Captain Scott Housel is the owner and operator of Sudden Strike Offshore Adventures LLC.  Captain Scott is a tournament-winning fisherman, who has been fishing these waters since 1989, and has his 100-ton USCG Captain’s License.

Sudden Strike is a 31’ Contender powered by twin 250hp Yamaha 4 stroke outboards and is equipped with every bell and whistle when it comes to electronics, fish finding sonar, and safety equipment.  The 31” Contender was designed by fishermen for fishermen and has developed the reputation as being one of the premier fishing platforms in the tournament fishing world. 
This 31’ Contender has 2 large live wells designed to keep your bait alive and full of spunk for bottom fishing, equipped with outriggers allowing for hours of trolling, 4 fish boxes providing over 1300 quarts of fish and ice storage.  The twin 250’s allow us to get to the fishing grounds in a hurry so we spend more time fishing and less time riding.

Because Capt. Scott spends several days each week spear fishing, he can see firsthand where the fish are and what various bottom structures actually look like.  He also maintains good relationships with other commercial fishermen and captains which provides an excellent opportunity to exchange ideas and notes on recent fishing patterns.

If you are serious about fishing or would like to introduce your family to a new experience, please give us a call.  We look forward to helping you make the memories of a life time.

About the Captain

I started fishing when I was 5 years old. In 1989 I moved to Central Florida to attend Stetson University, became a certified scuba diver, and have been diving and fishing out of Ponce Inlet ever since. Although I have landed plenty of monsters, I now find more enjoyement helping others experience the thrill of landing the fish of a lifetime.

Would recommend to anyone. Captain Scott was great! Best fishing experience my family has had. Have been on at least 5 prior charters and his was by far the best.

An A+ custom fishing trip. Scott provided tactful instruction on fishing techniques while allowing us to decide what we wanted to do. He went the Extra mile to put us on the fish and helped us arrange a evening meal of our days catch- plenty of bait caught multiple species, and landed some really big snapper too. Hooked some monsters we just couldn’t land but we regret nothing we will recommend to friends and we will book again

Captain Scott IS the best captain to go out with. He determines what you want out of your trip and does everything in his means to make that happen. He is great with the experienced and inexperienced fisherman. Scott is knowledgeable, patient, and easygoing. Furthermore, he is a great teacher; we learned so much while out with him. Scott took us to places where the fish were biting and everyone caught multiple fish! An added bonus is that Scott is not a clock watcher. He is more concerned about the experience. Best fishing trip ever!!!! Thanks so much Scott! We will be back!
