Charter Fishing on the Banana River Lagoon
Florida's Finest Inshore Shallow Water Fishing
Sunday September 24, 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.

September - 2017 Fishing Report
Big bull reds are showing up on the calmer days in the Banana River and elsewhere in the Lagoon system. Look for these large breeding fish to continue thru September and into the month of October if calm days continue. If the days appear to be windy and you are unable to spot the breeding fish, you should consider the Indian and Mosquito Lagoons as a better alternative to more traditional fishing.
September - 2017 Fishing Forecast
Here we go! It's September and the Banana River is cooling down and the fall mullet run will start. It's a great time to fish the Banana because the fish are looking to get those extra calories before the winter sets in. Food is plentiful and so ar the gamefish during September so count on good numbers of fish and a mix of several species. Redfish, snook, sea trout and tarpon along with jacks, ladyfish and sharks on the Banana River Lagoon as we approach start the fall. The winds tend to try and pickup in September, but it's often mild and calm for days and sometimes longer. Look for the early morning and late evening bite to be the best and then things to be slower in the mid-day.
