After attending college in West Palm Beach during the 1980's, Richard came home to work as a charter fishing guide and show people the fantastic fishing areas he'd been priviledged to fish his entire life.

Fishing Reports

During January, Captain Richard spends most of his time in north Brevard County chasing redfish and sea trout in the Mosquito Lagoon. Windy weather has forced us to chunk bait for redfish and sea trout in the shallowest parts of the lagoon where shelter from the elements keeps us out of winter's cool wind. This January has been productive in the south end of the Mosquito Lagoon and also on the Merritt Island side of the Northern Indian River Lagoon across from Titusville. Artificials in slews and deep holes are also producing numbers of small trout, redfish and black drum.

Fishing Forecast

January is an unusual month in Florida and much of the southeast as it can be the coldest month or the warmest month of the winter. If it's the latter than it could be a really good month for targeting tripletail outside of Port Canaveral. Typically there's an Indian Summer that comes sometime in January and there is a short window of opportunity to get out and pull a few fish from structures close in toward the beaches. Calm water and warm water during this month can be the ticket for incoming tripletail on weedlines and an angler only needs to know how and where to be successful in the hunt for Tripletail in January. This January's looking to be a mixed bag of weather with a few opportunities for getting out of Port Canaveral. Ask your guide to look for these conditions and see if he can produce a good day of fishing when the weather is calm enough and the temperatures are high during next few weeks. If the weather doesn't cooperate, look to go inward towards the Banana River Lagoon or Indian River Lagoon to catch some nice redfish or spotted sea trout as this is the month for those two species to start gearing up for the spring spawn and staging in traditional haunts.

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.
