Sight Fishing Charters
The Indian River Lagoon On The Space Coast
Friday April 28, 2017
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.

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.

Inshore Charter Fishing in the Banana River Lagoon near 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.
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.
