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.

July - 2017 Fishing Report
One of the hottest months of the years is also one of the poorest months on the Banana River as the boat traffic and blazing temperatures have water in the high 80° Mark. Look for a mixed bag of gamefish and if you're serious about redfish or larger sea trout start your outing well before daybreak.
July - 2017 Fishing Forecast
It's hot and July proves to turn the temperatures up to firecracker levels as the Daytona 500 approaches and so does our nation's independence day. You won't find many cooperative fish on the Banana River Lagoon during July unless it's during the early morning hours or late evening. The lagoon's lack of tidal flow is it's downfall during the warmer months and extremely hot summers can almost stop the fish bite altogether during the daylight hours. Look northward toward the Mosquito Lagoon or south at Sebastian Inlet for better redfish and sea trout results. Snook can make a pretty good showing during the cooler mornings, but after the sun comes up to mid-morning strength look for the fishing to slow down quickly. You'll find excellent fishing out of Port Canaveral and on the beaches during July so ask your guide about fishing close to the beach during July and you won't be disapointed.

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.
Captain Richard worked hard to put fish in the boat. We were able to bring in a few big Reds and some trout, and a couple keepers to take home for dinner. It's always the hope to be able to catch lots of fish, but fishing is fishing and there are no guarantees; the time of the year we travel to Florida also has an impact on our fshing success. This last trip out with Captain Richard my wife came along and thorougly enjoyed the experience and catching the big Reds. She is looking forward to our next trip to Florida and another fishing trip with Captain Richard.
