Action Craft 1820
Tournament Edition Flatsmaster
Saltwater Inshore Machine for Shallow Water and Bay Fishing
Sunday May 01, 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 youÕre 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.

May - 2016 Fishing Report
May - 2016 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.
