Strippin Lips Fishing Charters

2055 North Beach Street
Ormond Beach FL, United States

Fish the flats and backcountry for a wide variety of delicious and rewarding inshore species with Captain Dave of Strippin Lips Charters.  From the Backwaters of Ormond Beach to Ponce Inlet, down to World Famous Mosquito Lagoon, we’ll go were the fish are. Fishing aboard a 17 ft Pathfinder poling skiff, you will have access to areas other boats can’t get to, giving you the upper hand when looking to catch a trophy fish in Ormond Beach, Ponce Inlet, or World Famous Mosquito Lagoon.

The boat is fully equipped for fishing, with trim tabs for a more comfortable and fuel efficient ride and a Stiffy push pole to allow the captain to guide you silently through the area’s shallow waterways. There is also a 70 lbs thrust autopilot trolling motor fitted to the boat, as well as a six foot Powerpole anchoring system, essential for the most effective inshore fishing. With a draft of just five inches, this boat is ideal for getting to the shallowest of waters.

The captain will happily design your trip to fit in with your desires, whether you want to fish the hidden shallow waterways for Redfish, Snook, Trout, and Flounder, hit the Halifax river to fish the docks, sandbars, drop offs, and small bays, try your luck on the fly, or fish slightly further out for Tarpon. His excellent knowledge of the area and enthusiastic attitude will make sure this is a fishing trip to remember.

About the Captain

David Caruthers
Ormond Beach, Florida, United States
Member since April 2016
Captain David is a native Floridian who comes from a family of people who are passionate about spending time on the water. Over the years he has explored his love of the water, spending many years fishing offshore from a 57 ft sportfisher, as well as learning everything he can about the inshore waterways from Tomoka State Park to the Mosquito Lagoon first from a kayak, and then from a poling skiff. Nowadays he enjoys sharing his love both for inshore fishing and fishing offshore with his clients aboard his two boats, a 17 ft Pathfinder and a 22 ft Andros.

Capt Dave was very knowledgeable of the waterways and worked hard to find us fish.  Fishing was slow but that wasn’t for lack effort on Capt Dave’s part- other fisherman reported same conditions. We landed a few reds, shnook and a lady fish, but had a great day on the water.  You can’t beat the experience for the price.  We might condier the larger boat for a future trip.

Captain Dave treated my father-in-law, uncle, and I to the best fishing day either of us had ever had. We each caught numerous fish, including two 25 lb plus bull redfish, and thoroughly enjoyed our time on the water with Captain Dave. I would recommend a trip with Captain Dave and his Strippin Lips charters to anyone who visits the Daytona area. Captain Dave is knowledgeable, friendly, and one of the most professional Captains I have ever associated with.
