Come aboard Captain Brad’s brand new 18 ft Beavertail for a quality fishing experience in the inshore area around New Smyrna Beach. The prime location of the charter means it is easy to travel to some of the most popular fishing spots and beautiful ecosystems Florida has to offer, including the Mosquito Lagoon, Banana River, the Indian River and Spruce Creek for bountiful backwater and inshore fishing opportunities.                   
                                   
Captain Brad can’t wait to show you his new boat. Its 90HP Suzuki engine can take up to 3 people around the area in comfort. Equipped with top-of-the-line gear, the boat is fitted with a spacious live well for your bait, which is particularly important for Captain Brad, who makes it his policy never to use dead or frozen bait.

Brad’s considerable fishing experience in the area will make any trip diverse and interesting. He can show you how to work the bait pods around the oyster bars to find huge game fish, as well as practicing sight fishing in the flats and working the docks and structures to find whatever might be lurking underneath the waters and in the shadows.

Brad uses a variety of techniques depending on the season and has honed his trade to the point that he catches big game fish in and out of season. He finds popping techniques very effective for topwater fishing and always uses the best quality artificial topwater lures. He uses Shimano gear for light tackle spin fishing for Trout and other species.

As someone who is always aware of the tide tables, moon phases, peak fishing times and barometric pressure, Brad can put you in the best place to catch what you’re after. His experience and customer service mean his customers come back to fish with him time and again.

Captain Brad was born and grew up on a river and was always told by his friends that he should be a captain. He has now been fishing the Florida waters professionally for 17 years around areas such as the world-famous Mosquito Lagoon, the coast line running from Daytona to New Smyrna beach, and offshore deep fishing up to 40 miles. For the last 11 years he has devoted himself full-time to offering guided charters, doing what he loves. He uses all the knowledge he has learnt over the years to make sure you're in with the best possible chance of finding fish.
