Saltwater Fishing Charters by Lagooner Fishing Guides

Inshore Fishing Guide

Central Florida's Saltwater Lagoons

Monday October 23, 2017

Captain Richard Bradley of Lagooner Fishing Guides runs inshore fishing charters on the Intracoastal Waterway on Florida's east coast. Specializing in the Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River, this Captain has spent a lifelong endeavor to seek out shallow water species like redfish, black drum, spotted sea trout and other saltwater inshore species.

I've been fishing Florida's Inshore waters since I was a child with my father and look forward to helping others explore my backyard lagoons.
- Captain Richard

Inshore saltwater fishing is done in small shallow water boats called "Flats Boats". Captain Richard is an expert at finding the fish in his local waterways in the lagoons bordering his home Merritt Island where the Canaveral National Seashore and the Atlantic Ocean contribute local wildlife and fish to them.

Fishing Reports

October - 2017 Fishing Report

The summer is over and the autumn winds are starting to prevail as we head toward the holidays and winter. With water temperatures on the fall and water levels above average you can find good numbers of fish very close to the shoreline and against the mangroves. Mullet are in their peak run and will start to subside as we enter November, but bait, comfort and the end of the redfish spawn should keep anglers busy during the month of October. Lie mullet will trump any given bait during the fall on most days and if you're lucky enough to run into a school of big breeding redfish, it typically doesn't matter what you throw at them, just be ready for these fish that often exceed forty pounds.

Wrapping up the October report, we have been catching snook along the deeper shorelines with the seasonally high water, breeding redfish are coming to an end, but you have a chance to catch them and the fall mullet fun will keep the gamefish interesting into November.

Review / Trip Advisor

Inshore and Offshore Charter Fishing near Orlando and Cocoa Beach, Florida. Catch redfish, sea trout, tarpon, snook and many other saltwater gamefish aboard the world famous Lagooner flats fishing boat with renowned Captain Richard Bradley.

BIG fish - Capt. Richard knows how to put you on the fish!! He is a very knowledgeable guide and knows the waters well. We were on big reds and trout within minutes of the leaving the dock and ventured about the lagoon to catch different species. It was fun and exciting. The scenery in the Lagoon is remarkable! Richard’s boat was well...
