Florida Saltwater Fishing License Information and Cost

Lagooner Fishing Guide Customers Do Not have to purchase a Florida Saltwater License when Onboard our Vessels

Saturday May 26, 2018

Lagooner Fishing Guides post the Saltwater Fishing License Information as a courtesy for our anglers and for general information purposes. The regulation and license information change on a regular basis and should be checked against the Florida Wildlife Commission's website for accuracy.

Although you will not need this license if you are fishing with a Lagooner fishing guide, we provide you with the information to acquire one incase you get the sudden urge to go fishing on your own accord.

*If you have a resident recreational saltwater fishing license, you do not need a shoreline fishing license, because the resident recreational saltwater fishing license covers fishing from the shore, a dock, a jetty or a boat.

Fishing Forecast

May - 2018 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.
