If you’re looking to explore the prolific waters of New Smyrna Beach, make sure that you cast off alongside Knot Tide Right Charters! You’ll be guided by Captain Dusty Cartrette, who is a native of the area. He spent his youth fishing these winding mangrove creeks and oyster-lined bays, and knows exactly where to take you to get you on fish.
Whether you’re looking to have a memorable experience with your family, or are an experienced angler wanting to check off some of those bucket list fish, Capt. Dusty will go the extra mile to cater your trip to suit your needs.
He loves sharing the knowledge he has acquired of this fishery, as well as the history of the area, so you’ll be treated to a true local-style adventure!
You’ll be fishing from your captain’s 21’ Sea Pro bay boat, perfectly built to cruise these inshore and nearshore waters. She can accommodate up to 4 guests, and is decked out with top-quality navigational and safety gear. There’s also a wireless trolling motor, which will come in handy when you’re sight fishing the shallows for some Bull Reds!
Depending on the adventure you opt for, you’ll have the chance to target a huge variety of Floridian-famous fish. Capt. Dusty runs inshore trips that’ll see you exploring shallow inlets and creeks, targeting species such as Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, Flounder, Snook, and Jack Crevalle. You may even have the chance to battle the mighty “Silver King,” Tarpon.
If you want to travel slightly further from shore, your captain will take you to the reefs around 30 miles out. Here, you’ll cast your rod for species such as Triggerfish, Snapper and Grouper, and Cobia. You can choose to mix this up with some trolling, too, which will give you the chance to hook King Mackerel and hard-fighting Mahi Mahi,
Your trip includes all the fishing gear you need, as well as a license. Cast off with Knot Tide Right Charters for a first-class Floridian fishing adventure!
