Fishing Guide for Inshore Redfish

Best Bet for Inshore Red Drum and Channel Bass in Cocoa Beach

Saturday December 16, 2017

On any given day there's bound to be some redfish caught around Cocoa Beach, but a good fishing guide can often turn a mediocre day of fishing into a great day of fishing. Known for it's warm sub-tropical weather, beautiful beaches and clear lagoons, Cocoa Beach host some of the best inshore fishing for a variety of sportfish including sea trout, tarpon, snook and yes... even the giant redfish or channel bass as they are often called.

If you decide to go on a fishing trip and target red fish in the Cocoa Beach area, you'll need to hire an experienced guide that's properly equipped with the correct tackle and also the qualified vessels for moving around the shallow water lagoons where the redfish frequently roam and feed. Redfish or "Reds" as they are often called, can be elusive to many anglers because their habits are often misunderstood. These heavy bodied fish feed and live in the shallow water areas where normal boats don't have the capabilities to pursue them. It's essential to have a shallow running boat to get to the fish and offer lures and/or baits to them.

How Can I Connect to a Cocoa Beach Fishing Guide?

Review / Trip Advisor

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.

Excellent people and experience! - My husband and I had never tried anything like this before so we were a bit nervous about being sea sick. Captain Richard was so nice and laid back and gave us tips and tricks to try and fight it off. My husband unfortunately was very sick even before we started to get the lines out. Captain Richard took control and told him what to do and even where to stand in the boat to make it better. Unfortunately after captain Richard tried all his tricks my husband was still pretty sick so we had to call it a day an hour early.
The day was definitely not a loss though. Even though we didn't get to catch any fish I still got to see tons of wildlife! We saw everything from dozens of turtles to Dolphins, Rays, and even an 8 ft hammerhead shark! Captain Richard is a pro and definitely knows what he's doing and talking about. I would recommend this trip for sure!
