New Smyrna Fishing Charters

Whether you’re looking for a relaxing day of freshwater fishing, or an inshore adventure off the Atlantic coast of Florida, New Smyrna Fishing Charters has got you covered. Captain Steve Niemoeller is a USCG licensed captain and Florida native with 2 decades of experience as a charter operator. No matter what, you’ll be accommodated based on your preferences and you’ll have an expert at the helm each step of the way.

You’ll set off on a 20’ Day 5 flats boat, ideal for fishing inshore waters, inlets, rivers, and lagoons. The boat comes with a GPS and fishfinder to help you navigate the productive fishing grounds off the coast, as well as along the rivers you’ll be fishing from. She can accommodate up to 6 people and kids ages 3 and older are welcome to join.

Known for its productive waters, New Smyrna hosts a diversity of both freshwater and saltwater species. On freshwater trips, you’ll have a chance to explore the St. Johns River and target Crappie, Largemouth Bass, Trout, and more. These trips are relaxing, fun, and perfect for families with kids!

On saltwater trips, you’ll drift along the inshore waters of Ponce de Leon Inlet, the Indian River, or Mosquito Lagoon. These waters produce trophy species such as Snook, Flounder, Tarpon, Bull Redfish, and Blacktip Shark, making them perfect for thrill-seekers looking to battle big fish.

You’ll be provided with state-of-the-art gear and tackle, as well as a fishing license (for saltwater trips only). Capt. Steve will also offer to clean and fillet your catch on saltwater trips, but not on freshwater trips because Alligators tend to congregate around docks and are attracted to the smell of gutted fish.

Be sure to pack light clothing, sunblock, snacks and drinks, and get ready for an unforgettable adventure with New Smyrna Fishing Charters! Whether you’re an experienced angler or just getting started, Capt. Steve will show you a good time and put you on some of the biggest trophy fish you’ve ever seen.
