Charter With A Professional Guide To Sight Fish The Saltwater Lagoons

Tuesday October 17, 2017

Sight is one of our five senses but you won't hear a whisper about the best places to sight fish from local anglers as they keep their lips tight about their secret locations to anyone. East of Orlando, Florida lies the beautiful saltwater lagoons that are strung around Florida's coastline like a like a charm necklace. Each charm on Florida's necklace has names like The "Mosquito Lagoon" & "Indian River Lagoon". Central Florida's east coast has several charms that are gems for the fishing enthusiast. In less than one hundred miles of coastline in Brevard County, there are no less than three ins.hore saltwater bodies of water and two inlets to keep anglers busy.

The Mosquito Lagoon

World Famous for the combination of clear water and redfish populations, the Mosquito Lagoon boast great sight fishing for fly and spinning enthusiast. Generally speaking the further north towards New Smyrna Inlet the clearer the water, but if the conditions are good, the south end of the lagoon will host some great visibility too.

Indian River Lagoon

The extreme north end of the Indian River Lagoon near Scottsmore and Titusville near Turnbull Creek is a sightfishing paradise. Tailing schools of large breeding fish are often found feeding in the shallow grass flats.

Banana River Lagoon

Famous for it's No Motor Zone or NMZ the Banana River can have the best sight fishing on the east coast and possibly the entire continent. Large schools of redfish, massive gator trout, black drum and even snook can be seen in the Banana River Lagoon.

Sebastian Inlet

Hailed as one of the most productive snook fishing inlets, the inshore side of the inlet and it's Indian River areas can be a productive sightfishing area for the knowledgeable angler.

New Smyrna Inlet

While not known for sight fishing the inshore waterways around the inlet can produce great fishing for redfish, sharks and black drum. Look offshore for cobia and large schools of redfish.

Canaveral and the Atlantic Ocean

Sight fishing for ocean pelagics like cobia can be as good as it gets at various times of the year. Look to the warmer months for sightfishing cobia, redfish and other ocean going fish like Jacks and Tarpon.

Fishing Reports

October - 2017 Fishing Report

The summer is over and the autumn winds are starting to prevail as we head toward the holidays and winter. With water temperatures on the fall and water levels above average you can find good numbers of fish very close to the shoreline and against the mangroves. Mullet are in their peak run and will start to subside as we enter November, but bait, comfort and the end of the redfish spawn should keep anglers busy during the month of October. Lie mullet will trump any given bait during the fall on most days and if you're lucky enough to run into a school of big breeding redfish, it typically doesn't matter what you throw at them, just be ready for these fish that often exceed forty pounds.

Wrapping up the October report, we have been catching snook along the deeper shorelines with the seasonally high water, breeding redfish are coming to an end, but you have a chance to catch them and the fall mullet fun will keep the gamefish interesting into November.

Review / Trip Advisor

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.

Excellent day on the water with Captain Richard - We were fortunate to get a good day off shore, trolling for bigger fish. We caught Crevelle Jack, Bonito and King Mackerel. Richard was a blast to fish with and knew his stuff. He made our day lots of fun and productive. Would definitely go out with him again!
