Redfish Trips In East Central Florida On The Indian River Lagoon

Saturday April 21, 2018

When you're planning your next trip to Florida, consider a trip to the Indian River Lagoon and it's rich offerings of wildlife and fishing. The shallow water estuaries and lagoons with their mangrove shorelines offer some awesome opportunities for the traveling angler.

Years ago families took long car trips across the states to visit friends and relatives stopping along the way at local attractions and roadside motels. Here in central Florida's east coast from Daytona Beach and southward to Fort Pierce we still have some great family getaways and activities for the roaming vacationer.

Daytona Beach

Speedways, bike weeks and spring breaks are great reasons to gather at this popular vacation town. You'll find the mosquito lagoon to the south and great fishing to be found under an hour away. World famous for it's beaches and tourist attractions that have drawn college kids on spring break, Daytona offers more attractions than any other beach community in Florida.

Cocoa Beach & Port Canaveral

Cruise Ships and Beaches await the vacationer looking for a sleepier town to relax and possibly go on a shallow water fishing trip on the Indian River Lagoon in pursuit of redfish and sea trout. Ron Jon's surf shop is a popular tourist attraction and air boat rides out west of town will provide a thrilling activity for the family. Casual walks, surfing and dining are offered in this "flip flop" wearing town. The people are friendly and the fishing is superb...

Sebastian Inlet to Ft Pierce

One of the east coast waterway treasures is located at the south end of Brevard County and in Indian River County on the intra coastal waterway. Further away from Orlando and Daytona, the Indian River's south end takes a little more time to drive to, but it's often worth it with it's diverse angling opportunities. Fishing enthusiast can expect snook and tarpon to be consistent along with the standard redfish and sea trout. Fall and Spring are great target seasons for the angler who's making a plan.

A winter or summer vacation on Florida's Indian River Lagoon can be a worthy break from the hustle and bustle of Orlando's theme parks. It's a great opportunity to see and experience Florida's natural unspoiled areas and catch a few fish in the Florida sunshine. Take a break while you're vacationing in Central Florida and book a trip with a Lagooner fishing guide on the beautiful Indian River Lagoon.

Where is the Indian River Lagoon

Technically the IRL or Indian River is part of the Intracoastal waterway on the eastern seaboard of the United States. The name of this body of water changes as you traverse the waterway from Biscayne Bay in Miami and northward toward the Chesapeake Bay or Montawk New Jersey.

East Central Florida's prominent Indian River Lagoon sections are called the Mosquito Lagoon, Banana River Lagoon and of course the Indian River Lagoon as it heads south toward Sebastian Inlet and Fort Pierce with the North Boundary skirting a small town called Scottsmoore and Mims. Fishing information on the Indian River can be found at the links above.

April - 2018 Fishing Forecast

April of 2018 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.
