Daytona Beach Charters

Daytona Beach Charters is run by Captain Michael, who has 20 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.

Reel in delicious Snapper and Flounder from the bottom, jig for the area’s renowned Redfish, Bluefish, and Whiting, or cast for some Seatrout or Black Drum. Capt. Michael prefers live shrimp, cut shrimp or mullet to any artificial lures. He will do everything he can to make your trip bountiful.

Capt. Michael commands a 22’ Skeeter boat that is powered by a Yamaha 200 HP 4-stroke engine and is large enough to comfortably accommodate up to 6 guests. It is equipped with a poling platform, two baitwells, Power-Pole anchor, holders for trolling rods, two casting seats, a flat casting deck, and an assortment of navigational/fishfinding electronics. Shimano spinning rods are the weapon of choice for this skipper.

Fishing licenses are provided by the Captain for everyone onboard 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! We have always caught fish- just can't promise what species. 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. My Charter License covers your Fishing License -so no worries. Pics are of actual clients with their catch. Gratuity appreciated but not required. Charters are usually 8-12, 1-5 or 6-10pm.
