Spot Stalker Charters - NSB

Spot Stalker Charters runs inshore fishing trips that can yield the likes of Redfish, Black Drum, Snook and Speckled Trout. If you happen to come around New Smyrna Beach, FL, let Capt. Todd take you out on the water.

Captain Todd goes fishing at other locations around Florida. If you can’t make it to New Smyrna Beach - no worries. Just scroll down, and click on the captain’s name to see other available locations and dates.

You will be fishing from a 19’ Spyder flats boat. She is powered by a 115 HP Yamaha engine, and can reach speeds of up to 35 knots. Up to three anglers can come along and experience the fisheries, some of which are acclaimed Redfish habitats worldwide. You can go sight fishing, try out spinning, and light tackle. If you like fishing on the fly, the captain can accommodate you, just let him know in advance.

The boat is equipped with Lowrance GPS and fishfinder, and stores life jackets. You don’t need to be a pro angler to have a good time. Even kids can come along, provided they can handle the rod themselves, meaning youngsters age 7 and above.

The captain will furnish Florida Reels, MHX custom rods, live bait, and lures. Water is served onboard, but you can also bring your own favorite beverage. Make sure to pack light, sun block, a cap, shades, and comfortable clothes. The fishing license is included for saltwater trips only. Note that you can keep your fish, but catch and release is encouraged. Please advise in advance if you intend to keep fish.

There are alternate fishing locations in Port Orange, Ponce Inlet, Edgewater, Oak Hill, Titusville and Port Canaveral, Tomoka Basin.

These fisheries are solid year round. If you want to practice inshore angling, Captain Todd has the skills to help you out. Book a trip, and come catch your fish!

Member since September 2016
I began fishing the flats and backwaters of Florida over 20 years ago. I have lived in Florida now since 2008 and spend over 200 days a year on the water in the Mosquito Lagoon and North Indian River areas. I grew up in the Pacific NW and fishing is some of my earliest memories. After college I went to work for Lamiglas, Inc. as a rod/blank designer. Lamiglas is one of the NW's largest Fishing Rod Manufacturers. After 20 years designing rods for Lamiglas I moved to Florida where I have been designing rod building components and equipment along with rod blanks for Mud Hole Custom Tackle.
