Offshore Fishing Trips

Spend aTripping Awesome Day With Family and Friends

Wednesday January 24, 2018

What's more fun than a good "Road Trip"? When the road ends near Cocoa Beach and it's offshore fishing, you know... it's gonna be a good time. I always think of the movie with Chevy Chase going to Wally World when throngs of travelers transcend on our sub-tropical state for a trip to the deep blue sea at Sea World's Discovery Cove or Universal's Islands of Adventure. I know, I know, but after standing in lines for several days waiting for the next 40 second ride at your favorite attraction, most find that the journey turns into an eclectic mishap of fantasyland, adventureland and possibly a roller coaster ride that ties it's roots to the ocean like The Manta, Splash Mountain or possibly The Kraken.

I ask myself often... Why do we try and substitute the "REAL" adventure for a false canned adventure when there's plenty of tangible quality outdoor activities? Living so close to the Orlando area and it's theme parks, I see families tripping across the world to get to a new perceived adventure when only minutes away lies the cobalt blue ocean and shallow water lagoons with wildlife from bald eagles to manatees and even dolphin. It fascinates me to think we've come to the place in our culture that a substitute artificial adventure has become the norm for real activities.

If you're looking for the "Real Thing" in outdoor adventure, look to Lagooner Fishing Guides and Captain Richard's offshore fishing adventures. Call today and we'll help you understand what a good fishing adventure in-tales.

Fishing Reports

January - 2018 Fishing Report

The Banana River comes alive during the colder months of year and January is the peak season for deep hole trout, redfish and juvenile black drum. We've been fishing the deeper canals and slews with success during the cold fronts when the water is cold and also catching some great sized fish on the flats adjacent to these holes. Look for the Banana River to improve as the winter gets colder and the fish transition to their winter haunts in pursuit of cold, stable water. Look for mature fish to seek warmth on the shallow shorelines nearby.

Fishing Forecast

January - 2018 Fishing Forecast

Is it going to be an Indian Summer this January or possibly a deep freeze Polar Vortex? These are the questions that all fishing guides want to know. Depending on how this winter plays out with temperatures, winds and other conditions will dictate how our fishing will pan out in January. Unless the water is churned up by high winds, January will produce some of the cleanest and clearest water of the year in Central Florida as colder water kills of plankton life in the lagoons and mild northeast winds often push in clearer water in the ocean. Look for great inshore fishing in the Mosquito Lagoon and Northern end of the Indian River toward Titusville. If the winds and water are all frothed up it can be a crap shoot for fishing in almost every inshore locations and will shutdown all offshore fishing due to small craft warnings and safety warnings. However, between fronts, look for some of the best fishing of the year in January both inshore and offshore in Central Florida.

Review / Trip Advisor

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.

Great guide and lots of fun!!! - My wife and I have been fishing with Capt. Richard and Capt Gina for years. We have been out many times with them and always have a great time and catch fish. We love going to go to eat with them at a local place that will cook the fish we catch. They are super people and we try to get with them annually. Give them a try and you will be glad you did.
