Fins In Low Places

Fins In Low Places is located in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. The crew offers inshore fishing and offshore in the local waters and Ocean, including Edgewater, New Smyrna Beach and Ponce Inlet.

Captain Robert McGhee is a Florida native, who was born and raised in Edgewater, Florida. He specializes in sight fishing for Gator Trout, Bull Reds, Black Drum, Snook, Tarpon with spinning or fly, and fishes 250+ days a year.

When weather permits, you will head offshore to local wrecks, reefs and or trolling. He teams up with multiple guides in the area and knows where the fish are biting. Join Capt. McGhee and catch a memory of a lifetime!

All the trips are aboard a 24’ Polar performance fishing boat, which comes powered by a Yamaha 250 HP 4-stroke. This clean, seaworthy vessel can comfortably take up to five anglers to fish in comfort and style. The boat is fitted with navigational electronics and many other professional accessories to save your time while searching for fish.

Fins In Low Places mostly target Tarpon, Redfish, Trout, Snook, Ladyfish, Black Drum, Shark, Sheepshead, and more. Trips include the use of fishing equipment (inc. fly fishing gear), live bait, lures, fishing licenses, bottled water, and catch cleaning. Capt. McGhee will take photos throughout the day on his GoPro, and can also make a short video for a fee.

Capt. McGhee is great with kids and beginners, and can also teach you the basics or go further in depth if you desire. Join him for an adventure of a lifetime!
