Reunion of friends

Reunion of friends and return to a favorite locale. We were 2 elderly gentlemen, one from south Florida the other from the Northern end, both long time anglers and of course both know-it-alls. Of course the only one who knew what was going on in the Indian River was Capt. Richard. It rapidly became clear that the Lagoon was an extension of his home and that its creatures were his neighbors. He knew the corridors taken by the fish, the haunts of the baitfish which attracted them and what the activities of the birds was revealing about both. Conditions were tough but his knowledge payed off with a few good fish. But it's more than that. Capt. Richard is a true native, knowledgeable in the areas of the biology, the economics and politics of coastal Florida with a strong interest in the future health of the region. After our extremely enjoyable day on the water we both felt greatly enriched and informed by the experience. Captains Richard and Gina kept us in the loop from the moment we booked until it was time to head home, even told us where not to eat in Cocoa Beach.

Great Spring Break Trip

Booked a day off shore with Capt Richard. Took two of my sons (19 and 24), neither who have been in open water before. Capt Richard was fantastic from the start. Explained everything the night before, was waiting for us at the dock and was patient with us landies. It was a slow day fishing, but we managed a sailfish (broke off at the boat), a Jack Crevalle (those things put up a fight), and a barracuda. Capt Richard worked hard to put us on fish. We saw Angelfish, sea turtles, porpoise, and had a fantastic time. Looking forward to my next trip to Cocoa Beach as I will definitely book with Lagooner again

Well Prepared...

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!
