Finn-Addict-Fishing is based out of Port Orange, Florida, serving the Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach areas. They are dedicated to providing guests with a fishing adventure of a lifetime. Captain Chris says he’s been fishing forever. He ran an offshore charter company in the past, then went into commercial fishing, before finally returning to the charter business, which is his first love.

Capt. Chris will take you out on his 36’ Yellowfin center console boat powered by twin 350 HP Yamaha engines, with a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots. This speed means that you will get to the offshore grounds very quickly and not waste any time. The boat is fully equipped with the necessary safety and electronic equipment such as life vests and a fishfinder.

The boat also has a wide T-top to provide shade under the hot Floridian sun, a toilet for your convenience, and plenty of cushioned seating areas so you can relax after a fight with some of the monster specimens you might encounter.

You can target a variety of fish here depending on the season, but this being Florida, something is always lurking below the blue line. Capt. Chris can put you on Red Snapper, Wahoo, King Mackerel, Cobia, Amberjack, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Blue Marlin, and Blackfin Tuna. He will provide you with the fishing gear, live bait, downriggers, and centerriggers which will maximize your chances.

Fish cleaning is available at the end of your trip at an extra cost, so bring a cooler if you plan to keep your catch and take it home for dinner. You are welcome to bring food and drinks for the day.

What are you waiting for? Book a trip with Finn-Addict-Fishing and explore the beautiful waters of Florida!
