Saltwater Fishing Charters by Lagooner Fishing Guides
Professional Orlando Fishing Guide
Full-Time Saltwater Inshore & Offshore
Tuesday April 25, 2017
Fishing with an professional Orlando fishing guide can be one of the most enjoyable experiences that central Florida has too offer. Whether you are in town on business or visiting Orlando's theme parks from Disney to Universal Studios, it's relaxing way to spend a day while fishing in the pristine saltwater lagoons minutes away from the Orlando International Airport. Traveling east approximately thirty eight miles from the airport will take you through Florida's cypress hammocks and live oak forest to the Indian River Lagoon or slightly northward to Mosquito Lagoon and it's saltwater estuaries filled with snook, tarpon, redfish and spotted sea trout. Our professional fishing guides will keep you busy fishing for these Orlando gamefish and soaking up that famous Florida sunshine. After a day of fishing with an expert guide, you can head to the beach for a relaxing day of sunbathing and swimming in the Atlantic Ocean at the renowned Cocoa Beach.
Full Time Professional with All the Credentials
Full-Time Professional fishing guides are a rare breed of people. There are many "part-time" anglers looking to make an extra buck or boat payment by taking unsuspecting customers out for a day of fishing. True professional fishing charter guides make it a daily part of their lives to keep up-to-date on not only the fishing, but the safety and comfort of their fishing customers. Lagooner Fishing Guides are Coast Guard Approved, hold Captain's Licenses and other documentation required to do business as required by National and State Laws. It's a Florida State requirement to have a fishing license and Florida offers a boat/guide license for professional charter captains. You must have an occupational license (Lagooner is an "S" Corporation) and maintain a commercial fishing license to take customers offshore for species like dolphin, snapper, grouper and mackerel. If a Charter Boat Captain does not have a fishing license to cover his customers, then customers must provide their own. Any decent fishing guide should have liability insurance encase someone gets hurt and it's mandatory to keep up-to-date on CPR and First Aid from the American Red Cross or other certified organization.
Modern Fishing and Boating Equipment
Lagooner has two boats provided by Action Craft High Performance Fishing Machines. Both are compliant and approved for operating in their respected locations inside of 100 miles of shore and with less than six customers. All tackle including rods and reels are modern St Croix Rods and Shimano or Penn Reels that are impeccably maintained.
Orlando's Top Professional Fishing Guide
Orlando Florida has the best inshore saltwater fishing in the state and being a professional fishing guide in this area has honed my fishing abilities to help anglers and customers become better at catching fish.

April - 2017 Fishing Report
April - 2017 Fishing Forecast
April of 2017 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.

Inshore Charter Fishing in the Banana River Lagoon near 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.
Had the best day fishing off Cocoa Beach with Capt. Richard while we were docked in Port Canaveral for the day from the Norwegian Gem. Capt. Gina was so helpful in planning our trip months ahead and even came right to the boat and picked us up when we pulled into Port! We caught some beautiful King Mackerel and had many laughs. I would recommend Lagooner to EVERYONE. If we ever get back down there, we'll definitely go again.
