Sebastian Inlet Fishing Charters

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

Saturday April 21, 2018

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

April Charter Fishing
In Sebastian Florida

The spring at Sebastian can be an exciting time of the year to Charter fish a skilled fishing guide for snook and spotted sea trout. Look for everything to start sparking up as snook move from their winter haunts and hangouts toward the inlet for their summertime spawn at the inlet and on the beaches. The weather is great and it's a great time to take advantage of some fantastic Sebastian Inlet Fishing too.

Fishing Forecast

April - 2018 Fishing Forecast

April of 2018 should be a great spring for fishing in both inshore and offshore coastal waters of Central Florida. Look to the Mosquito Lagoon and Banana Rivers to produce redfish and sea trout consistently and then look toward the ocean and depending on the water temps, clear skies and wind the cobia will be on their way north and migrating past Canaveral towards their northern grounds on the mid-Atlantic seaboard. Central Florida's weather during the spring is usually no less than spectacular as the college spring breakers are winding up the end of their vacation and heading back to campus to finish up before summer break. Daytona Beach host several spring events from NASCAR Races, Bike Week and Spring Break activities while Cocoa Beach and it's Space Coast offer a much less crowded alternative for vacationers to seek a more secluded and restful Holiday. The temperatures are rising and the fishing should be heating up too in East Central Florida's Cocoa Beach.

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...
