Saltwater Fishing Charters by Lagooner Fishing Guides
Banana River Fishing Guide Service
Florida's Premier Redfish Territory and Inshore Charter Fishing
Saturday February 24, 2018
Chicago chiropractor Nowell Abood, his son Anthony and friend Sam had a day on the water with a Banana River Fishing Guide Service with Captain Richard Bradley looking for redfish with light tackle.
As we started the day Nowell explained to their fishing guide, "Sam won't touch a fish, he's a chicken when it comes to fish slim! Can you help him overcome this fear?" Well, by the end of the day Capt. Richard had not persuaded Sam to even put a finger on a fish, but Sam did manage to pull in a three foot red fish, some small Banana River snook, and another red fish on the end of a fishing line. "Those slimy little finger mullet and pilchards in the cast net, no way! ick!"
"Nowell Abood is a heck of a gentlemen and brought some great kids. As a fishing guide, I have to commend Nowell for raising a great son with a heart and mind to listen and learn. Thank you Nowell for a most enjoyable day on the water with your family."
Need a professional Banana River Fishing Guide Service when visiting Central Florida? Call (321) 868-4953 and Ask for Captain Richard or his fishing mate Captain Gina. They'll be more than glad to talk to you in length about setting up a guide trip for redfish and other saltwater game fish species while you're visiting the area.
There's not a better way to spend a day than on the Banana River Lagoon chasing after elusive redfish. Some days the reds are schooling up and easy to find, but often you'll have to do some work and apply tactics for each situation and conditions as needed to hookup with red fish in the Banana River.
Sightfishing is by far the most rewarding way to catch red fish on the Banana River. Having your guide push you along the shallow water grass flats looking for tailing or moving redfish is as exciting as it gets when the wind conditions allow you to. But often you'll have to resort to either plugging away in areas your guide has confidence in or live baiting to produce even more if the bait is available.
"Our guide took us in some backwater for snook and tarpon. He hooked us up with a snook and showed us alligators and manatees, we'll be back for more fishing fun in the summer."

Nowell, Sam & Anthony
Banana River redfish are some of the biggest inshore red fish in the world. In the north part of the Banana River is a restricted area where access is by canoe or kayak as there is no motorized vessels allowed. Further north is the fully restricted waterways near Kennedy Space Center which is a breeding ground for redfish where they can spawn and feed without any human activity whatsoever. These areas are one of the reasons why the Banana River has so many red fish.
What Is A Fishing Guide Service?
Standard charter fishing typically involves loading up to six passengers on a boat and taking them out in the ocean to drink beers and wait for a bite. Guiding anglers in light-tackle fishing is about small personal service for up-to three anglers where each angler is offered opportunities to share in the experience on a more intimate level.
The Banana River Lagoon offers a great opportunity for anglers to hone their skills under the watchful eye of an experienced, seasoned fishing guide with a lifetime of knowledge to offer. Fishing guides offer the one-on-one service needed to get anglers to the next level in their fishing skills and endeavors.

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.
