Banana River Lagoon Fishing
Monday August 21, 2017
Capt. Richard Bradley had a great day of fishing with father and son fishing team, (Brad and Josh Jones) on a beautiful February day on the Banana River! Early in the morning we watched tailing redfish on a clear flat and saw a big school of reds swim directly at the boat only to peel away within 15 feet or so. "It was breath taking to see large reds in 18 inches of water", explained Brad as Capt. Richard poled the boat within casting distance of the school.
Josh caught the Lion's share of the fish while dad watched proudly. At day's end the sum total was somewhere around nine very nice trout and two (2) keeper redfish. Although we saw alot more redfish and trout, they were extremely shy in the very shallow lagoon. Try very subtle lures (small weedless spoons or jerk baits). I like the red rippers.
The trout are on the flats again and sunning in the white sand areas. Reds are doing the same as the temperatures are rising. We used live bait for all the fish landed today.
JOSH: Gina found a pinfish in the wash today. mmmm.... seems that it was in the hood of my sweatshirt. Know anything aboutthis?

August - 2017 Fishing Report
August - 2017 Fishing Forecast
August is another hot month on the Banana River Lagoon for temperatures but not as good for fishing. Look to the ocean out of Port Canaveral to be more productive or try some fishing down at Sebastian are during the hottest summer months. Redfish can move into the deeper flat regions of the Banana River during the later part of August in preparation of the spawn in September, but these will be the larger redfish and not the slot size that many enjoy for a meal. Look for next month to be a better month for the Banana River and then into the early winter it will even get better. If you're really looking to fish on the Banana River set up a half day evening trip or an early morning pre-dawn trip for snook and reds.
