Top Fishing Charters in Port Orange


For incredible year-round fishing, hop aboard a Port Orange fishing charter. Located on Florida’s self-proclaimed “Fun Coast,” this fishing hotspot offers up diverse angling adventures from the Halifax River, all the way to the Atlantic’s deep waters. Whether you’re after delicious inshore fish or hard fighting pelagic species, Port Orange has you covered!

The Halifax River’s shallow waters are home to enough Redfish, Trout, and Sheepshead to keep any inshore angler happy. Come summertime, you can also expect to battle it out with monster Tarpon! For Grouper, Snapper, and Kingfish, head out from Ponce Inlet, where productive reefs and wrecks await nearby.

If you’re looking to reel in a monster, you’ll want to take advantage of the Port Orange’s proximity to the Gulf Stream. Once you’re there, it’s all about hooking into majestic Marlin and Sailfish or delicious Tuna and Mahi Mahi.

If you’re planning on heading offshore, leave early and opt for a full day or extended full day trip. For a more laid-back option, a half day of fishing in the Halifax River does the trick. A Tarpon trip deserves as many hours on the water as you can spare – just be sure to book these popular trips early to avoid disappointment.

Most charters depart from boat ramps along Dunlawton Bridge, where you can find easy access to both the Halifax River and the Gulf Stream. There are also plenty of shops nearby where you can stock up on supplies for your trip.

Rules & Regulations

If you’re fishing aboard a saltwater charter in Florida, the captain covers your licenses. Strict catch and release policies apply to certain species and open seasons vary, so it’s best to head out with an experienced captain.

January

It’s a time for new beginnings, so why not get hooked on fishing? The inshore waters are full of Redfish, Drum, Trout, and Sheepshead just calling your name.

 

February

Nearshore fishing is starting to warm up so hit the reefs and wrecks out in the Atlantic and target Kingfish, Grouper, and Snapper as you look for a tasty treat to take home.

 
March

The weather and waters are warming up, so head offshore for a thrilling experience. Catch bait on your way out before battling it out with monster Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, and more.

 
April

Cobia make their way along the east coast, following the Gulf Stream’s jet. They’ll be chasing the numerous manta rays so keep an eye out for these impressive beasts and get your fish on.

 
May

Peak season is here, so expect thrilling fishing wherever you go. Target pelagics offshore, hit the bottom fish along the reefs, or battle it out with stunning inshore creatures in the River. 

 
June

The Gulf Stream is slightly closer, so you won’t need to head too far offshore for rod-bending action. Go after the catch of a lifetime as you target Mahi Mahi, Marlin, Sailfish, and more.

 
July

Dodge the afternoon storms and get out early to make the most of your trip. Head out to the nearshore reefs and wrecks for the best fishing. You may even catch a huge Shark!

 

August

Don’t let the summer get away from you. The nearshore season is coming to an end, so get out on the water one last time and fill the boat with delicious reef fish. 

 
September

After the highs of summer, the water is at its hottest – and so is the fishing! Tarpon will make their way inshore, so you’ll get to test your skills against the “Silver King.”

 

 

October

Head offshore and catch the last of the pelagics as they make their way past Florida’s east coast. Monster Sharks, delicious Mahi Mahi, and strong Kingfish will be the order of the day.

 
November

It’s all about the Kingfish in the Gulf Stream during November. Head out from Ponce Inlet and get to the water’s deepest spots where you’ll troll for this popular creature.

 
December

Everyone wants that homey feeling as the year draws to a close. The best fishing is on the Halifax River. Target inshore species and get the family together for a delicious dinner.

It was a great day! Even with it being a little rough, Captain Brian put us on the meat and we came home with three beautiful King Mackerel! His Mate Jacob filleted them and cut them into steaks and we now have a freezer full of delicious fish. If I could take this survey twice I would, I can't recommend them enough.

I felt like he truly wanted us to enjoy our trip and did everything to make it that way. I will definitely be back for more. Thank you Capt.

Our trip was a full day trip both trolling for big game fish as well as deep sea fishing. The trolling wasn’t productive so we deep sea fished, caught some huge red snappers, too bad they weren’t in season, and a nice mess of assorted good eating fish. It was a fun day, great Captain and mate!
