Saltwater Fishing Charters by Lagooner Fishing Guides
Highly Popular Catch For The Dinner Table
Sunday June 24, 2018
Most travelers coming to Florida might have heard of Pompano as the alluring sandy beaches along south Florida's East Coast. However, the Pompano we are ever so familiar with and speak of is the unfamiliar species that actually swims near shore to our coastline and in the saltwater lagoons. Just minutes away from Orlando and the busy theme parks, attractions and night life you can make your way out along the shoreline to hook into one of these unique fish. They are rather pretty with a greenish gray and silver color, most would say this fish is fit for a kings table as it is mild and rich tasting yet very light and lean. Chef's love the versatility of preparing this fish so when you visit Orlando and the Space Coast area you will have to dine at the Pompano Grill in Cocoa Beach to enjoy a fresh plate that is not only tasty but visually appealing as well.

Florida pompano are common in inshore and nearshore waters, especially along sandy beaches, along oyster banks, and over grassbeds. They are often in turbid water and may be found in water as deep as 130 feet.
These fish spawn offshore between March and September. Florida pampano feed on mollusks and crustaceans, especially sand fleas. Local movements are influenced by the tide, and seasonal movements are influenced by temperature.

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.
