Wham Bam Charters - 18’

200 Boatyard Street
New Smyrna Beach FL, United States

Wham Bam Charters offer a range of trips, from a 3 hour stint to an 8 hour marathon, targeting some awesome inshore fish like Redfish, Tarpon, Speckled Trout, Flounder, Black Drum and more in the rivers, inshore waters and deep into Mosquito Lagoon, also known as “Redfish Capital of the World”.

You will be fishing aboard an 18 ft Bay Craft flats boat, perfect for navigating the murky skinny waters thanks to its super-shallow draft. It comes with GPS, a live bait tank, and everything you’ll need for some awesome fishing.

Wham Bam Charters are shallow-water specialists, and offer a range of fishing techniques to land the best fish out there. From spinning and drift fishing, to fly fishing and even bow fishing, these guys know all the best spots and have all the right gear to make sure you bring in whatever you’re going for. All their trips include fishing licenses, live bait and drinks as standard, and Captain Brad Kayholm will also be happy to clean and fillet anything you want to take home free of charge.

Awesome time. Highly recommend Brad.  We were total rookies. Bonnet-head shark and 7-8+ other fish.  Threw them all back!  Gonna catch them again next time!  Used the 23 ft boat not the 18footer. Half day trip, back to the beach by noon.

Even though it was windy and chilly it wss a pretty good day of fishing.  Captain Brad kept me on the fish as best he could and was very congenial!

No luck with the fish. Captain tried everything he could,  fish not chewing at all.  After 110% effort we called it quits.  Captain Brad told my son not to worry that we would go out again on him.  First class
