Orlando Saltwater Fishing

Inshore and Offshore Fishing in Central Florida

Tuesday April 24, 2018

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.

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.

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.

Captain Richard was great company on the boat. He's a blast to hang out with and will glady joke around with everyone. When it came to the fishing it was a tough day to start but we were able to find a school of drummer fish. He was able to spot a school of fish from his boat which was pretty cool. We caught a good 20-25 lb black drumfish which made the whole trip worth it. For sure recommend captain Richard.
