Randy Kraft

Member since February 2016 New Smyrna Beach, United States
Background
Captain Randy Kraft is a true local – he was born and raised in Florida and has spent his entire life fishing the waters of the Sunshine State. He started his life outdoors by swimming with alligators in ponds and hanging out with Sharks on the surf. Capt. Randy is a full-time captain and he's incredibly passionate about passing on his knowledge and love of nature and the outdoors to everyone he meets. He has great respect for the wildlife and loves explaining what's going on in the water and the local history. Captain Randy runs two different boats and can accommodate larger groups.
Techniques
I use many different fishing techniques and technology and enjoy them all to find and catch all types of fish for all the seasons of the year.
