Banana River Lagoon Fishing

Valentines Slam

Saturday March 24, 2018

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?

Fishing Forecast

March - 2018 Fishing Forecast

The windy month of March on the Banana River can still produce alot of large spotted sea trout and some nicer sized reds than the previous two months. Redfish will start moving around in march in preparation for the upcoming spring months and larger seatrout will be thinking about the spawn as the water temperature rise. Look for a showing of snook to possibly show up in late March and tarpon to start moving into the backwaters on some days. Tarpon will more than likely be present, but will be fickle to eat unless the temperatures are consistant in March.

NOTE: During the month of March you'll want to ask your Captain about cobia fishing as the migration of cobia usually start in March depending on the water temperatures in the ocean. March is a very productive month for almost all fishing.
