Fins In Low Places

Fins In Low Places is located in New Smyrna Beach, Florida. The crew specializes in fishing the inshore waters around areas 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.

All the trips are aboard an 18’ Hell’s Bay Waterman "Guide Edition" skiff, which comes powered by a 60 HP Suzuki engine. This clean, seaworthy vessel can comfortably take up to three anglers to fish in comfort and style. The boat is fitted with a radar and VHF radio, and a Yeti cooler to keep your catch cold throughout your trip.

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!
