Captain Dustin Link is a native to New Smyrna Beach and has been fishing these waters since childhood. He can’t wait to show you the secrets spots and effective techniques, and promises to provide a personalized experience all day long.

Gently drift along the water aboard a 17’ Spyder FX17 skiff. This light vessel will allow you to navigate even the skinniest water, as you wind your way around the maze of waterways in amazement at the nature around you.

Fitted with a casting platform, you’ll have an excellent view of your target throughout your battle.

As the name suggests, sight fishing is the name of the game with Capt. Dustin. Try spinning, popping, jigging, or even trolling to make your catch. Exciting game fish and delicious species are on offer year-round. Go after Tarpon and Snook for a trophy catch, or focus on Groupers and Redfish to take home for a tasty treat. If you have experience fly fishing, equipment can be provided for you to test your skills.

The onboard ice box will keep your catch fresh all day, before the captain cleans and prepares it for you to take home at the end of the day. With fishing licenses provided for all 3 anglers, all you’ll need to do is settle in for an unforgettable day’s fishing with Xtreme Sight Fishing Charters. Capt. Dustin’s knowledge of the area is second to none, and he’s calling you aboard to enjoy the fishing paradise that is Eastern Florida.

My name is Captain Dustin link and I have been fishing Florida's east coast for over 20 years. I can barely remember back in the day when my dad used to take me out with him and sit me on his leg while he was out fishing and all the fish we used to catch and that's what made me love fishing. I grew up fishing the east coast of Florida from Daytona all the way down to Stewart. the reason I became a guide is that there is no better feeling to me than watching somebody hook up to a nice big fish and watch their face light up as they reel in that fish and make a memory for life, that's why I do what I do. I know the waters I fish very well and know I can make someone's day by putting them on fish and seeing their face light up... To me, that's more important than money and that's what makes me do what I do and love what I do!
