Central Florida Fishing

Inshore & Offshore Saltwater Fishing Opportunities

Thursday March 22, 2018

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.

Spring is probably one of the most enjoyable and productive times of the year for big spawning sea trout in Central Florida. After all the cold snaps are over, trout move out towards the sandbars and shallow grass flats on the leeward sides of oyster bars and rises on the bottom. This time period can be a "fire fight" as the trout will pounce on anything thrown in their spawning territory and the fish are stacked up. Not only is it the best time to fish for big spawning sea trout in the Orlando area, it's also the best time in Florida with mild warm temperatures and crystal clear warmer water.

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.

My wife and I have been on several trips with Captain Richard and have always had a great time and have usually caught a lot of fish, and would have had a wonderful day on the water even if we would not have been so lucky. I would recommend Lagooner to anyone wanting a fun day out fishing.
