Friday October 20, 2017

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.

Fishing Reports

October - 2017 Fishing Report

The summer is over and the autumn winds are starting to prevail as we head toward the holidays and winter. With water temperatures on the fall and water levels above average you can find good numbers of fish very close to the shoreline and against the mangroves. Mullet are in their peak run and will start to subside as we enter November, but bait, comfort and the end of the redfish spawn should keep anglers busy during the month of October. Lie mullet will trump any given bait during the fall on most days and if you're lucky enough to run into a school of big breeding redfish, it typically doesn't matter what you throw at them, just be ready for these fish that often exceed forty pounds.

Wrapping up the October report, we have been catching snook along the deeper shorelines with the seasonally high water, breeding redfish are coming to an end, but you have a chance to catch them and the fall mullet fun will keep the gamefish interesting into November.

Fishing Forecast

October - 2017 Fishing Forecast

The frost is on the pumpkin, but not in Central Florida's Banana River Lagoon during October. The Halloween month can be the first we really start feeling cooler temperatures and the fish seem to get frisky and are hungry during this fall month. Although we concentrate further south for snook during October, it's starting to really get good in the Banana River as bait from the fall mullet run are around and there's plenty of action for almost every species from snook to sea trout. Sea trout in the evenings can be fantastic or early in the morning when the sun is not fully out. Redfish and tarpon will be around the whole day for anglers to enjoy. Look for the Banana to get better and better during the coming weeks and months as winter makes itself known.
