Daytona Beach Charters is run by Captain Michael, who has 15 years of experience fishing in the waters of the Shark Bite Capital of the World. Setting off from Ponce Inlet, Mike loves sweeping the surrounding nearshore and inshore areas, reeling in delicious Snapper and Flounder from the bottom, jigging for the area’s renowned Redfish, Bluefish and Whiting, or casting for some Sea Trout or Black Drum. Preferring live shrimp, cut shrimp or mullet to any artificial lures, this seasoned angler will do everything he can to make your trip bountiful.

Capt. Michael commandeers a 19’ Hewes Redfisher boat that is powered by a Yamaha 130HP two-stroke engine, and is large enough to comfortably accommodate up to 3 anglers. It is equipped with a poling platform, two baitwells, Power-Pole anchor, holders for trolling rods, a casting seat, a flat casting deck, and an assortment of navigational/fishfinding electronics. Shimano spinning rods are the weapon of choice for this skipper.

Fishing licences are obligatory for all occupants of the boat aged over 16 (if you’ve got youngsters, they’re very welcome on board as well) and are provided by the Captain for your convenience, along with full insurance. As far as your catch goes, you get to keep whatever you reel in (as long as it falls within the fishing regulations) and bring it home for dinner, neatly filleted and wrapped up. Tipping is extra.

I want to help you catch fish like the locals do! I specialize on whatever is running recently especially Redfish, Black Drum and Snapper.. Usually we fish Inshore with an occasional Near Shore opportunity. I possess an USCG 100 Ton Master Captains License #167899. I do morning charters for 4 hours for a flat fee of $275 for 2 or $295 for up to 3 anglers. No extra fees. My Charter License covers your Fishing License -so no worries. Pics are of actual clients with their catch. Check my website and if you like what you see-I might be the charter for you. I'll gladly fillet your catch and place in zip-lock bags for your consumption. Gratuity appreciated but not required.

I booked a 1/2 DAY deep sea fishing trip as a birthday gift for my 10 year old son. I wanted to do something memorable because he’s had a rough year and a half, due to his dad’s/my husband’s sudden and unexpected death followed a few months later by my mom, his grandma, the only surviving grandparent he had at the time.
Captain Mike formed an almost instant bond with my son, and set us both at ease immediately. He was knowledgeable,  informative and well-experienced.
Captain Mike guided us through our trip allowing my son to experience deep sea fishing “hands-on” while taking into account our safety and well-being.
The trip far exceeded our expectations, for these reasons and more.
I would recommend this experience to anyone, especially with Captain Mike at the helm!

Had a great day with my son Rory on this half day trip. Water conditions were not optimal, but Captain Mike made the most of it, thanks to his expert kowledge of these waters. Ended the day with a decent catch of Mangrove snappers and had a terrific all around experience.
