Charter Fishing and Recreation Adventures

Friday June 22, 2018

Charter Fishing can be and affordable and enjoyable way to spend a day in the outdoors with your friends and family. When you're visiting central Florida whether for business or pleasure, the closest fishing destination is the Banana River Lagoon which is directly east and less than an hour away from many of the conference, tradeshows and attractions that Orlando has to offer.

The Banana River is a natural watershed nestled between Merritt Island and Cocoa Beach directly east of Orlando. This saltwater lagoon offers popular gamefish such as the redfish, spotted sea trout, jack crevelle and many other light tackle sportsfishing angling species. "I take business people and vacationing families out all year long on the Banana River Lagoon", Explains Captain Richard Bradley of Lagooner Fishing Guides. "During the winter months there are plenty of tradeshows, business conferences and networks going on in Central Florida and many decide to take a day or two fishing between events or on lay days. Vacationers and families often spend spring break, holidays and summer days fishing the nearby waters while they visit themeparks, beaches and resorts. I even get bikers during Daytona's bikeweek and BikeToberfest and the variety of people keeps it interesting and they all go away smiling."

Lagooner Fishing Guides is based out of Cocoa Beach taking their customers on the three major inshore saltwater lagoons, the Banana River, Indian River and Mosquito Lagoons are all within easy driving distance of Orlando and Cocoa Beach. The closest fishing that is literally a direct shot straight east on State Road 528 or the Beachline is the Banana River Lagoon. It's popular amoung people with less time to spend traversing northward toward the Mosquito Lagoon or south to the popular Sebastian Inlet on the Indian River Lagoon.

Many anglers opt to do a half day on the Banana River Lagoon and spend the remainder of their day either visiting the nearby beaches or taking a tour of Kennedy Space Center which is located on the shorelines of the lagoon and the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge where you can often witness a space launch if you're lucky enough to time your trip during one of these spectacular events.

Booking a fishing charter is as easily done as filling out the form on this page or simply calling Lagooner Fishing Guides at (321) 868-4953 and asking for a day of inshore or nearshore fishing. Captain Richard Bradley was raised from a young child on the Banana River Lagoon and will give you the best opportunity and most enjoyable trip when you're visiting Central Florida.

Fishing Reports

June - 2018 Fishing Report

The summer is upon us and June is the beginning of the hottest time of the year. Typically Captain Richard is fishing the ocean during this month so his reports are not as fulfilling about the Banana River but some of my friends have been doing fine with small sea trout, jacks and ladyfish around the spoil islands and deeper dropoffs.

Fishing Forecast

June - 2018 Fishing Forecast

Forecasting the Banana River in the month of June is challenging as the water temperatures rise the bite tends to go down so that's why you'll find many anglers pursuing other places like Port Canaveral or Sebastian Inlet area where there's tidal flow and water exchange. The Banana is a unique estuary because of it's distance from any open ocean inlets and bays. Because of this it's important to realize that the temps can often get into the mid 80's and higher causing the fish to be less receptive to feeding and more likely to seek cooler places under docks or simply migrate into more comfortable waters.

TripAdvisor Review

Review / Trip Advisor

Inshore and Offshore Charter Fishing near Orlando and Cocoa Beach, Florida. Catch redfish, sea trout, tarpon, snook and many other saltwater gamefish aboard the world famous Lagooner flats fishing boat with renowned Captain Richard Bradley.

Amazing start to an amazing vacation! - Port Canaveral was our first stop on a 7 day Norwegian cruise out of New York City... When I didn't find any fishing excursions listed through NCL, I did a Google search and emailed a few different charter outfits. Capt. Gina was quick to respond and super to deal with. When she came right to the ship to pick us up for our trip she greeted us with a warm hug like we were lifelong friends. Capt Richard kept us on fish the entire time. We had many laughs and great conversation. I really enjoyed hearing him speak about his family. Caught some beautiful King Mackerel and a few other fish, WHAT A DAY! I would recommend Lagooner to anyone!
