The Indian River Shallow Water Flats
Fishing Around The Lagoons In Central Florida
Friday April 28, 2017
Fishing in shallow water is nothing new on the Indian River Lagoon, but it's often overlooked by the vast majority of anglers. "When I was a kid we simply waded the local lagoons for sea trout, redfish and other Florida gamefish. It often surprised me to see large fish in ankle deep water while wading and swimming around my home", says Captain Richard of Lagooner Fishing Guides.
Don't be surprised to see big sea trout caught in less than one foot of water in any of our lagoons, the biggest trout like the shallows, while the immature ones seem to lurk on the edge of deeper grassflats and dropoffs. Redfish can school in the ocean or inches of water in the shallowest lagoons and anglers should often look to the skinniest water for these crustacean munching gamefish.
Shallow water fishing can prove to be a great way to spend the day on the Indian River Lagoon when you're visiting Florida. Come explore the backwaters of the Space Coast and it's famous fishery with Lagooner Fishing Guides on your next adventure with Captain Richard Bradley.

April - 2017 Fishing Report
April - 2017 Fishing Forecast
April of 2017 should be a great spring for fishing in both inshore and offshore coastal waters of Central Florida. Look to the Mosquito Lagoon and Banana Rivers to produce redfish and sea trout consistently and then look toward the ocean and depending on the water temps, clear skies and wind the cobia will be on their way north and migrating past Canaveral towards their northern grounds on the mid-Atlantic seaboard. Central Florida's weather during the spring is usually no less than spectacular as the college spring breakers are winding up the end of their vacation and heading back to campus to finish up before summer break. Daytona Beach host several spring events from NASCAR Races, Bike Week and Spring Break activities while Cocoa Beach and it's Space Coast offer a much less crowded alternative for vacationers to seek a more secluded and restful Holiday. The temperatures are rising and the fishing should be heating up too in East Central Florida's Cocoa Beach.

We had an outstanding experience with Lagooner! To start, Captain Gina made the booking quick and easy. All follow-up and communication was just like she promised. Once we were on the water, Captain Richard made the day fun for everyone and put us on fish at every stop. I would recommend Lagooner to anyone looking for a charter in Cocoa Beach.
