ACTIVITIES
A few things you may enjoy are some of the activities we love like fishing, surfing, hiking the state parks, canoeing the springs, basking in the crystal clear waters off the west coast, chasing tiny fish over the reefs in the Florida Keys, hunting for scallops in the underwater grass beds to exploring our nation’s oldest city. Topping this all off we regularly catch sight of rockets being launched into space soaring over our house on the magnificent Atlantic ocean.

Captain Richard Bradley

Captain Richard Bradley

Charter Fishing Captain/Guide

One thing you probably have always heard about Florida is the fantastic fishing here. This place is truly an outdoor enthusiasts paradise. With sites of dolphin riding your wake to alligators laying on the banks, you will find Florida inshore and deep sea fishing charters are an excellent opportunity to experience Florida.

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

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.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
