Charter Fishing and Recreation Adventures

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.

September - 2017 Fishing Report
Big bull reds are showing up on the calmer days in the Banana River and elsewhere in the Lagoon system. Look for these large breeding fish to continue thru September and into the month of October if calm days continue. If the days appear to be windy and you are unable to spot the breeding fish, you should consider the Indian and Mosquito Lagoons as a better alternative to more traditional fishing.
September - 2017 Fishing Forecast
Here we go! It's September and the Banana River is cooling down and the fall mullet run will start. It's a great time to fish the Banana because the fish are looking to get those extra calories before the winter sets in. Food is plentiful and so ar the gamefish during September so count on good numbers of fish and a mix of several species. Redfish, snook, sea trout and tarpon along with jacks, ladyfish and sharks on the Banana River Lagoon as we approach start the fall. The winds tend to try and pickup in September, but it's often mild and calm for days and sometimes longer. Look for the early morning and late evening bite to be the best and then things to be slower in the mid-day.

We had an outstanding experience with Lagooner! To start, Captain Gina made the booking quick and easy. All follow-up and communication was just like she promised. Once we were on the water, Captain Richard made the day fun for everyone and put us on fish at every stop. I would recommend Lagooner to anyone looking for a charter in Cocoa Beach.
