Spot Stalker Charters LLC invites you to team up with Captain Todd Vivian for an exciting fishing trip in the inshore and nearshore waters over at Florida’s East Coast. He will take you fishing along Ponce Inlet and the New Smyrna Beach area to show you where the finest fishing spots around are hidden.

Your boat for the day will be a Skeeter SX240. It’s powered by a 300 HP Yamaha outboard and has a Minn Kota trolling motor that helps it navigate shallow waters with ease. Equipped with a Garmin Echoscan GPS which provides you with side imaging and down imaging along with GPS functions, and all the regulation safety gear, it’s got all you need for a productive day on the water.

The premium times for Tarpon are late July through September. The jumbo Redfish will begin showing during these times as well but will continue through November. In late fall, you will begin fishing Flounder and Sheepshead along with the usual Redfish, Black Drum, and sharks. Make sure to let Captain Todd know if you’re a fan of fishing on the fly – he’ll be happy to provide you with fly gear if you need it, only one angler at a time while fly fishing.

Armed with decades of fishing experience under his belt, Captain Todd can accommodate novice anglers and veterans alike. He’ll supply you with rods, reels, and terminal tackle, as well as fishing licenses, and water. Feel free to bring your own lunch if you fancy a snack during the trip, as well as a pair of sunglasses and a hat so you can fish and relax.

2450 Boat Ramp Dr.

I began fishing the flats and backwaters of Florida over 20 years ago. I have lived in Florida now since 2008 and spend over 200 days a year on the water in the Mosquito Lagoon and North Indian River areas. I grew up in the Pacific NW and fishing is some of my earliest memories. After college I went to work for Lamiglas, Inc. as a rod/blank designer. Lamiglas is one of the NW's largest Fishing Rod Manufacturers. After 20 years designing rods for Lamiglas I moved to Florida where I have been designing rod building components and equipment along with rod blanks for Mud Hole Custom Tackle.
