Florida Fishing Trips

Saltwater Charter Fishing the Sunshine State

Saturday October 21, 2017

Travelers often ask me "Why a fishing trip when I come to Florida?" Besides our beautiful beaches, ocean wildlife and sunshine, Florida has some awesome enjoyment and relief from the theme parks and tourist attractions that it's known for. When we are children, we look forward to our parents taking us on a summer vacation to some unknown pleasures where imaginary characters take life in an artificial environment that leaves much to the imagination. As we grow older, the curiosity and imagery of stuffed animals coming to life starts to give way to reality and that's when we often look toward the outdoors to fulfill our next ambitions. Life in the sea where sea turtles lounge on the surface and manatees play in the lagoons is where all these stories started anyways. Who would have thought that the original voyagers of Columbus would have mistaken a manatee or dugong as a mermaid, or whales conjuring up thoughts of sea monsters? Taking a fishing trip to Florida gives you the opportunity to imagine for yourself how you want to interpret your day while relaxing on the sub-tropical waterways where Ponce DeLeon and Pirates once explored.

As the years go by, one things for sure... our outdoors are shrinking and giving way to concrete malls and parking lots at an extraordinary rate. The popularity of nature tours, kayaking, hunting and fishing is growing each year as the habitat rapidly gives way to development. Fishing is one of the best ways to experience the outdoors and enjoy some companionship along the way with a friend or fishing guide.

What's Fishing About...?

One of the false pretenses of going charter fishing is that you need to know how. A good charter fishing captain will be astute enough to recognize your skill level, if any and attempt to meet or exceed your expectations. Fishing is supposed to be enjoyable and whether the fish are biting or not, the experience is about having fun trying. Catching fish is an added bonus and when it happens, it's a celebration that can be recorded on the camera or brought home to the dinner table. Most experienced anglers have had bad days of catching, but very rarely does anyone have bad days of fishing. It's difficult to have a bad day of fishing when there's so much to see and do while you're out on the water.

Hello Florida Visitors and Fishing Enthusiast,
Orlando Fishing GuideTaking a day with me in the warm Florida sunshine to go fishing can be an extraordinary exclamation point to any vacation. Over the past 20 years I've taken experience anglers, husbands and wifes, parents and children and every imaginable combination of passengers on my boats and they all say the same thing. "What a great way to spend a day!"

As a father of two daughters and being raised in central Florida, I remember my dad taking me out for a day in the ocean looking for that dinner table fish to bring home. My kids are reliving the same experiences with their dad and have embraced the outdoors while living adjacent to the most popular theme parks and shopping in the world. There's nothing more exciting to me than to get my family or friends out in the boat relaxing and pulling on a few fish. The conversations are priceless and the good times are memories that will not be forgotten. Why go fishing? To refresh, renew and enjoy a day on the water by yourself or with a loved... and who knows? You might make a friend with a little mermaid too ;-)

Fishing Reports

October - 2017 Fishing Report

The summer is over and the autumn winds are starting to prevail as we head toward the holidays and winter. With water temperatures on the fall and water levels above average you can find good numbers of fish very close to the shoreline and against the mangroves. Mullet are in their peak run and will start to subside as we enter November, but bait, comfort and the end of the redfish spawn should keep anglers busy during the month of October. Lie mullet will trump any given bait during the fall on most days and if you're lucky enough to run into a school of big breeding redfish, it typically doesn't matter what you throw at them, just be ready for these fish that often exceed forty pounds.

Wrapping up the October report, we have been catching snook along the deeper shorelines with the seasonally high water, breeding redfish are coming to an end, but you have a chance to catch them and the fall mullet fun will keep the gamefish interesting into November.

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.

This was the best, we would go again in a second. He treated my 13 year old like a young man. Caught very nice fish in a beautiful area. Felt safe at all times. Cpt. Richard made quite the impression on my son. We will be going again, and I would recommend this trip to anyone.
