Cocoa Beach fishing Captain Richard will take you places that most natives in Brevard have never been or heard of to stalk fish and reel them in .

A Word from a Brevard County fishing guide

As a native Floridian fishing guide on the Space Coast, I've had the pleasure of growing up on the waterways surrounding my home and going fishing with my father. He took me offshore fishing for cobia king mackerel , dolphin and basically anything that would bite. He also took me on frequent trips to Sebastian Inlet where we camped and fished the inlet for snook, redfish and sea trout. I simply love to take out parents and their children on fishing trips and watch them enjoy the outdoors and fishing as much as I did with my father.

Whether I'm guiding in north Brevard County on the Mosquito Lagoon for redfish or Central Brevard looking for black drum and spotted sea trout on the Banana River Lagoon or possibly drifting Sebastian Inlet at night for snook in the southern part of the county, I never get tired of fishing with anglers and sharing what I've found out about my Florida's fishing.

Please come and visit us here in Brevard County and take a fishing trip with me so I can share what I've grown up in Florida learning.

God Bless,
Captain Richard Bradley

Located less than 30 minutes east of the Orlando International Airport, and slightly further from Disney and it's surrounding theme parks Universal and Sea World is The Space Coast and it's shorelines, islands and waterways filled with game fish and wildlife for any visitors to delight in. When exiting from the Orlando Airport it's a straight shot on State Road 528 to world class destinations on Florida's Lagoons and straight on to Port Canaveral and the Atlantic Ocean for big game fishing and/or strolling on the beach.

Fishing Reports

January - 2018 Fishing Report

The Banana River comes alive during the colder months of year and January is the peak season for deep hole trout, redfish and juvenile black drum. We've been fishing the deeper canals and slews with success during the cold fronts when the water is cold and also catching some great sized fish on the flats adjacent to these holes. Look for the Banana River to improve as the winter gets colder and the fish transition to their winter haunts in pursuit of cold, stable water. Look for mature fish to seek warmth on the shallow shorelines nearby.

Fishing Forecast

January - 2018 Fishing Forecast

Is it going to be an Indian Summer this January or possibly a deep freeze Polar Vortex? These are the questions that all fishing guides want to know. Depending on how this winter plays out with temperatures, winds and other conditions will dictate how our fishing will pan out in January. Unless the water is churned up by high winds, January will produce some of the cleanest and clearest water of the year in Central Florida as colder water kills of plankton life in the lagoons and mild northeast winds often push in clearer water in the ocean. Look for great inshore fishing in the Mosquito Lagoon and Northern end of the Indian River toward Titusville. If the winds and water are all frothed up it can be a crap shoot for fishing in almost every inshore locations and will shutdown all offshore fishing due to small craft warnings and safety warnings. However, between fronts, look for some of the best fishing of the year in January both inshore and offshore in Central Florida.
