Speed Down to Daytona Beach Florida for Some Exciting Fishing
Saturday June 24, 2017
Daytona Beach offers lots of sunshine and year around fishing fun for visiting anglers of all kinds. We have redfish, bluefish, brownfish and "more fish" than most fishing destinations in the United States. Our variety of fishing in the Daytona Beach offers anglers an opportunity to sightfish for tailing redfish or throw topwater lures to feisty spotted sea trout. We even have alternatives for the fly fishing enthusiast in the shallow water lagoons and offshore waters.
Daytona is known for it's speedway and racing, but it's also known for great outdoors and fishing. If you're vacationing in the Daytona area and want a different perspective, try climbing on the boat for a a relaxing morning of refreshing Florida air and looking at the wildlife while pulling in a few red fish and other varieties of gamefish. It's fun exciting and is an alternative to Daytona's other attractions. So whether you're coming down for the Richard Petty Driving Experience, playing Putt Putt Golf at the Congo River Adventure Golf or just beach combing and sightseeing the Boardwalk and Amusement Area or taking a tour of the Ponce De Leon Lighthouse and Museum, it's always fun to take a break and go fishing for a morning or afternoon on the beautiful lagoons on Florida's east coast.
Other Daytona activities and scheduled events include the Daytona 500 in February and the Daytona 400 in July (formally known as the Firecracker 400 now the Coke Zero 400). Every March Daytona host bike week and the Daytona 200 for the motorcycle enthusiast and each year a large number of those Daytona visitors spend a day or two on the water fishing for both inshore and offshore game fish.
Whether you are in Daytona to go fishing for a redfish dinner, beach combing on a secluded beach or simply looking for a time away from home and enjoying the Florida Sunshine and nightlife, you're sure to have a good time vacationing in one of Central Florida's best destinations.
Spending quality time with my family is the most important thing for a parent or spouse to do. Daytona offers the opportunity for families to bond around activities from watching an exciting race to enjoying the great outdoors!
I'm Captain Richard Bradley and I've grown up close to the Daytona area my entire life. Daytona and it's sprawling coastline includes Ponce Inlet to the south and isolated beaches the further north, and south you go. The adventurous often take a fishing trip to the Indian River Lagoon or the Mosquito Lagoon and the secluded mangrove shorelines looking for sports fish like red fish and spotted sea trout. It doesn't really matter whether you're an expert or enthusiast angler, I've shown hundreds of anglers over the years our great outdoors and the fishing it offers.
Join me for a day of fishing, boating and watching the wildlife and Florida scenery next time you visit the Daytona Beach area.
See You Soon,
Captain Richard Bradley

Known as a fish that will not quit, redfish can be absolute brutes. And as such, they have become one of the most sought after fish in the shallows of Florida. Since their protection in the mid 1980's redfish numbers have proliferated and are especially abundant and large on the east central Florida coastline. Redfish have a coppery bronze color with a tinge of red, color will vary depending on water clarity. Normally redfish have one spot on the base of their tails but often there are several or many spots. Take a look at these spots caught by a lagooner fisherman. [LOOK]
East Central Florida boast some of the best inshore and estuary fishing for redfish in the world. Our redfish are renown for both quantity and quality. They are found in the lagoon systems all around the coast of Florida and some are even found offshore. This species is often found feeding in less than one foot of water while foraging for crustaceans, fish and small mollusk. Often they are in such shallow water that you can see their tales and backs protruding from the water, hence the term "tailing redfish".
Best Redfish Locations
Sightfishing Mecca from Oakhill to Playlinda Beach. World famous fishing waters in the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge in Northern Brevard County. Mosquito Lagoon can have crystal clear water allowing flyfisherman and light-tackle fisherman great opportunities to sight fish for tailing redfish and other species.
Northern Indian River Lagoon
Banana Creek, Titusville, Carbide Flats, Haulover Canal, Dummit Cove, Scottsmore are only some of the known redfish haunts in this area.
The Banana River has a NMZ or No Motorized Zone in the very north adjacent to Canaveral Airforce Base and NASA property. This are can be extremely productive for big schooling redfish as they are not subjected to motor boats and fishing pressure.
Not less than 18" or more than 27" and only 1 fish per harvester per day.

June - 2017 Fishing Report
June - 2017 Fishing Forecast
June of 2017 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 2016 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.

Lagooner Fishing Guides Review / Trip Advisor
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.
Excellent people and experience! - My husband and I had never tried anything like this before so we were a bit nervous about being sea sick. Captain Richard was so nice and laid back and gave us tips and tricks to try and fight it off. My husband unfortunately was very sick even before we started to get the lines out. Captain Richard took control and told him what to do and even where to stand in the boat to make it better. Unfortunately after captain Richard tried all his tricks my husband was still pretty sick so we had to call it a day an hour early.
The day was definitely not a loss though. Even though we didn't get to catch any fish I still got to see tons of wildlife! We saw everything from dozens of turtles to Dolphins, Rays, and even an 8 ft hammerhead shark! Captain Richard is a pro and definitely knows what he's doing and talking about. I would recommend this trip for sure!
