"I can't imagine going on a better fishing trip than with good quality friends for big spawning snook on the beach," explains Captain Richard. Long time college buddy Girard Middleton and now his new life friend Jeff Thummel showed a fishing guide how to have a great time as these two expert anglers battled snook that Captain Richard had been staking out for several days in the summer.
"All I had to do is show these two the fish and let them at them! Jeff and Girard made quick work of loads of big spawning snook off Cocoa Beach and the Canaveral Seashore," explains Richard. "Every year the snook make their appearance on the beach between June and August and it's an important time for the snook to spawn and it's been banner especially since the snook are officially a gamefish and have strict regulations."
You'll see Jeff catch some nice snook while Captain Richard and Girard work the camera and share in the fun. Jeff hooks a monster that he can't turn and Richard finishes the movie with a snook the boys allowed him to catch thile they played the role of guide. It's a smash of a snook on the beach movie and you should really enjoy these guys catching some great snook on the beach.

August - 2017 Fishing Report
August - 2017 Fishing Forecast
August is another hot month on the Banana River Lagoon for temperatures but not as good for fishing. Look to the ocean out of Port Canaveral to be more productive or try some fishing down at Sebastian are during the hottest summer months. Redfish can move into the deeper flat regions of the Banana River during the later part of August in preparation of the spawn in September, but these will be the larger redfish and not the slot size that many enjoy for a meal. Look for next month to be a better month for the Banana River and then into the early winter it will even get better. If you're really looking to fish on the Banana River set up a half day evening trip or an early morning pre-dawn trip for snook and reds.

Inshore and Offshore Charter Fishing near Orlando and 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!
