Extraordinary Female Fishing Guide Captain Gina Bradley
Tuesday January 23, 2018
Captain Gina is qualified in every aspect to take people on fishing charters, but this mother of two and wife of renowned charter Captain Richard Bradley, chooses to take friends and family on her fishing outings only.
Gina is a Coast Guard Merchant Marine Captain and lives in Cocoa Beach on Florida's Space Coast. Living near Daytona Beach and Orlando, Gina loves to fish, run and spend time with her family in the outdoors. Her favorite fish to catch is tarpon in the hot summer sun off Cape Canaveral and Brevard County, but inshore fishing in a canoe for tailing redfish in the Banana River's NMZ is a close second according to her.
When Gina's not fishing, she's the booking agent for Lagooner Fishing Guides and helps several of her charter fishing Captain friends with referrals. "The best part of helping my fishing Captain buddies is going fishing with them." Explains Gina. "Taking a day of fishing with friends! There's nothing like it and I can't get enough of it!"
More and more women are getting into fishing and it's not surprising to see a few that like to actually take the initiative and go out on their own or take friends with them. Gina is one of those unique anglers that loves the water and the outdoors and finds fun introducing her friends to a great day in the Florida sunshine.
Central Florida has so many unique opportunities for a woman that likes to fish and have fun. Mosquito Lagoon, Sebastian Inlet, the Indian River Lagoon and Banana River are just a few of the inshore places for a girl to get lost in a remote inshore waterway. Of course taking a day of nearshore and offshore fishing in the Atlantic Ocean is great too. Whether it's offshore fishing for cobia and king mackerel, inshore fishing for redfish and sea trout or nearshore for monster snook and tarpon you'll find Captain Gina ready and willing take on the great outdoors and pull in another big one.
"Cindi Lauper summed it up in a song... Girls just want to have fun and that's me when I'm out fishing with friends."
Hello Angling Amigos,
Taking a day with a friend on Florida's east coast fishing is one of the best things to do while visiting Florida's Space Coast near Orlando. Wading and swimming with one of my girlfriends on a sandbar island or racing down the waterway at fifty miles per hour with the wind blowing in my hair while holding on tight. It's always a good time when the sun's shining and the fish are biting.
Even when they don't bite it's fun to watch the wildlife and relax with your toes in the sand or soaking up sun on the boat deck. Speaking of of wildlife or should I say "night life", Cocoa Beach offers some great night time fun for anglers after the sun goes down too. You'll find my friends and I down on the docks behind Grills Restaurant & Bar on the waterfront or dancing on the deck to live music at their tiki bar. It's just another way for girls to have fun and blow off steam after a hard day's work or long day on the water.
If you visit Florida, please look me up and I'll set you up with a great fishing trip on my local waterways on Florida's Central East Coastline and a fantastic day with one of my Captains.

January - 2018 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 - 2018 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...

Amazing start to an amazing vacation! - Port Canaveral was our first stop on a 7 day Norwegian cruise out of New York City... When I didn't find any fishing excursions listed through NCL, I did a Google search and emailed a few different charter outfits. Capt. Gina was quick to respond and super to deal with. When she came right to the ship to pick us up for our trip she greeted us with a warm hug like we were lifelong friends. Capt Richard kept us on fish the entire time. We had many laughs and great conversation. I really enjoyed hearing him speak about his family. Caught some beautiful King Mackerel and a few other fish, WHAT A DAY! I would recommend Lagooner to anyone!
