Offshore Sight Fishing
A Fantastic Way to Find and Catch Fish
Monday May 29, 2017
Sightfishing can be the single most exciting way to pursue and catch offshore fish for an angler. It's challenging and rewarding to actually see the fish before you make the cast to it and many anglers can't handle the additional pressure when making a presentation to a swimming fish.
Cobia are by far the most sought out for offshore ocean fishing on Florida's east coast. Not only because they offer a great target and challenge, but because of their taste to the fisherman's pallet. Take a look at the cobia video below with Captain Richard Bradley & Gina Bradley on board the Obsession with Captain Brent Hancock a few years back. You'll get charged up to go sightfishing offshore of Port Canaveral when you watch this!
Best times to book and offshore sightfishing charter is the spring for cobia and summer for some of the other popular offshore species like tarpon, kingfish and dorado. While sightfishing is a specialty fishing adventure, it's not an everyday occurrence and should be looked at as an opportunity for the angler if the occasion arises. Ask your Captain about sightfishing opportunities when you visit Florida's Space Coast near Port Canaveral and the Orlando area.

May - 2017 Fishing Report
May - 2017 Fishing Forecast
May in Central Florida is the beginning of great things for people looking toward an ocean fishing trip looking for fast action. King Mackerel, Cobia and even a few tarpon start to make a showing as May develops into a more summer like pattern. Inshore the fishing can be productive for early morning and evening anglers as the sun warms the gin clear waters of the Mosquito Lagoon and the Banana Rivers. Both Redfish and Spotted Sea Trout will be a popular gamefish that even the youngest anglers will appreciate and enjoy. Bring plenty of sunscreen, some polarized sunglasses and broadbill hat as the Florida sunshine will penetrate the most protected boating endeavors. May is the beginning of the summer in Florida as far as the temperatures are concerned, but there's often an afternoon shower, so be prepared to fish early and get off the water before the afternoon storms roll in. So remember, inshore fishing and offshore fishing are an equal opportunity in May in Central Florida.

Having been fishing a number of times over the years with Captain Richard I can highly recommend Lagooner Charters. We have always had a great time and he puts you on the fish.
