Fishing Charters in Florida

E ach morning I leave behind the trace of land for the clean early morning smell of indigo waters on a deep sea fishing charter. We let flying fish and frigate birds lure us offshore to unfathomable depths where reefs and shipwrecks gather hordes of fish.

On other days I explore the mangrove shorelines and grass flats on vast, remote lagoons for inshore game fish. My Cocoa Beach fishing charter will transport you to timeless backcountry waterways where manatees and dolphin feed and play.

Join me for one of these adventures only minutes away from Orlando, Disney & Universal Studios.

Why Fish With Me?

Growing up on the water and fishing the area my entire life, I look forward to getting you on board. I’m not a “Fishing Charter Company” claiming to be a family run business. It is myself and my wife, Gina, we don’t hire other guides to run our boats. However, it is important to me to stay well connected with changing conditions and keep great relationships with other local, reputable charter captains. Lagooner Fishing customer’s testimonies and their repeat business speak for themselves. When you meet me at the docks, you can be assured I will be taking you fishing for the day.

Fish With Me

Top-notch and Pristine

I have had the fortune to have fished with Captain Richard on a number of occasions. While I consider myself to be a pretty good recreational fisherman, each time I fished with him I left with a wealth of new information about not only fishing, but the entire intercoastal ecosystem. Speaking with and learning from Captain Bradley is worth the trip by itself, but he never failed to put us on fish. While on Lagooner trips, we have landed our personal best snook, redfish, kingfish, tarpon and he even put us on a sailfish. I am also impressed with the amount a care Captain Richard puts on the safety of his Guests. This is very evident in how well he maintains his boats and motors. He also carries this over with his other equipment as well. His gear is always top-notch and in pristine condition. I value his opinion so much that I reached out to him when I was looking to buy my own fishing boat. He spent a lot of time giving me the pros and cons of different flats boats. He certainly did not have to spend time doing this since he was not \"on the clock,\" but I know he did this out of his passion for fishing and his commitment to his customers. I took his advice and bought an Action Craft since he swore by it. There might be a problem with my boat though, it does not catch as many fish as Captain Richard's boat!

Capt. Gina was quick to respond and super to deal with!

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!

Caught a lot of fish

My wife and I have been on several trips with Captain Richard and have always had a great time and have usually caught a lot of fish, and would have had a wonderful day on the water even if we would not have been so lucky. I would recommend Lagooner to anyone wanting a fun day out fishing.
