Sebastian Inlet Fishing Charters

I'm A Believer In A Chartered Fishing Trip In East Central Florida

Tuesday October 24, 2017

Chartering a Fishing Guide out of Sebastian, Florida can be the highlight of a Florida Vacation explains one angler that went fishing with Captain Richard Bradley of Lagooner Fishing Guides. "My arms are sore from that last one!" Shouted Doug Sanders after bringing in an 18 pound Jack Crevalle on light spinning tackle. "Let's do it again!" Doug and Captain Richard Bradley had an exceptional day catching and releasing too many fish to count including tarpon, jack crevalle, spotted seatrout, spanish mackeral and more. Topping off the day, Doug caught a 32 inch spotted seatrout that was well over ten pounds, a life-time achievement for many anglers and a memory he'll take with him for the rest of his life.

Not everyday is a banner day like the one described above with Doug and Captain Richard, but often the fishing at Sebastian Inlet and it's surrounding areas is very productive and fun. "Sebastian Inlet is a small portal between the Indian River Lagoon and the Atlantic Ocean. Approximately every six hours a tidal change occurs and the fishing can swap from redfish to snook in a few short hours or even minutes." explains Captain Richard. A typical day of fishing in south Brevard County can include casting artificial's against a mangrove bank or slinging livebaits on a shallow water grass flat. Typically there's a target time for great inlet fishing if the wind and waves cooperate and possibly even a time nearshore in the ocean for anything from barracuda to cobia and snook.

"I've been fishing with Captain Richard for years and I've NEVER had a bad experience... He's a true professional the enjoys fishing and his customers as well as the outdoors."

Sebastian Inlet's Fishing Charter Guide

I'm Captain Richard Bradley of Lagooner Fishing Charters and I regularly fish out of Sebastian Inlet, Florida. I'm a full time fishing guide that's dedicated my whole life to fishing and helping anglers experience what I've done since the early 1960's in Brevard County from the Indian River to the Atlantic Ocean.
Charter fishing is not my hobby or my part-time (make a boat payment) endeavor. It's what I do solely to support my wife and children and I think it shows in my success as a leading fishing charter Captain on Florida's east coast. I travel around my fishing territory seasonally and really like the late fall, winter and early spring at Sebastian Inlet. The fall produces some great night time snook fishing and the winter is awesome for redfish and sea trout. Spring is a time of excitement as the air is warming and the fish move toward the feed or spawn (depending on the species). Ask Captain Gina when you call us what's biting and where when you make your way toward Sebastian and Florida's Space Coast.

Sebastian Inlet Fishing

October Charter Fishing
In Sebastian Florida

Charter fishing during the fall is usually reserved for our experienced anglers as much of the fishing is targeted at night. A rough inlet and strong currents require a fishing charter captain to be sharp and stay on the wheel at all times. Helping anglers tie rigs and bait hooks is only done at the beginning of the trip and you are expected to be on your own for that kind of stuff after that. Don't think you'll be left alone the action is usually fast paced and frantic so your guide will be giving advice and coaching the anglers as they make power drifts and set up on fish. During the daylight hours before the night bite, anglers will help gather fresh bait for the evening and then if there's time left over, you'll be treated to some great inshore fishing in the Indian River Lagoon and Sebastian River.

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.
