Rare Breed Charters specializes in flats, inshore, nearshore, and offshore fishing for all types of anglers. Captain Daniel Levesque has been fishing Ponce Inlet for many years and knows where all the best spots are. He prides himself on providing top-quality service to clients of all levels of experience and invites you to join him on the ride of a lifetime!

Your boat for the day is a 24’ Pathfinder center console, powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine. This vessel comes with state-of-the-art navigational instruments, fishing tackle, and safety gear to ensure a successful day on the water. You and 3 other guests will be able to fish at the same time and kids ages 5 and older are welcome aboard.

Capt. Daniel fishes everywhere from the grass flats and creeks of Ponce Inlet, all the way out to the offshore fishing grounds, miles off the coast. Your target species will range from Jack Crevalle to Red Snapper and everything in between. Some of the A-listers you’ll be catching include Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Mangrove Snapper, Cobia, Barracuda, Amberjack, King Mackerel, and Blacktip Shark.

You’ll also be able to try out some fun techniques, including bowfishing, Flounder gigging, and fly fishing. Bowfishing and gigging equipment are provided and included in the price. If you’d like to give fly fishing a go, then just be sure to bring your own fly gear.

For all other types of fishing, you’ll be supplied with top-of-the-line Penn and Shimano rods and reels. Capt. Daniel will also offer to clean and fillet your catch so that it’s ready for the grill once you get home. Just be sure to leave a tip to show appreciation for the hard work!

Your fishing license is covered, so no need to make an extra stop before your trip. Just bring your own snacks and drinks, and be sure to pack some sunscreen as well. Get ready for an exciting adventure and join Rare Breed Charters for an exclusive opportunity to catch big fish, just south of Daytona Beach, FL.

I worked in the corporate world for many years in order to afford the opportunity to hunt and fish. Then, after a brief dinner table conversation with my youngest daughter, she said, “Dad why don’t you hunt and fish for a living? You're good at it!” So here I am.
