Port Canaveral Jack
Port Canaveral Professional Charter Captain

"Jack Crevalle school off the beaches during the summer
months off Port Canaveral and that's what our professional
charter fishing Captain put us on. Truly one of the
greatest mornings I've ever had on the water, porpoise at
the side of the boat, a magnificent sunrise, and big fighting
fish I still dream about!!
I would recommend a trip with Capt. Richard to anyone who loves to fish, a great guy and a true professional!!", explains Brad Knope from Wisconsin.
Brad Knope displays an almost an over 20 pound jack crevalle before releasing.
One of the blessing of being a fishing guide is watching people enjoy themselves while fishing. Brad and Kyle never stopped smiling from the time they got in the boat till they left the water. I hope this short fishing trip will get ya'll by till the next time you visit our area again.
Anglers and Friends,
One of the hardest fighting fish in the ocean is the Jack Crevelle. There are several versions of jacks including Amberjack, bar jacks and Amaco Jacks and all can give you the fight of your life when on the receiving end of a rod and reel.
These two anglers from Wisconsin went fishing with me a few years ago and picked a fight with a nice sized jack. I don't believe they understood the impact a jack can have on the rest of your day. Jacks tore in to the baits and the next 40 minutes was a grueling fist fight with a willing opponent.
Come down and have your fistfight with a jack this summer on beautiful Cocoa Beach...

Adjacent to Cocoa Beach is Port Canaveral with it's rock jetties and light house peering out to the eastern Atlantic ocean. Schools of Jack Crevalle swim anxiously around the water seeking to trounce on prey like piranha. On the buoy line you can seasonally sight fish for cobia and tripletail, while the more adventurous push further offshore for king mackerel, wahoo, mahi-mahi, sailfish and marlin. Pleasure has no boundaries here... there is something for everyone from the novice to the expert angler, Cocoa Beach has the most fishing excitement anywhere!
Jack Crevalle are a beautiful color of bluish-green to greenish-gold on their backs and have silvery or yellowish bellies. The Jack's soft dorsal and anal fins are almost identical in size and they have a prominent black spot on the gill cover. They also have a black spot at the base of each pectoral fins and no scales on the throat.
Jacks are common in both INSHORE waters and the open sea. They seem to show up anywhere and everywhere but more often where there's plenty of food or baitfish around. Look for schools of jacks turning the water yellow or finning as they circle near the surface of the water. Jacks will travel into fresh or brackish water and are often seen in springs that lead into the ocean.
One of the memorable catches for a saltwater angler is their first Jack. The crevalle tend to stay inshore or near offshore and can be caught in both salt and freshwater rivers around florida and other southern states. Jacks are often seen under diving birds making a commotion on the water surface while feeding on bait. Jacks tolerate a wide range of salinities; schools corner a school of baitfish at the surface and feed with commotion that can be seen at great distances; feeds mainly on small fish; peak spawning occurs OFFSHORE from March through September.
No limit or size regulation.

June - 2017 Fishing Report
June - 2017 Fishing Forecast
June of 2017 is looking to be a hot summer with hot fishing off of East Central Florida near Cocoa Beach. Orlando visitors should anticipate the warm weather and great fishing that coastal and offshore fishing provides in the warm Atlantic Ocean this time of year. Last year in 2016 we saw many tarpon exceeding 100 pounds caught off the Brevard County beaches along with a good amount of sharks, king mackerel and really big Jack Crevelle that kept things interesting. Looking forward to this year's forecast on the Space Coast remember that the coastal waters along the Atlantic seaboard and Ocean will probably be the most productive fishing during the month of June and as we look in to August the ocean will look to be the most inviting destination for anglers in the heat of the Central Florida Summer.

Inshore Charter Fishing in the Banana River Lagoon near 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.
A very knowledgeable guide and knows the area waters well. We were on big reds and trout within minutes of the leaving the dock and ventured about the lagoon to catch different species. The scenery in the Lagoon is remarkable!
Richard’s boat was well equipped with good equipment, he was well prepared to adapt to the different types of fishing through out the day. My primary focus was sight fishing for big reds on fly - the flies that Capt. Richard provided were right on!
Booking the charter was a breeze, his wife Capt. Gina was very accommodating to work me in (thank you Capt. Gina).
Capt. Richard seemed to know who was hungry at the right times – and we had some impressive catches! Well done Capt. Richard, and thanks for a great day on the water!
