Sight Fishing Charters
The Indian River Lagoon On The Space Coast
Thursday June 21, 2018
Sight fishing is a popular fishing method in Indian River lagoon on Florida's east coast. Movement stirring in the water, sillohuettes and shadows lurking in the grass beds or possibly tailing redfish are all signs that anglers need to watch and learn when locating fish.
Having great eyesight helps when you're looking for the tell tale signs and the presence of fish, but it's not all about keen eyes according Captain Richard of Lagooner Fishing Guides. "Sight Fishing is about training your eyes and continually looking. It helps to have great eyesight, but if you don't practice looking for signs of fish, you'll never sharpen your ability to visually find them".
What to look for when Sightfishing
Tailing Fish - Calm days make it easy to see fish swimming and tailing. Fish tail in deep and shallow water, so don't restrict your glances to only the shallows.
Movements or Stirring Water - Moving water almost always means life in the water. Learn to look for feeding fish, bait, and movements. Over time, you'll learn what's relevant and not in the waters you frequent.
The Push - The push is another form of movements in the water, but is worth a separate mention. Schools of fish push water, whether it's baitfish or gamefish, learn to look for the push from schools of fish.
The Fish - Yeah, look for the fish with a pair of polarized sunglasses on sunny days. If it's clear enough you may be able to simply see the fish lying, swimming or feeding in the water.
Remember that sightfishing is a developed skill and many believe you never master mother nature and her many curveballs she throws at you with the elements. Fish tail on windy days and they tail on glassy mornings, learn to train your eyes in all conditions and you'll be a better fisherman.

June - 2018 Fishing Report
June - 2018 Fishing Forecast
June of 2018 is looking to be a hot summer with hot fishing off of East Central Florida near Cocoa Beach. Orlando visitors should anticipate the warm weather and great fishing that coastal and offshore fishing provides in the warm Atlantic Ocean this time of year. Last year in 2017 we saw many tarpon exceeding 100 pounds caught off the Brevard County beaches along with a good amount of sharks, king mackerel and really big Jack Crevelle that kept things interesting. Looking forward to this year's forecast on the Space Coast remember that the coastal waters along the Atlantic seaboard and Ocean will probably be the most productive fishing during the month of June and as we look in to August the ocean will look to be the most inviting destination for anglers in the heat of the Central Florida Summer.

Inshore and Offshore Charter Fishing near Orlando and Cocoa Beach, Florida. Catch redfish, sea trout, tarpon, snook and many other saltwater gamefish aboard the world famous Lagooner flats fishing boat with renowned Captain Richard Bradley.
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.
