operator in Port Canaveral,  He’s working on some big credentials. From a master tonnage captain and ship engineer. When he’s not navigating Port Canaveral, bringing in super tankers and cruise ships he’s got you and your family taken care of. We are fortunate to have him part of the family. He also has been fishing since he was a little man. Him and his brother were always fishing. To have this duo part of the family is an honor. Nothing I would not do for them. Capt Arron has been fishing with us over 5 years easy now and we hope many more.  Arron is a great asset to the Fired up Family.  Thank you Arron, Chris-

Debra Cameron

Mom aka “the secretary”

Running this business while working a full time job has been a challenge. Answering the phones and customer service in general is another full time job. Customer service to me is #1 and without it the business will fail. So when help was needed, Who better to ask than family. Mom/Mrs C has been instrumental these last few years in keeping the captains informed as well as the customers. She has followed my fishing passion and journey all my life so I know she gets it. She’s on point with the customer service as many of you know, lol.  And believe me…EVERY time you mention her name on the 5 star reviews,,,,,, I hear it for many days, lol lol. So if its not me on the phone you’ll get mommy. lol lol. Honestly whoever answers the phone or text, know it will be immediately!!

Offshore Charter Fishing Information

Logan Anderson

Deck Boss 

Logan Anderson was born right here in Central Florida and grew up fishing for bass. One morning his Dad took him out fishing with live shiners and after landing multiple 3 to 5 pound bass, he was hooked for life. Logan was fortunate enough to go on an offshore fishing trip with Captain Chris Cameron with Fired Up Charters when he was only ten years old. His first offshore trip showed him a whole other side to fishing and how his dream of fishing for a living could become a reality. He was blessed enough to have a bass boat growing up which allowed him to continue his love for bass fishing throughout middle and high school, doing small tournaments with his Dad every now and then. As time went on, he was hearing more and more about saltwater fishing and it sparked his interest. Not knowing anything about saltwater fishing, Logan and his Dad made a jump to get a bay boat and have not turned back since. After hooking into his first red fish and hearing that drag scream, he quickly forgot everything he knew about bass fishing and became a saltwater angler. Over time there was more and more interest in exploring deeper water in search of bigger and stronger fish. After being invited by his friend to go snapper fishing he got to experience the pull of a real fish. It blew his mind that the red snapper was able to put up a big enough fight that he questioned if he could even reel it in. After graduating high school in 2022, he knew it was time to start learning the offshore fishing scene with the best anglers in town in order to learn and develop into a well respected captain. Logan is studying for his business degree at UCF and during his spare time, you will find him at the boats as often as he can trying to learn as much as possible. You will hear him respond with “yes sir” and “no sir” as he knows that he has a long way to go before he will earn the respect from the other captains.
