Saltwater Fishing Charters by Lagooner Fishing Guides
Sight Fishing the Shallow Water Lagoons
Central Florida & Orlando's Best Fish Hunting Adventures
Saturday May 27, 2017
Unlike many fishing trips where you spend the day trolling or idling along and blindly casting or presenting your lures to gamefish, sightfishing mixes the art of hunting and fishing perfectly. On Florida's east coast there are hundreds of miles of shallow water lagoons teaming with preditor fish and waiting for the moment to pounce on their prey. Red drum are by far the most popular and sought out by anglers and they are perfectly suited for sightfishing. Whole industries have been built around sight-fishing for redfish with manufacturers building specialized skiffs that run shallow and quickly across the grass beds where redfish dwell.
Lagooner Fishing Guide, Captain Richard Bradley uses his 18 foot shallow draft boat or "Flats Boat" to pursue redfish in the lagoons around his native home east of Orlando in Cocoa Beach. An aft platform over the outboard creates a unique observation post for guides to gaze out and beyond the view of the anglers on the casting platform on the front of the vessel. Fishing Guides are often seen pushing or poling their clients across the vast beds of seagrass looking for an opportunity to make a cast at a gamefish.
Hunting visually for fish.

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.
