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.

February - 2018 Fishing Report
Florida's weather up-and-downs will determine if February will continue on as a typical winter month or warm into March toward spring. The Banana River has been a mixed bag of fishing with good days and fair days of fishing this year and depending on water temperatures and coldfronts the banana has been good during the colder days and so-so on the warmer days where Captain Richard has leaned toward the Indian River and Mosquito Lagoon for a more productive fishing day.
February - 2018 Fishing Forecast
Valentine fishing in February is one sweetheart of a fishing trip on the Banana River as temperatures and coldfronts make fish predictable as the weather. Coldfronts will send the sea trout to the holes and the warmth between fronts will cause them to enter the shallow water in numbers. The redfish are ever-present and there may be mixed opportunities with them, but they should be consistant. If we have a mild winter, the fishing for reds will probably be better but a harsh winter will be more challenging. On the Banana River look for redfish and large spotted sea trout and a smattering of black drum for fun. Typically the snook are a no-show and the tarpon can be in a couple of backwater locations if they feel up to it.

My wife and I have been on several trips with Captain Richard and have always had a great time and have usually caught a lot of fish, and would have had a wonderful day on the water even if we would not have been so lucky. I would recommend Lagooner to anyone wanting a fun day out fishing.
