Looking for a weekend adventure?! Dambote Charters is here to help. Captain Murray runs fishing trips year round out of New Smyrna Beach. These adventures are customizable to your skill level and preferences. Your guide will do anything that’s in his power to make the trip just like you imagined it.

Welcome aboard a 25’  Boston Whaler that accommodates up to 5 guests. This brand new center console has been built in 2020 and has the latest Ray Marine navigational electronics. She also features a live bait tank, a private toilet, and outriggers. To help you reach your spot in no time, the boat is powered by twin 200 HP Mercury engines.

The trips cover all kinds of fishing grounds in the area and the list of fish you can catch is very versatile. If you’re staying inshore, you can target Garfish and Tilapia. What makes this trip unusual is that you’re using bows and you start the adventure at night. Nearshore and offshore trips are a mix of bottom fishing and trolling, where you can target Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, Cobia, Grouper, and different types of Snapper.

Capt. Murray covers your fishing license and equipment. After the trip, he’ll also clean your catch, so it’s recommended to bring a cooler for your catch or go straight to a restaurant. You just need some snacks, drinks, and lots of sunscreen.
