Orlando Saltwater Fishing
Inshore and Offshore Fishing in Central Florida
Monday May 29, 2017
Orlando's best saltwater fishing is minutes away in the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean basin on Florida's coastline. Whether you want a day of deep sea fishing or inshore shallow water lagoon fishing, Orlando has it all for you.
After visiting the theme parks, you might consider taking a day of fishing on the nearshore and offshore waters east of Orlando. A family vacation to the saltwater lagoons and beaches on Florida's east coast can be a nice way to unwind after waiting in long lines in the hot Florida sunshine.
Saltwater fishing is one of Florida's most popular and enjoyable activities. During the summer months there's mild hot weather and calm winds that allows anglers to conquer the ocean and look for big game peligic and benthic fish like cobia, sailfish, bonito, baraccuda, snapper, grouper and many other fun hard pulling species. Winter and cooler months will produce cold front patterns that make the fishing perfect on the inshore lagoons and bays. Inshore fish include redfish, sea trout, tarpon and snook in the shallow waters from mear inches to several feet deep. Our redfish can push the scales over 50 pounds and the prime season for big breeding redfish are during our late summer and early fall as they breed in the Banana, Indian and Mosquito Lagoons.
Fishing Inshore Saltwater
The photo shows two boats that are built for two specific uses... One is a flats boat or shallow water skiff made for moving anglers quickly across the skinny water lagoons and into the locations where redfish, sea trout and other inshore fish live and feed. The other boat is made for coastal fishing and can be used to fish on calmer days in the ocean for different game and opportunities that lie off our coastline in the ocean. Inshore fishing is a great way to spend a day with a friend or by yourself when your visiting the Orlando for business or pleasure. Captain Richard often finds himself fishing with a businessman that has an additional day for R&R. Many days are spent on the water with husbands & wives that are taking a weekend to do something different and more often there's a couple of buddies that just want to go out with Captain Richard and explore the lagoons in search of giant redfish or tarpon and sea trout. Whatever your situation is, an inshore trip when you're visiting Orlando is always a good time!
Offshore Saltwater Fishing
A faster paced fishing trip and one that requires some arm excersize is offshore or deep sea fishing off Orlando's east coast area near Cocoa Beach or Port Canaveral. Typically a summer time fishery, the ocean is calm and flat during the months from June thru September and you'll find Lagooner Fishing Guides speeding along the coastline looking for cobia, kingfish and possibly red snapper and grouper. Families love ocean fishing explains Captain Richard, I take small groups of people out all summer long and love to watch kids and their parents play tug-a-war with big ocean fish. It's always fun and there's usually a pretty fast paced fishery here in Orlando.

May - 2017 Fishing Report
May - 2017 Fishing Forecast
May in Central Florida is the beginning of great things for people looking toward an ocean fishing trip looking for fast action. King Mackerel, Cobia and even a few tarpon start to make a showing as May develops into a more summer like pattern. Inshore the fishing can be productive for early morning and evening anglers as the sun warms the gin clear waters of the Mosquito Lagoon and the Banana Rivers. Both Redfish and Spotted Sea Trout will be a popular gamefish that even the youngest anglers will appreciate and enjoy. Bring plenty of sunscreen, some polarized sunglasses and broadbill hat as the Florida sunshine will penetrate the most protected boating endeavors. May is the beginning of the summer in Florida as far as the temperatures are concerned, but there's often an afternoon shower, so be prepared to fish early and get off the water before the afternoon storms roll in. So remember, inshore fishing and offshore fishing are an equal opportunity in May in Central Florida.

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.
