Charter Fishing on the Banana River Lagoon
Florida's Finest Inshore Shallow Water Fishing
Thursday July 27, 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.

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.

Great Day of Fishing - My husband and grandson went out fishing with Captain Richard after his wife, Captain Gina was kind enough to pick them up at out hotel in Cocoa Beach. They had a great time even though it was cut just a bit short by a storm. My 15 year old grandson was worn out after fighting a huge amber jack for hours. He loved it! The only bad thing I can say is that they never sent us the photographs they promised, even after I checked back with them.
