Orlando Sight Fishing Trips
Charter With A Professional Guide To Sight Fish The Saltwater Lagoons
Sunday June 24, 2018
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

June - 2018 Fishing Report
June - 2018 Fishing Forecast
June of 2018 is looking to be a hot summer with hot fishing off of East Central Florida near Cocoa Beach. Orlando visitors should anticipate the warm weather and great fishing that coastal and offshore fishing provides in the warm Atlantic Ocean this time of year. Last year in 2017 we saw many tarpon exceeding 100 pounds caught off the Brevard County beaches along with a good amount of sharks, king mackerel and really big Jack Crevelle that kept things interesting. Looking forward to this year's forecast on the Space Coast remember that the coastal waters along the Atlantic seaboard and Ocean will probably be the most productive fishing during the month of June and as we look in to August the ocean will look to be the most inviting destination for anglers in the heat of the Central Florida Summer.

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.
A very knowledgeable guide and knows the area waters well. We were on big reds and trout within minutes of the leaving the dock and ventured about the lagoon to catch different species. The scenery in the Lagoon is remarkable!
Richard’s boat was well equipped with good equipment, he was well prepared to adapt to the different types of fishing through out the day. My primary focus was sight fishing for big reds on fly - the flies that Capt. Richard provided were right on!
Booking the charter was a breeze, his wife Capt. Gina was very accommodating to work me in (thank you Capt. Gina).
Capt. Richard seemed to know who was hungry at the right times – and we had some impressive catches! Well done Capt. Richard, and thanks for a great day on the water!
