Sudden Strike Offshore Adventures

Just booked!

Fishing has this wonderful tendency to be both extremely calming and a total rush of adrenaline. Sudden Strike Offshore Adventures understand this really well and they’ll melt your stress away with some reel-screaming action offshore!

Join Captain Scott Housel aboard his 31’ Contender. She’s a center console, meaning there’s plenty of room to move around for you and up to 6 of your fishing buddies. You won’t be sluggish, as there are twin 300 HP Suzuki engines – you can cruise at a maximum speed of 52 knots.

Capt. Scott will take you after some of the most prestigious and toughest fish off the coast of Florida. Get ready to troll for Kingfish, Sailfish, Blue Marlin, and Mahi Mahi, helped by the onboard outriggers. If you want to troll deeper waters, just use the downriggers provided as well. Anglers who prefer live bait will be happy to know that there’s a live bait well onboard – your baitfish won’t get floppy!

You’ll also hit underwater reefs and wrecks, both natural and man-made, where Groupers and Snappers are bountiful. If you’re a spearfisherman Capt. Scott will take you to red-hot waters, but that’s only for advanced anglers.

The captain will supply you with all the necessary fishing gear, as well as drinks to keep your energy up. There’s no minimum age for kids but parents should contact the captain in advance so he can prepare smaller vests. You are encouraged to release all Billfish, though you can keep it if you want (and if it falls within local regulations).

Book a trip and climb aboard for an unforgettable fishing excursion in the gorgeous offshore waters of Florida with Sudden Strike Offshore Adventures!

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.
