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.

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.

We had a great time on the water with captain Scott. Caught some big red snapper, a 32 inch cobia, a variety of other snappers and a ton of little fish.  Scott was great at explaining technique and equipment. When the fish weren’t hitting at the first spot we moved on to find a place where the big ones were.  We had 4 kids in our crew and Scott was great working with them. He even let them collect the grunts all day so they could feed the pelicans when we got back to the dock.  The boys loved that.

Scott is an amazing guy and guide! What a beautiful day we had out on the ocean with the sun on our face, the fresh sea air, a boat full of beautiful fish and wonderful captain! Scott not only is very professional and knowledgeable but very personable and we felt like we had a new friend when we left that day!  If ever in the Daytona area again I will be booking another charter with Scott! Was probably the best New Year’s Eve we have celebrated and all thanks to Scott and his Sudden Strike Adventures!
