There is a book called "Indian River Flats Fishing Guide" that has arial photographs of the whole area showing roads, public access spots, etc. Sort of must have if you are going to do much fishing.
And...if you're new to the area, the redfish in Mosquitto Lagoon is generally held to be world class. There is snook at Sebastian Inlet, both the inlet and back water, plus tarpon. Trout pretty much everywhere. So if cuda is your interest great but there is a lot of other really good fishing in the area. Have fun.

Thanks for the info, ill check out that book. I was planning on fishing for alot of the other fish in the area, I just really want to land me a cuda. I'm from up in Maine, where there really isn't alot of large game fish like that. While home i mostly fished for stripped bass on a spinning rod, till I found fly fishing and then it was all inland fishing in rivers streams and lakes. This will be my first opportunity to try saltwater fly fishing so I'm really excited for this weekend.

Sorry, but there's no Barracuda in the Indian or Banana Rivers; down by Sebastian Inlet you may find some small ones in the river just inside the inlet. Most are offshore and would be very hard to target.

The good news we have many other inshore/shallow water fish available, like red drum, black drum, spotted sea trout, snook, and tarpon.
