Reel-Axing Fishing Charters

Reel-Axing Fishing Charters offers exciting adventures for anglers of all experience levels. You’ll have a chance to explore the diverse waters of Ponce Inlet and Port Orange, catch fish, and relax under the Florida sun in a state-of-the-art fishing boat.

Captain John Kyp is a US Coast Guard captain with decades of experience fishing Florida’s east coast. He’s confident in his ability to put you on fish and invites you to join him on a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Prices do not include tips.

Your boat for the day is a 26’ Trophy Pro center console equipped with twin 150 HP Suzuki 4-stroke engines capable of getting you to the best fishing spots in no time. She’s also outfitted with top-quality fishing gear, safety equipment, and navigational electronics. The boat accommodates 5 guests, including children ages 5 and up.

Inshore trips will have you fishing around jetties and other structures, targeting Redfish, Black Drum, Mangrove Snapper, and Goliath Grouper. Nearshore trips will take you a little further out to catch the likes of Black Seabass, Cobia, Kingfish, and various Shark species.

You can also have Capt. John take you offshore, where you’ll combine a bit of trolling and bottom fishing to target big game species. Out here, you’ll encounter Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Red Snapper, and many other prized catches. No matter which trip you choose, Capt. John will customize your trip based on your preferences and do his best to put you on big fish.

Top-of-the-line Penn and Shimano gear as well as your fishing license are included. Feel free to bring snacks and drinks, pack some sunscreen, a hat, and sunglasses, and the rest will be taken care of. Join Reel-Axing Fishing Adventures and get ready for an unforgettable day of fishing!

Angler's Choice
The Angler's Choice Award is given to listings that consistently deliver a high-quality service and earn great reviews from customers.
I started fishing as soon as I could hold a rod and reel. I began fishing at Kyp's Fish Camp on Lake Beresford in DeLand, FL. Then, I quickly started fishing off the beaches and piers in saltwater. Once I got a taste of the big bluewater fish as a kid, I was hooked. I love the water, it's very relaxing and easy to clear your head with the fresh scent of saltwater.
