Mangrove Snapper

Summer Fishing Fun at Sebastian Florida

Saturday April 21, 2018

I don't get out in with my kids enough, but when they were younger... This trip always stands out in my mind. Savannah, Mom & Mekenzie on a summer day trip at Sebastian for mangrove snapper in the flats. They limited us out in a couple of hours, got sunburned and then returned for a sunburned nap in the car home.

Look to July and August for productive mangrove snapper fishing in the shallows of the lagoon near Sebastian Inlet.

Fishing Reports

April showers bring May flowers and the redfish in April of 2018 have been flooding the flats as the water is warmed by the Florida sunshine blasting the shallow water flats. Cold winter weather is finally starting to leave us and on nice days we've seen some awesome fishing for giant redfish in smaller to medium sized schools in the Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River north of Titusville. Redfish are notorious for gathering up during the transition months into the summer and April is not disapointing any of my anglers. We've had days where there are redfish targets less than 100 feet from each other and if you didn't get a cast on the last one or blew the fish out, all you had to do is wait and another opportunity would present itself shortly. Since this is a Mosquito Lagoon report I'm only gonna mention here that you need to checkout the Indian River and Canaveral Fishing Reports about the Tripletail and Cobia catches. They're a great alternative for the flats fishing.

Spring of 2018 has the college kids coming to our area for a fun fishing trip with their family or friends. April is the last month before they hit the books again and it's a perfect opportunity to take advantage of what East Central Florida's Mosquito Lagoon and Indian River have to offer. Call (321) 868-4953 to set up a spring break fishing trip for you or your favorite college friend today.

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.

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.
