With exciting adventures suitable for curious beginners and experienced anglers alike, Tightline Fishing Charters is a great choice. With Captain Ron Hatcher, you will be able to make an outstanding catch possible and create memories that will last forever.

You won’t be crowded on the captain’s boat. At 25’ long, this spacious vessel has enough storage and fishing room, as well as comfortable seating for up to 6 anglers. The boat comes powered by a 300 HP Suzuki engine, which is a quick and quiet 4-stroke motor. There is also a Humminbird 1199 side sonar and a Minn Kota i-Pilot, designed to find the fish and stay on top of the hottest bite.

Capt. Ron will guide you to the best spots in the area, where you will be able to sample inshore and nearshore species. The list of your Port Orange catches will include anything from Amberjack and Tarpon to Pompano, Cobia, Kingfish, Black Drum, Redfish, Flounder, Snook, Seatrout, Snapper, and Sharks.

Your trip with Tightline Fishing Charters will include rods, reels, tackle, lures, bait, and fishing licenses. Your food and drinks are always welcome on board!

Please note Capt. Ron is unavailable for phone calls and inquiries after 9 PM every day.
