Pole Dancer Fishin’ Charters invites you to step aboard and head for some inshore fishing around Ormond Beach! Captain Jeff Patterson has spent his whole life on these waters, so he’ll make sure you have an amazing experience!

You’ll be fishing on board his 18’ Pioneer Bay Sport center console boat that can accommodate up to 4 anglers. It’s powered by a brand new 115 HP Mercury engine that can reach speeds above 34 knots. It has a reliable GPS and fishfinder, meaning you can easily locate your fish and have more time for pure angling.

Capt. Jeff provides your fishing licence, takes care of rods, reels, and tackle, as well as live bait. There’s a live bait well and an icebox on board, so you can safely store your catch. At the end of the trip, he’ll clean and fillet your fish for you. You’ll be using light or heavy tackle, do spinning, jigging or popping, and some drift fishing.

You have a variety of trips to choose from, whether you’re an early starter, novice angler, seasoned angler, or a family with kids. These waters are brimming with Snook, Redfish, Black Drum, and Sheepshead. Flounder and Tarpon are also in abundance, so sharpen your reels!

Bottled water is included in the price, and you can bring some snacks before you head out. Before you head out, make sure you’ve packed some sunscreen, that you’re wearing adequate clothing and a cap and shades, and bring along a camera.

You’re ready to step right into your new inshore fishing adventure with Pole Dancer Fishin’ Charters!

Fishing has always been a huge part of my life. Ever since I was a little kid riding my bicycle miles to get to the water, I've always had a passion for it. I've owned a boat since I was a teenager and get on the water every chance I get.
