Saltwater Fishing Charters by Lagooner Fishing Guides
Mosquito Lagoon Shallow Water Guided Trips
Fishing The Flats For Redfish And Spotted Sea Trout
Friday April 28, 2017
While "shallow water fishing" may not be unique in the angling world it's genually unique to the Mosquito Lagoon as it's average depth is less than five feet, with most fishing action taking place in less than a meter of water. Gamefish are often seen feeding and foraging for shrimp and crabs in the shallow grass beds along sandbars and shorelines where lightweight specialized fishing vessels equipped with jackplates and and hulls designed for the specific purpose of running in skinny water that is often less than twelve inches deep.
Mosquito Lagoon Guides have boats with poling platforms that put them above the glare of the sun, looking down at the clear water with polarized sunglasses. Today's modern shallow water skiffs are often made of carbon kevlar for lighter profiles and shallower running. It's amazing what a proper boat can do for fishing the Mosquito Lagoon with an experienced guide.
Both of Lagooner Fishing Guides skiffs are made to run in skinny waters but the foundation of shallow water fishing is done with a proper "Flats Boat" like our Action Craft 1820. While our Bay Boat will operate in less than two feet of water, the Flats Boat will pole along easily in less than a foot while your guide scours the vast saltwater grassflats for gamefish targets.

April - 2017 Fishing Report
April - 2017 Fishing Forecast
April of 2017 should be a great spring for fishing in both inshore and offshore coastal waters of Central Florida. Look to the Mosquito Lagoon and Banana Rivers to produce redfish and sea trout consistently and then look toward the ocean and depending on the water temps, clear skies and wind the cobia will be on their way north and migrating past Canaveral towards their northern grounds on the mid-Atlantic seaboard. Central Florida's weather during the spring is usually no less than spectacular as the college spring breakers are winding up the end of their vacation and heading back to campus to finish up before summer break. Daytona Beach host several spring events from NASCAR Races, Bike Week and Spring Break activities while Cocoa Beach and it's Space Coast offer a much less crowded alternative for vacationers to seek a more secluded and restful Holiday. The temperatures are rising and the fishing should be heating up too in East Central Florida's Cocoa Beach.

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.
Had the best day fishing off Cocoa Beach with Capt. Richard while we were docked in Port Canaveral for the day from the Norwegian Gem. Capt. Gina was so helpful in planning our trip months ahead and even came right to the boat and picked us up when we pulled into Port! We caught some beautiful King Mackerel and had many laughs. I would recommend Lagooner to EVERYONE. If we ever get back down there, we'll definitely go again.
