About Inshore Fishing

Why Backcountry Fish with Lagooner?

Each sunrise on the Mosquito Lagoon is an explosion of wildlife and God’s creation. It’s not uncommon to watch pods of manatee and dolphins calmly basking or playing while rapidly gliding across shallow grass flats to each fishing destination. Mangrove islands and wading egrets give way to isolated fishing holes and oyster beds. I desire to show you the outdoor experiences I’ve shared with my family and thousands of people over the years. Our lagoons will immerse you into backcountry fishing unlike any other part of the world.

The Best Time to Inshore Fish

Inshore fishing is year round on the local lagoons. Our customers typically visit seasonally the same month each year.  It’s difficult to nail-down the exact month or season that’s best for light tackle inshore fishing because there is so much variety. As I’ve matured in age and time on the water, I’ve found during the fall, I tend to spend more time at Sebastian Inlet for snook.  During the winter months the sheltered waters of the Mosquito Lagoon produce good numbers of redfish and sea trout. The spring is a bonanza of fish activity on the Indian River Lagoon.

The Deacon of Fishing
I’ve known Captain Richard before he became a well known inshore fishing guide. We spent decades together fishing and exploring the coastal waterways where we live. He embodies an outdoorsman and friend. I will always cherish our times together both in the boat and at home. Fishing goes beyond an activity when you spend a day with Richard.

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 more
