Try N’ Hooker Fishing Charters runs fishing trips around the fishing grounds out of Port Orange. Here you will find a range of fishing trips to cater to your skill levels, so both novice fishermen and hardcore anglers are welcome to hop onboard. Captain Jason is a pro fisherman who has been fishing his whole life. If someone can show you around and help you have a memorable trip, that’s him.

You will be fishing from a 42’ Ocean Yacht saltwater fishing boat. She was restored in 2016 and features two 425 HP John Deere engines. The vessel is stable and fast, which makes it a perfect tool to make the most out of your visit to Port Orange. She is fitted with GPS, a fishfinder, has A/C, a fighting chair, flybridge, a live bait well, outriggers, an ice box, as well as the standard safety gear. There is a toilet onboard, as well as a galley, refrigerator, two beds, and multimedia system. The boat can take up to six anglers, which is great for families or groups of friends.

Depending on what you want to catch and how much time you have, you can choose anything from a half day trip to an ultimate fishing experience of twelve hours. You can target Mahi, Wahoo, Snapper, Mackerel, Amberjack, Barracuda, and Sailfish. Whether it’s reef fishing or offshore trolling, Captain Jason’s got you covered.

You will get all the fishing gear onboard, as well as bait and lures. The fishing license is included in the trip price. You should bring your own food and beverages, as well as sunscreen, a cap, sunglasses, and comfortable clothes, with non-marking shoes. If you’re prone to seasickness, it might be a good idea to bring some meds. And, don’t forget a camera.

Once you’re ready, come join Capt. Jason. He is a fifth generation fisherman and fishing is what he does the best. He knows these waters well and will work hard to make your day on the water one to remember.
