Action Craft 1820
Tournament Edition Flatsmaster
Saltwater Inshore Machine for Shallow Water and Bay Fishing
Saturday January 21, 2017
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.

January - 2017 Fishing Report
The Banana River comes alive during the colder months of year and January is the peak season for deep hole trout, redfish and juvenile black drum. We've been fishing the deeper canals and slews with success during the cold fronts when the water is cold and also catching some great sized fish on the flats adjacent to these holes. Look for the Banana River to improve as the winter gets colder and the fish transition to their winter haunts in pursuit of cold, stable water. Look for mature fish to seek warmth on the shallow shorelines nearby.
January - 2017 Fishing Forecast
January is a great time of year on the Banana River Lagoon as the winter has set in and the spotted sea trout a redfish are in their colder water patterns. You'll find fish in and around deeper water canals where they can sink into the stable cold water during the coldest fronts and then slip out onto the shallow flats for warmth and feeding between fronts. Typically the better fishing can be in the Thousand Island area and northward into the No Motor Zone during January. January can be one of the calmest times of the year as the winter doldrums can have crisp cold temperatures in the morning and nice balmy days by afternoon. January is why we live in Florida...

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.
Had the best day fishing off Cocoa Beach with Capt. Richard while we were docked in Port Canaveral for the day from the Norwegian Gem. Capt. Gina was so helpful in planning our trip months ahead and even came right to the boat and picked us up when we pulled into Port! We caught some beautiful King Mackerel and had many laughs. I would recommend Lagooner to EVERYONE. If we ever get back down there, we'll definitely go again.
