Speed Down to Daytona Beach Florida for Some Exciting Fishing
Monday April 23, 2018
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.

April - 2018 Fishing Report
April - 2018 Fishing Forecast
April of 2018 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.

Money so well spent!! - I treated a couple of dear friends to a charter fishing trip with Lagooner. I have to say it was money so well spent! Not like any charter I had ever been on before. Richard paid personal attention to every detail. Making sure we had the absolute best time and moved us around to follow fish of every type. This allowed for some simple easy fishing along with some wild challenges. I can't think of what else would have made this trip a better experience. My guests had never been treated so well on a charter they said. Yes you can find cheaper but I would never, ever try to save a couple of dollars and not have this kind of experience and memories.!
