There’s absolutely nothing that beats a day on the water! Spend it with Davy Jones Fishing Company! Captain David has been traveling the East Coast of Florida honing his craft since 2001. There are no guarantees when it comes to fishing but Capt. Dave will do his best to put you on the fish of a lifetime! You never know what we’ll come across, dolphins, whales, sea turtles, and even a submarine have been spotted in the past!

You’ll be fishing in a well kept 27’ Sailfish with ample storage and comfort for up to 6 people! The newest and best gear will help you battle the huge variety of inshore and offshore fish in the area. The boat is powered with twin Yamaha Outboard motors for safety and security offshore. You’ll typically cruise around 35 mph and have ample storage space and seating. There’s a toilet, a cooler, ice boxes, phone charging, 50 gallon live well, fresh/salt wash down, and radio.

Catch fish using live, frozen, fresh cut, and artificial bait depending on the targeted species in the area at the time. Inshore trips generally encompass the Ponce Inlet, Halifax River, and Indian River areas. Nearshore trips focus on reefs within 10 miles, while offshore fishing can be as far as 50 miles out to our fishing grounds! The crew also videos and takes photos, so that you can focus on the fish!

Fishing license, sunscreen, water, bait, and gear are all included. Your captain highly recommends bringing lunches/snacks as well as any extra beverages you would like. You’re welcome to bring alcohol and drink responsibly. Wear appropriate clothing, as mornings can be cold, and by afternoon it will feel like a sauna. Rain gear is also a good consideration. Parking at the ramp may cost up to $10 for non-Volusia County residents.

If you do not regularly fish, Capt. David highly recommends dramamine for motion sickness, so you don’t have to cut short your trip.

Capt. David Jones grew up fishing the creeks, rivers, and lakes of Ohio and Kentucky. Following a lifelong dream, he moved to NE Florida in 2001 and began learning his craft from many local legends. For the past 19 years, David has been traveling the state of Florida learning new techniques and becoming an expert at reading the water! "It is so much more than wetting a line. I've found few memories can compare to spending a day on the water with family and friends!"
