Offshore Fishing Winter 2017

The fishing has been superb for big kingfish and a smattering of cobia over the last few weeks as the temperatures have been almost spring like.  We're afraid that the normal run of cobia may pass us by early as the coastal water temps have often exceeded 72° F and this signals cobia to move northward toward their summer ground near the Chesapeake Bay.
The real story has been the large schools of massive black drum, tarpon and other springtime critters moving along the beach as the comfortable temperatures are soaring and the fish are moving.  I don't know if this is going to last all February and into March, but it should be a hot spring in the offshore waters off Cocoa Beach, Florida.

The BIG Redfish are Here!

It's that time of year again, when the redfish get frisky and spawn. The large breeder redfish can be found in several locations on the Banana River between Merritt Island and Cocoa Beach. Look for large groups of fish adjacent to deeper water and shallow water grassflats.


Have fun looking for and catching these large fish, but make sure you return them to the water quickly so as not to harm future generations of redfish.

Where There's Food... There's Fish

Anglers often ask me how to find fish and what do I look for to locate fish and my answer more than often is "find food, find fish".  All animals (including fish) need food and the fall mullet run on Florida's east coast provides plenty of food for the predator fish like snook, redfish, sharks and jack crevelle.  Just look for the food, in this case the fingerling mullet are migrating down the coastline on their annual trek and the big game fish are shadowing the schools baitfish and you'll often see them crashing in the surfline off Cocoa Beach and Cape Canaveral.

Hurry up and call us before the mullet run subsides in the next few weeks. Our regulars just need to call Capt. Gina or new customers can go to our Cocoa Beach Fishing Guide website at Lagooner.com and contact us there.

Fishing Forecast

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.
