Port Canaveral Jack

Port Canaveral Professional Charter Captain

Tuesday January 23, 2018

"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...

Canaveral Fish you can catch ...

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.

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.

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.

As good as it gets on the water! - Have been fishing 3 different times with Captain Richard and was very pleased with every trip! We caught cobia, kingfish, dolphin,giant redfish,and even hooked on to a nice marlin! took my 7 year old grandson on one of the trips,and Captain Richard was very good with him. He had him put the bait in the live well, as well as take them out. I would recommend Lagooner to anyone that likes cathing FISH!
