Central Florida Fishing
Inshore & Offshore Saltwater Fishing Opportunities
Wednesday August 24, 2016
There's no doubt that east central Florida is one of the country's best fishing destinations for the serious and not-so-serious anglers. Offering the best in both inshore and offshore fishing in Florida anglers can pursue hard fighting and reel sizzling big game fish like king mackerel and cobia or go to world famous inshore waters for a day of sightfishing on the Indian River Lagoon or even the famous Mosquito Lagoon.
The best season for a deep sea fishing excursion varies for each species, but with our experience, it seems that the calm summer days offer the opportunities for anglers to enjoy a day of live baiting, trolling or casting to many oceanic species. You'll find that King Mackerel are present almost all summer long and cobia make their appearance on a regular basis. It's not uncommon to have tarpon and shark near the beaches or dorado attacking far offshore.
Central Florida Offers Saltwater Angling Opportunities
Offshore of Cocoa Beach and Port Canaveral's beaches are countless reefs, rocks, ridges and wrecks for the fishing enthusiast to explore. Hiring an experienced and knowledgeable local fishing guide offers the best opportunity for anglers to hookup with many of the local species of saltwater fish like the powerful Jack Crevelle or aerobatic tarpon. Venturing further offshore offers anglers deeper water species like Snapper, Grouper, Sailfish and Dolphin. Simply ask your Charter Fishing Captain what's biting and follow his lead to the best bite in Central Florida's offshore waters.
Orlando Florida is known for it's hot weather during the summer and the fishing can be extremely "HOT" too! Look for trout around schools of bait in the shallow parts of the lagoon and along the edges of drop offs. Typically the better trout bites are very early in the morning or just before and after the sun goes down because the water is at an uncomfortable temperature. So if you're looking for summer trout fishing in the Orlando are the rule of thumb is the early bird gets the worm.

Lagooner Fishing Guides Review / Trip Advisor
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.
Excellent people and experience! - My husband and I had never tried anything like this before so we were a bit nervous about being sea sick. Captain Richard was so nice and laid back and gave us tips and tricks to try and fight it off. My husband unfortunately was very sick even before we started to get the lines out. Captain Richard took control and told him what to do and even where to stand in the boat to make it better. Unfortunately after captain Richard tried all his tricks my husband was still pretty sick so we had to call it a day an hour early.
The day was definitely not a loss though. Even though we didn't get to catch any fish I still got to see tons of wildlife! We saw everything from dozens of turtles to Dolphins, Rays, and even an 8 ft hammerhead shark! Captain Richard is a pro and definitely knows what he's doing and talking about. I would recommend this trip for sure!
