What Makes Daytona Beach So Well Known

Hello Visitors, I’m Captain Richard Bradley, and I grew up on Florida’s east coast. Close to the world-famous Daytona, it’s winding waterways and beautiful beaches.

The coastal areas surrounding DAYTONA BEACH are gorgeous and pristine. It’s incredibly fun to explore this area while on a fishing charter, and an excellent activity for everyone (ask DANA AND SHEILA).

In addition, the busy beach town of Daytona offers several exciting attractions and events that make this town famous. The place where racing was born you will find NASCAR’S Daytona International Speedway. Full out days of Bike Week and Biketoberfest, twenty-three miles of white sand beaches and not to forget the infamous Spring Break all take place here in Daytona.

Deep Sea Fishing Daytona Beach Near Canaveral

Most of the Daytona Beach fishing charters offshore are primarily spring through the summer months. The calm, mild and warmer weather while the waves are gentle, makes conditions favorable for that time of the year while targeting species like king mackerel, jack crevalle, cobia, and more.

Inshore Flats Fishing Around Daytona Beach

Uniquely, inshore backcountry fishing holds its own year round.
During, windier and colder months starting in the fall and mostly through the Spring, I spend my time in the backwater country, looking for redfish, sea trout and snook in the saltwater lagoons.

Inshore Fishing

Wide Open Fun

Talk about a place that’s no longer sleepy but offers plenty of activities beyond the norm. You can’t miss NASCAR’S Daytona International Speedway. BikeWeek, Biketoberfest, and Spring Break are quite popular along with driving on the sandy beach. Most would say this is definitely a town that likes to party!

Each one of these destinations is unique to fishing throughout the year. Being on the water full-time I will make sure to give you the best opportunity suited for the day you choose for getting out fishing.

Wow what a great day on the water. Captain Richard was absurdly knowledgeable with a great sense of humor to boot. Would definitely recommend this to any angler at any experience level. Caught a mess of fish and had an absolute blast doing it.

From reserving our charter to arriving back to port, the Lagooner Fishing Team was top notch all the way. I learned very quickly that when Captain Richard got quiet and gazed off into the distance that the bites were near. He's like some sort of fish whisperer and uses his sixth sense to quickly and effectively put meat on the deck. I can't thank Lagooner Fishing enough for making some great memories for my wife, father in law and myself.

We went yesterday and was great. We have fished alot and can't say enough good things about Capt Richard. The radio from other charters were complaining while we were catching 30-40 lb Kings and Cobia. Would not go with anyone else

Richard and Gina are really great people. Since I first fished with Richard about 8 years ago, I try to come back every year. Besides providing a great fishing experience, they have become good friends. Try Lagooner. You won’t be sorry!

My wife and I have chartered Captain Richard for both the ocean and inland rivers. We have had great experiences catching king mackerel, barracuda, and speckled trout. Captain Richard knows how to put you on fish and takes awesome pictures of us with our catch. Would definitely go on another fishing trip with Captain Richard.

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.

This was the best, we would go again in a second. He treated my 13 year old like a young man. Caught very nice fish in a beautiful area. Felt safe at all times. Cpt. Richard made quite the impression on my son. We will be going again, and I would recommend this trip to anyone.

Capt Richard and Capt Gina are awesome...! Very accommodating and they surely will guarantee anyone that goes out in the water with a great time! It's been awhile since I've gone charter fishing with them but I still remember every single moment I was out with them. Thank you Capt Richard and Capt Gina. Keep up the great work and more success to you guys. Fish ON....!!!

Had the best day fishing off Cocoa Beach with Capt. Richard while we were docked in Port Canaveral for the day from the Norwegian Gem. Capt. Gina was so helpful in planning our trip months ahead and even came right to the boat and picked us up when we pulled into Port! We caught some beautiful King Mackerel and had many laughs. I would recommend Lagooner to EVERYONE. If we ever get back down there, we'll definitely go again.

Having been fishing a number of times over the years with Captain Richard I can highly recommend Lagooner Charters. We have always had a great time and he puts you on the fish. Richard and Gina have not only been our charter captains but have become our friends. Give them a try you won't be disappointed.

I have been honored to share a boat with Captain Richard more than once. He and Captain Gina are fantastic people, kind, courteous, and extremely knowledgeable. I have been blessed to fish from Canada to Florida and I can give Lagooner Fishing Charters the highest of praise and I look forward to fishing with them multiple times in the future!

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.
