Fish the Banana River Lagoon with Captain Frank Catino

The Banana River is part of the Indian River Lagoon system. Characterized by its long, narrow shape, this estuary is bordered by barrier islands on the east and on the west by Merritt Island. The Banana River lagoon’s northern section is connected to the Banana Creek, that meanders through the Kennedy Space Center and connects to the Indian River Lagoon. This Brevard County waterway is comprised of salt marshes, mangroves, swamps, seagrasses, oyster beds and spoil islands.

The Banana River is home to over 400 species of fish, hundreds of types of mollusk, shrimp and crabs, making it a highly diverse waterway. With over 45 square miles or nearly 30,000 acres of fishing area, the Banana River makes for great fly fishing or light tackle fishing. The more than 50 spoil islands provide great fishing potential for shallow water anglers.
