November is Fishing Month

November's Inshore Fishing Is Special

The Mosquito Lagoon & Sebastian Inlet Showing Their Colors

I've never considered myself a pompano expert by any means, but this year's run of these tasty little beach runners have dominated parts of the inshore and nearshore waters of Brevard and Indian River Counties. 
Sandfleas and "goofy jigs" are a favorite to use when looking for these delicacies from the the salty waters of the Indian River and Beaches.  I've had several days were double-digit numbers have been the norm and then, well other days I've felt like I have a long way to go to be a pompano expert.

Everyone likes a good fight when it's on the end of a fishing rod. The ladyfish have been a favorite for those wanting to tussle with an anxious and fighter that's often called the "Poor Man's Tarpon".  Jumping is their specialty and there's always a smile when you bring one into the boat for a photo.  Ladyfish are often used for cut bait for other gamefish and redfish prefer ladyfish chunks above all else.

Don't count on the snook every November, but if warm weather and the fall mullet run to continue, you'll find plenty of lineside action on the lagoon, in Port Canaveral and Sebastian Inlet.  Snook are an inshore favorite and are great eating too.  The four-inch slot limit is demanding, but the fish is a worthy opponent indeed.

Sea Trout and Redish are staging into their inshore holes and grassflat areas of the Mosquito Lagoon north of Cocoa Beach and east of Orlando, Florida. Take advantage of the fall and winter months for these gamefish.

Red Dawn on the Mosquito Lagoon

Early mornings have been the trick to getting redfish on the shallow water grass flats.  Tailing schools of all sizes have been making their appearances almost anywhere you stop and concentrate.

Most anglers practice catch and release but some choose to keep a couple for the dinner table.  

The key to summertime fishing in Florida is go early and be the first one on the spot.


Both artificial and natural bait are productive but generally the bigger fish like natural baits as the seem more educated.

Spring Snook at Sebastian

Spring and Early Summer Snook Bite

Inshore and Inlet fishing for Sebastian and Indian River Snook is about as good as it gets when the tides and winds cooperate.  You can expect a mixed bag of redfish, gator trout and some mighty nice sized snook both in the inshore waters of the Indian River Lagoon and the tidal areas inside Sebastian Inlet.

Fishing Reports

January - 2018 Fishing Report

The Banana River comes alive during the colder months of year and January is the peak season for deep hole trout, redfish and juvenile black drum. We've been fishing the deeper canals and slews with success during the cold fronts when the water is cold and also catching some great sized fish on the flats adjacent to these holes. Look for the Banana River to improve as the winter gets colder and the fish transition to their winter haunts in pursuit of cold, stable water. Look for mature fish to seek warmth on the shallow shorelines nearby.

Fishing Forecast

January - 2018 Fishing Forecast

Is it going to be an Indian Summer this January or possibly a deep freeze Polar Vortex? These are the questions that all fishing guides want to know. Depending on how this winter plays out with temperatures, winds and other conditions will dictate how our fishing will pan out in January. Unless the water is churned up by high winds, January will produce some of the cleanest and clearest water of the year in Central Florida as colder water kills of plankton life in the lagoons and mild northeast winds often push in clearer water in the ocean. Look for great inshore fishing in the Mosquito Lagoon and Northern end of the Indian River toward Titusville. If the winds and water are all frothed up it can be a crap shoot for fishing in almost every inshore locations and will shutdown all offshore fishing due to small craft warnings and safety warnings. However, between fronts, look for some of the best fishing of the year in January both inshore and offshore in Central Florida.

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.

My wife and I have been on several trips with Captain Richard and have always had a great time and have usually caught a lot of fish, and would have had a wonderful day on the water even if we would not have been so lucky. I would recommend Lagooner to anyone wanting a fun day out fishing.
