Sight Fishing Charters
The Indian River Lagoon On The Space Coast
Friday August 18, 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.

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.
Captain Richard was great company on the boat. He's a blast to hang out with and will glady joke around with everyone. When it came to the fishing it was a tough day to start but we were able to find a school of drummer fish. He was able to spot a school of fish from his boat which was pretty cool. We caught a good 20-25 lb black drumfish which made the whole trip worth it. For sure recommend captain Richard.
