Saltwater Fishing Charters by Lagooner Fishing Guides
Captain Gina Bradley
Booking You With The Best Fishing Trips on Florida's East Coast
Thursday May 25, 2017
Captain Gina is qualified in every aspect to take people on fishing charters, but this mother of two and wife of renowned charter Captain Richard Bradley, chooses to take friends and family on her fishing outings only.
"Cindi Lauper summed it up in a song... Girls just want to have fun and that's me when I'm out fishing with friends."
Gina is a Coast Guard Merchant Marine Captain and lives in Cocoa Beach on Florida's Space Coast. Living near Daytona Beach and Orlando, Gina loves to fish, run and spend time with her family in the outdoors. Her favorite fish to catch is tarpon in the hot summer sun off Cape Canaveral and Brevard County, but inshore fishing in a canoe for tailing redfish in the Banana River's NMZ is a close second.
When Gina's not fishing, she's the booking agent for Lagooner Fishing Guides and helps several of her charter fishing captain friends with referrals. "The best part of helping my fishing charter buddies is spending an occassional day on the boat with them." Explains Gina. "Taking a day of fishing with friends! There's nothing like it and I can't get enough of it!"
More and more women are getting into fishing and it's not surprising to see a few that like to actually take the initiative and go out on their own or take friends with them. Gina is one of those unique anglers that loves the water and the outdoors and finds fun introducing her friends to a great day in the Florida sunshine.
Central Florida has so many unique opportunities for a woman that likes to fish and have fun. Mosquito Lagoon, Sebastian Inlet, the Indian River Lagoon and Banana River are just a few of the inshore places for a girl to get lost in a remote inshore waterway. Of course taking a day of nearshore and offshore fishing in the Atlantic Ocean is great too. Whether it's offshore fishing for cobia and king mackerel, inshore fishing for redfish and sea trout or nearshore for monster snook and tarpon you'll find Captain Gina ready and willing to take on the great outdoors and pull in another big one.
Taking a day with a friend on Florida's east coast fishing is one of the best things to do while visiting Florida's Space Coast near Orlando. Wading and swimming with one of my girlfriends on a sandbar island or racing down the waterway at fifty miles per hour with the wind blowing in my hair while holding on tight. It's always a good time when the sun's shining and the fish are biting.
Even when they don't bite it's fun to watch the wildlife and relax with your toes in the sand or soaking up sun on the boat deck. Speaking of of wildlife or should I say "night life", Cocoa Beach offers some great night time fun for anglers after the sun goes down too. You'll find my friends and I down on the docks behind Grills Restaurant & Bar on the waterfront or dancing on the deck to live music at their tiki bar. It's just another way for girls to have fun and blow off steam after a hard day's work or long day on the water.
If you visit Florida, please look me up and I'll set you up with a great fishing trip on my local waterways on Florida's Central East Coastline and a fantastic day with one of my Captains.

May - 2017 Fishing Report
May - 2017 Fishing Forecast
May is one of the last month's of good fishing in the Banana River Lagoon until the summer months are over and the temperatures start to fall again in late September and October. May is awesome backwater snook time for Banana River anglers. Look for the early morning bite to produce great numbers of these hard hitting game fish. Fly fisherman only need to bring white mangrove flies in an assortment of sizes, but most snook will be in the single digit size so don't go past a 10 weight. Redfish will be plentiful and healthy sized in many areas of the Banana River and the sea trout will be staging around bait along sandbars and islands. Look for sea trout to slow down late in the month and as the summer temps rise the sea trout fishing will all but disappear excepting the smaller ones in the deeper water. Sebastian and the Mosquito Lagoon will be better sea trout areas in late May and into the summer.

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.
Captain Richard worked hard to put fish in the boat. We were able to bring in a few big Reds and some trout, and a couple keepers to take home for dinner. It's always the hope to be able to catch lots of fish, but fishing is fishing and there are no guarantees; the time of the year we travel to Florida also has an impact on our fshing success. This last trip out with Captain Richard my wife came along and thorougly enjoyed the experience and catching the big Reds. She is looking forward to our next trip to Florida and another fishing trip with Captain Richard.
