Sebastian Inlet Fishing Guide
A Haven for Big Redfish and Trout
Thursday May 25, 2017
Donald Knoke and company had a fish fest at Sebastian Inlet this November evening. "We fish for walleye in Wisconsin with minnows and worms, Captain Richard was using bait the size of the crappie we fish for up there. We Landed redfish that dwarfed the biggest walleye we catch and we did it in our tee-shirts in November!."
Every fall I make our fishing destination to Sebastian, Florida in the southern end of Brevard County to take my anglers out on a fishing cornacopia of angling delight. September starts the fall mullet run and by November the fish are starting to move inshore and toward their winter haunts in the Sebastian River and southward towards Jupiter Inlet and the Loxahatchee River. It's fun time of year and prepares us for the winter bite in the northern part of our County and Mosquito Lagoon.
It's always fun for me to turn people that have never fished for saltwater species and watch them put their heads around the fact that the bait we often use are bigger than many of the panfish they use up in the midwest. Catching bait can simply make their trip, but putting a big redfish, snook or tarpon on the end of their line usually blows their minds.
For all those cheese heads in Wisconsin... Take these guys advice and thaw out with Capt. Richard in East Central Florida.

Night or Evening fishing can be very productive for the experienced angler that can tie their own rigs and operate both spinning and bait reels. It's not for the beginning angler, but it's a great trip for the more advanced.

May - 2017 Fishing Report
May - 2017 Fishing Forecast
May is one of the last month's of good fishing in the Banana River Lagoon until the summer months are over and the temperatures start to fall again in late September and October. May is awesome backwater snook time for Banana River anglers. Look for the early morning bite to produce great numbers of these hard hitting game fish. Fly fisherman only need to bring white mangrove flies in an assortment of sizes, but most snook will be in the single digit size so don't go past a 10 weight. Redfish will be plentiful and healthy sized in many areas of the Banana River and the sea trout will be staging around bait along sandbars and islands. Look for sea trout to slow down late in the month and as the summer temps rise the sea trout fishing will all but disappear excepting the smaller ones in the deeper water. Sebastian and the Mosquito Lagoon will be better sea trout areas in late May and into the summer.

Inshore Charter Fishing in the Banana River Lagoon near Cocoa Beach, Florida. Catch redfish, sea trout, tarpon, snook and many other saltwater gamefish aboard the world famous Lagooner flats fishing boat with renowned Captain Richard Bradley.
A very knowledgeable guide and knows the area waters well. We were on big reds and trout within minutes of the leaving the dock and ventured about the lagoon to catch different species. The scenery in the Lagoon is remarkable!
Richard’s boat was well equipped with good equipment, he was well prepared to adapt to the different types of fishing through out the day. My primary focus was sight fishing for big reds on fly - the flies that Capt. Richard provided were right on!
Booking the charter was a breeze, his wife Capt. Gina was very accommodating to work me in (thank you Capt. Gina).
Capt. Richard seemed to know who was hungry at the right times – and we had some impressive catches! Well done Capt. Richard, and thanks for a great day on the water!
