The World Renowned Indian River Lagoon has two prominent boat ramps that Lagooner Fishing Guides launches at. Parrish Park is located on the north side across the IRL of Titusville under the shadow of the 407 bridge. The southern ramp is located at Kennedy Point Park as you enter Titusville on US-1 from the south. Both ramps are easy to find but require a little forethought before you start out.Kennedy Point Park

December - 2017 Fishing Report
December - 2017 Fishing Forecast
The month of Christmas welcomes in the winter months and ushers in some of the best fishing on the Banana River Lagoon. Colder temperatures will make fishing better as it concentrates the fish into winter holes where they find cooler stable waters to sit out the fronts in. After each cold front you'll find fish adjacent to the deeper holes on the flats where they'll be laid up sunning and feeding on what ever comes their way. Most of December is great fishing on the lagoon with the exception of the Christmas holidays when it get crowded as vacationers come home and have time off to go for a winter-time fish before going back north and back to work. Savvy anglers will fish before and after the Christmas Holidays.

Inshore and Offshore Charter Fishing near Orlando and 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.
A very knowledgeable guide and knows the area waters well. We were on big reds and trout within minutes of the leaving the dock and ventured about the lagoon to catch different species. The scenery in the Lagoon is remarkable!
Richard’s boat was well equipped with good equipment, he was well prepared to adapt to the different types of fishing through out the day. My primary focus was sight fishing for big reds on fly - the flies that Capt. Richard provided were right on!
Booking the charter was a breeze, his wife Capt. Gina was very accommodating to work me in (thank you Capt. Gina).
Capt. Richard seemed to know who was hungry at the right times – and we had some impressive catches! Well done Capt. Richard, and thanks for a great day on the water!
