Have a fun and productive fishing day with Down South Fishing Company. While exploring the inshore, nearshore, and offshore waters of New Smyrna Beach in Florida, you’ll have the chance to catch many interesting fish species as well as enjoy the gorgeous beauty of the area. Captain William McNutt will keep you company and give you any help you need to have a pleasant experience on the water.

Your journey will start on a 26’ Parker cuddy cabin that can accommodate 6 anglers. It runs on a twin 200 HP Suzuki engine and has got quality GPS, fishfinder, and radio systems for safe and efficient navigation. It’s equipped with downriggers, outriggers, and livewell, and there’s an ice-box to store your fish and drinks. On board will also be a first mate to give you any help you may need.

There’s plenty of various fish you can catch. There’s Jack Crevalle, Mahi Mahi, Black Seabass, Red Snapper, Wahoo, and many other interesting species. Using light and heavy tackle, you’ll have the chance to try out different fishing styles, including bottom and deep sea fishing, trolling, spinning, as well as jigging. The boat’s family-friendly so children are welcome to join in. You can choose whether you’ll keep the fish you catch or release it back to the water.

Captain William provides all rods, reels, and terminal tackle, as well as live bait and lures. He’s also got you covered for fishing licenses, so the only thing you’ll need to bring is some food and drinks to stay energized throughout the trip.

Come to New Smyrna Beach and embark on a fishing adventure with Down South Fishing Company!
