About Deep Sea Fishing Trips

Why Deep Sea Fish with Lagooner?

Many seasoned sports fishing enthusiast consider deep sea fishing charters the best fishing experience on Florida’s east coast. Our charters are a unique blend of ocean pelagics, migratory and bottom fish. Depending on the season and angler experience, I’ve learned how to determine when and where the best bite is for almost every occasion. I exclusively deep sea fish in the warmer seasons and the inland & nearshore waters during the winter. With each of my trips, I do provide all the necessary tackle and equipment, just come aboard and enjoy. All around you will find deep sea Port Canaveral Fishing Charters are an exciting way to spend the day and it’s the closest Orlando Fishing.

The Best Time for Deep Sea Fishing

Seasons and conditions play a significant factor in our Cocoa Beach fishing charters. Typically, March through September is most consistent. March begins the Cobia run while April thru May is productive months for mahi-mahi. Our summertime staple is king mackerel, with a variety of gamefish from sailfish, jack crevalle, sharks, tarpon and a few others. Our area is not a promised land for one particular species. Each year there will be an occasional weekend open for snapper. Bottom fishing may be productive during the winter months, but weather conditions are volatile and change rapidly. Staying in tune with the NOAA website for weather conditions and updates helps with planning.

Deep Sea Fishing Report November 2022

November Has Been Challenging to Get Offshore
When you can get offshore, the king mackerel have been very cooperative. The fall mullet run has continued to be fun this November and should continue until big surf and swells push them down the coastline. Look for a smattering of bull redfish on the bouyline and in the Canaveral bite along with whiting, some pompano, and bluefish for the light tackle enthusiast.

Tripletail are traditionally a November contender, but the last several years have not been that exciting, this year continues to be a let down for numbers of tripletail.

Cobia makes a small run south during November and this year's cobia run has been a little productive on the outer reefs and wrecks when the weather, wind and sea conditions are favorable.

We had a deep sea trip planned for Tuesday March 9th. However mother nature had other plans and due to rough seas we decided to go on a inshore trip. We fished for 5 and half hours without boating a fish. I blame this on the weather a few days prior lows in the 50s. That's why they call it fishing and not catching. Capt Richard did everything he could to find fish but unfortunately the fish were not to be found. I was extremely grateful of Capt. Richard's offer for no charge. I did not think that was right due to using his boat ,fuel and his guidance. To me that shows that Capt Richard is a very honest business man. I would highly recommend his charter service and will definitely schedule a trip when I visit Cocoa Beach area again. Bill and Kay Dearworthread more

Took my son and dad fishing with Lagooner this past week. This was my sons first time deep sea fishing. Well needless to say, it was his best experience in a long time. He caught a 50 pound sail fish on his first catch. It wore him out to reel it in but it was all worth it. We all caught different variety of fish. I got a Barracuda! King Mackerel and Cobia were also caught. And we got to take them home eat! Richard definitely made the experience memorable and enjoyable! We had such a blast and his knowledge of fishing and his experience as a boat captain are unmatched. We will definitely be booking with Lagooner again next year. Thank you Richard and Gina for a wonderful time with Lagooner Fishing!!read more

Took my mom for her first fishing excursion for Mother's Day. She is 76 years old and wanted to catch a "big one"! Richard at Lagooner Fishing was terrific. Taught her some tricks, took us to his secret fishing spot and helped her catch a WHOPPER! I highly recommend this experience for all ages! Thank you Richard Bradley 🐟❤️🎣read more

My son and I had a lovely time on the ocean today with Captain Richard. The fishing was great, took home two large King fish and a Spainish Mackerel. Had them for dinner tonight, was so yummy. We saw many dolphins, some huge sea turtles, a manatee and a shark. Was not only a fishing trip but also a great nature adventure. Loved feeding the leftover bait fish to the pelicans and woodstorks. I HIGHLY recommend taking this trip. Worth every penny.read more

Captain Richard was great company on the boat. He's a blast to hang out with and will glady joke around with everyone. When it came to the fishing it was a tough day to start but we were able to find a school of drummer fish. He was able to spot a school of fish from his boat which was pretty cool. We caught a good 20-25 lb black drumfish which made the whole trip worth it. For sure recommend captain Richard.read more

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!read more
