Florida Fishing Charters and Guides
Central Florida Guided Fishing Locations
Sunday December 17, 2017
A connection to East Central Florida's best fishing destinations, charter fishing captains and full-time expert fishing guides. Whether you're a novice angler or an avid fly fisherman, we hook-you-up with Coast Guard approved, licensed Florida charter captains and modern vessels with abilities to put you on fish and improve your angling skills.
East Central Florida offers world class fishing adventures in both saltwater and freshwater for the most demanding outdoorsman looking for quality fishing opportunities or perhaps an IGFA world record snook, redfish or sea trout. Brevard County fish populations are protected and healthy partly because of their proximity adjacent to the Merritt Island Wildlife refuge, which forms a secure and natural perimeter around Kennedy Space Center and Cocoa Beach fishing areas. Anglers have the opportunity to pursue popular species such as redfish, spotted sea trout, snook and tarpon or the less sought-after jack crevalle, black drum and ladyfish.
For the adventurous, Port Canaveral charter fishing offers near shore or offshore trolling, live baiting and sightfishing for shark, cobia, tripletail, spanish mackerel, dolphin and King Mackerel may be available (weather and water conditions permitting). If you choose the ocean, we will launch from Port Canaveral in the shadow of the two new Disney ships, Majestic and Wonder.
The Indian River and Banana River Lagoon are a fishing paradise sprawling across hundreds of square miles of clear shallow water presenting anglers with awesome opportunities to sight fish for their favorite species. Fishing destinations include the secluded and beautiful Mosquito Lagoon with one of our Mosquito Lagoon Fishing Guides, the mangrove shorelines of the world famous Cocoa Beach's Thousand Islands mimicking south Florida's everglade fishing or one of hundreds of productive spots that your guide will introduce you to from Daytona beach to Sebastian Inlet.
Florida Family Fishing Vacations
A Florida inshore fishing guide trip can be a nice accent to your Florida vacation plans. Late evening snook fishing with a Sebastian Inlet Fishing Guide or early morning tarpon fishing charters can be fun and exciting for any family member. A trip with a Florida flats fishing guide is the best fishing for your money any way you slice it.
Minutes from Orlando, area attractions include Disney World, Seaworld, Busch Gardens, Universal Studios, Hollywood Studios, Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Cocoa Beach with it’s world famous Ron Jon’s Surf Shop. Many visitors witness space shuttle or rocket launches while spending a day fishing near Disney or other area attractions.
Come on down to Florida and let a Central Florida fishing guide show you the hot angling action in Brevard County or Florida's Space Coast near Mosquito Lagoon, Cocoa Beach and Orlando Florida theme parks. Saltwater fishing doesn't get any better than in Central Florida and the Indian River Lagoon or Atlantic Ocean.

Lagooner Fishing Guides Review / Trip Advisor
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.
Amazing People and Amazing Day on the Water - Our day spent with Captain Richard on the Atlantic was one of the most memorable of our lives! This guy is entertaining and an expert fisherman! Captain Gina was so accommodating prior to our reservation, giving us local recommendations, and after our trip, ensuring that we had the best time and following up with us to see if we would visit agin!
We spent the first hour or so of our trip goofing around, storytelling and listening to "old man rock music" as Captain Richard looked for bait. Once he coasted his net and caught bait that was the size of the fish that we catch from the shore, we knew that we were in for a treat!
The weather was beautiful, water was calm and, in between joke telling and getting to know each other, we ended up catching 3 king mackerels (one was 45 lbs!), 2 amber jacks and 2 barracudas, all of which were very sizable! Captain Richard provided great guidance as we fought the fish (and won!), was very patient snd honest.
Highly highly recommend booking a fishing charter with Lagooner Fishing Guides! Not only will you return to land telling true fish stories of your time on the water (as evidenced in photos), you will also return with new friends!!
