Charter Fishing on the Banana River Lagoon
Florida's Finest Inshore Shallow Water Fishing
Monday May 29, 2017
We often get anglers from the Central Part of Florida coming over and spending a day charter fishing, relaxing while catching a few fish in the Banana River Lagoon. After all it's some of the best angling opportunities in the nation and you stand a chance of catching some awesome game fish when you're visiting Florida's Space Coast and it's inshore waterways.
Cocoa Beach's Banana River Lagoon area near the Thousand Islands offers an easy area to access for a charter fishing trip. You can expect to catch red fish and trout almost year around and snook and tarpon when the weather warms. Our winters are known for being mild and attractive to the visiting northerners with the average temperature being in the 70°'s.
"These guys came over from Bithlow, Florida to go fishing off our coast only to find the ocean too rough. They quickly called Captain Gina and switched to the inshore waters of the Banana River Lagoon and caught some really nice snook and redfish."
-Capt Richard Bradley
Lagooner Fishing Charters
If you're wanting to go on a saltwater fishing charter in Central Florida, consider the Banana River and it's natural bays and wonders from Newfound Harbor and Sykes Creek to Cocoa Beach's Thousand Islands and the world famous No Motor Zone in it's northern end near Kennedy Space Center.
Whether it's live baiting, sight fishing, fly fishing or spin casting, you'll have a blast on a fishing charter in this rich natural ecosystem and saltwater estuary on Florida's east coast.
"I took some of my family to Cocoa Beach to go offshore fishing and we quickly turned it into an inshore fishing trip when the seas were too rough. Boy did we make the right decision. Snook, red fish and sea trout in the late morning with time left over for a drink that evening. Thanks for a great fishing trip!"
-The Bithlow Crew
What Is A Banana River Fishing Charter?
An inshore fishing charter usually involves one or two anglers and with an occasional third angler for companionship or interval fishing. It's very difficult to fish a third person on a small shallow water skiff, so consider this as a warning. The performance of an inshore fish goes down exponentially after two passengers.
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.

May - 2017 Fishing Report
Captain Richard has been spending most days on the Ocean during the month of May only to retreat into the Banana River Lagoon on windier days when the Atlantic is too rough. There's been some redfish and sea trout caught in the shallow waters of the Banana, but the real action has been in the ocean.
May - 2017 Fishing Forecast
May is one of the last month's of good fishing in the Banana River Lagoon until the summer months are over and the temperatures start to fall again in late September and October. May is awesome backwater snook time for Banana River anglers. Look for the early morning bite to produce great numbers of these hard hitting game fish. Fly fisherman only need to bring white mangrove flies in an assortment of sizes, but most snook will be in the single digit size so don't go past a 10 weight. Redfish will be plentiful and healthy sized in many areas of the Banana River and the sea trout will be staging around bait along sandbars and islands. Look for sea trout to slow down late in the month and as the summer temps rise the sea trout fishing will all but disappear excepting the smaller ones in the deeper water. Sebastian and the Mosquito Lagoon will be better sea trout areas in late May and into the summer.
