"Truly one of the greatest mornings I've ever had on the water, porpoise at the side of the boat, a magnificent sunrise, and big fighting fish I still dream about!! I would recommend a trip with Capt. Richard to anyone who loves to fish, a great guy and a true professional!!", explains Brad
<-- Brad Knope displays an almost 30 pound jack crevalle before releasing.
One of the blessing of being a fishing guide is watching people enjoy themselves while fishing. Brad and Kyle never stopped smiling from the time they got in the boat till they left the water. I hope this short fishing trip will get ya'll by till the next time.

Known as a fish that will not quit, redfish can be absolute brutes. And as such, they have become one of the most sought after fish in the shallows of Florida. Since their protection in the mid 1980's redfish numbers have proliferated and are especially abundant and large on the east central Florida coastline. Redfish have a coppery bronze color with a tinge of red, color will vary depending on water clarity. Normally redfish have one spot on the base of their tails but often there are several or many spots. Take a look at these spots caught by a lagooner fisherman. [LOOK]
East Central Florida boast some of the best inshore and estuary fishing for redfish in the world. Our redfish are renown for both quantity and quality. They are found in the lagoon systems all around the coast of Florida and some are even found offshore. This species is often found feeding in less than one foot of water while foraging for crustaceans, fish and small mollusk. Often they are in such shallow water that you can see their tales and backs protruding from the water, hence the term "tailing redfish".
Best Redfish Locations
Sightfishing Mecca from Oakhill to Playlinda Beach. World famous fishing waters in the Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge in Northern Brevard County. Mosquito Lagoon can have crystal clear water allowing flyfisherman and light-tackle fisherman great opportunities to sight fish for tailing redfish and other species.
Northern Indian River Lagoon
Banana Creek, Titusville, Carbide Flats, Haulover Canal, Dummit Cove, Scottsmore are only some of the known redfish haunts in this area.
The Banana River has a NMZ or No Motorized Zone in the very north adjacent to Canaveral Airforce Base and NASA property. This are can be extremely productive for big schooling redfish as they are not subjected to motor boats and fishing pressure.
Not less than 18" or more than 27" and only 1 fish per harvester per day.
51 lbs., 8 ozs.

November - 2017 Fishing Report
The Banana River has had some spectacular days during October of 2017 and heading into November we are already plucking some nice sized trout in the shallow waters off Cocoa Beach and Merritt Island. Look for redfish and sea trout to improve as the temperatures continue to cool and the deeper dropoffs to provide plenty of action. Most of the fish during this month have been caught on rocky out-croppings or shallow water estuaries along the edges of islands and shorelines. Basically if you find good amounts of bait, you will find the fish
November - 2017 Fishing Forecast
Thanksgiving in Central Florida and on the Banana River Lagoon can be a great time of the year for almost all types of inshore species native to our area. Redfish, black drum and sea trout will really kick in as the month matures and will only get better as the winter deepens. Look for this fall month to produce good numbers of redfish and some spotted sea trout. If it's a very cool month, it should be better and warmer will still produce well. The nice thing about November too is that there is less fishing pressure and boaters on the lagoon. This will help with the gathering of fish in the busier parts of the lagoon and it's also a good time to have some seclusion.
