Banana River Lagoon Fishing
Thursday June 29, 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?

June - 2017 Fishing Forecast
Forecasting the Banana River in the month of June is challenging as the water temperatures rise the bite tends to go down so that's why you'll find many anglers pursuing other places like Port Canaveral or Sebastian Inlet area where there's tidal flow and water exchange. The Banana is a unique estuary because of it's distance from any open ocean inlets and bays. Because of this it's important to realize that the temps can often get into the mid 80's and higher causing the fish to be less receptive to feeding and more likely to seek cooler places under docks or simply migrate into more comfortable waters.

Excellent Christmas Fishing Trip - My son and I had a wonderful fishing trip with Captain Richard. He was knowledgeable, friendly and willing to work hard to insure we caught fish and had a wonderful experience. Captain Gina was first rate in setting up our trip, providing great information and directions.
