Saltwater Fishing Charters by Lagooner Fishing Guides
Mosquito Lagoon Shallow Water Guided Trips
Fishing The Flats For Redfish And Spotted Sea Trout
Friday June 22, 2018
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.

June - 2018 Fishing Report
June - 2018 Fishing Forecast
June of 2018 is looking to be a hot summer with hot fishing off of East Central Florida near Cocoa Beach. Orlando visitors should anticipate the warm weather and great fishing that coastal and offshore fishing provides in the warm Atlantic Ocean this time of year. Last year in 2017 we saw many tarpon exceeding 100 pounds caught off the Brevard County beaches along with a good amount of sharks, king mackerel and really big Jack Crevelle that kept things interesting. Looking forward to this year's forecast on the Space Coast remember that the coastal waters along the Atlantic seaboard and Ocean will probably be the most productive fishing during the month of June and as we look in to August the ocean will look to be the most inviting destination for anglers in the heat of the Central Florida Summer.

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.
Captain Richard was great company on the boat. He's a blast to hang out with and will glady joke around with everyone. When it came to the fishing it was a tough day to start but we were able to find a school of drummer fish. He was able to spot a school of fish from his boat which was pretty cool. We caught a good 20-25 lb black drumfish which made the whole trip worth it. For sure recommend captain Richard.
