Action Craft 1820
Tournament Edition Flatsmaster

Saltwater Inshore Machine for Shallow Water and Bay Fishing

Wednesday October 26, 2016

With all the qualities Action Craft is famous for, like a high performance modified deep "V" hull design that eats up rough, choppy bay waters, the mid size 1820 is amazingly dry riding. Built with state-of-the-art construction techniques and Action Craft™'s Pocket Drive®, the 1820 can easily pole or run in shallow water.

The 1820 appeals to anglers who are looking for a full-featured, high quality, shallow draft coastal fishing boat with all the latest innovations and styling. Action Craft designs boats with the whole family in mind, making sure that there is room for the family and everything needed for a fun day on the water. Action Craft's improved self-draining cockpit, wider gunwales, and modified diamond nonslip finish are just a few of the features you will enjoy on your new FlatsMaster.

THE H.O. SERIES. BLURRING THE LINE BETWEEN BOATING AND AVIATION. Like pushing limits? Then take a closer look at our High Output Series. Because they push limits about as far as they can go - and come with everything it takes to handle it.

Like a high-performing SLE (Straight Leading Edge) gear case with nose-cone pick-ups that significantly increases water flow to the engine and provides increased cooling ability and capacity. High-quality gears with super pure, extra-tough metallurgy. And stiffer engine mounts for superior handling and control at high speeds. If youre looking for that extra bit of oomph, this is it. No matter the application, the H.O. series gives you the maximum performance you're looking for.

Whether I'm racing across the Indian River Lagoon or running the beaches along Florida's Space Coast, I know that I'm getting there safe and dry with my Flatsmaster 1820. One of Action Craft's most proven hulls and deck layouts, the 1820 has plenty of live well and bait well storage for the inshore angler. Although the boat is rated for a 150 hp, I opted for Evinrude's 115 High Output that's closer to a 130 hp output and I'm totally satisfied with it's performance. Wanting a lighter engine with plenty of get-up-and-go was my goal and Evinrude provided the equipment to do the job.

Captain Gina loves to fish with her 1820, but she's just as content to lay out on the deck and enjoy the Florida sunshine. The Action Craft is a good all-around pleasure boat as well as a high performance fishing vessel.

Fishing Reports

October - 2016 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 - 2016 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.

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.
