Captain Brad’s Family Fishing Experience

“My brother, Jeff, who I don’t get to see often, stayed an extra day to explore what New Smyrna Inshore Fishing had to offer. It was going to be a quick trip before they had to head home. When you don’t have much time, getting out during first light is essential.

I had not been out in a few days so we wanted to hit some spots to see what was happening. The first spot was not very productive with a few catfish eating up the baits. After several catches, it was time to move onto another location. When you explore New Smyrna Fishing, you are after that trophy fish. Sail cats may be fun to reel in but not our desired species. My 6-year-old nephew
Brindle from Pennsylvania caught his biggest fish ever. It was a sail cat. He loved the battle and gave him a lot of joy. It is moments like this that make for a great day of fishing. Of course, he wanted to take a photo with his fish. Grandpa Rick was waiting on the front of the boat. Grandpa says “Brindle, don’t drop that it will poke you” and then what happens, it slips out of his little hands and stabs Grandpa in the leg. The timing was absolutely perfect and quite hilarious. So with bloodshed and a numb leg, we moved on.

You can catch a wide variety of species. Ultimately, when you fish on my vessel, we are after a bull redfish.

It was an absolutely fantastic day on the water. My brother and Brindle were in heaven landing 4 out of 6 over 40″ redfish. After the bite slowed I wanted to check a spot where we caught drum a year ago.

After 15 minutes of no bites I said “It was to warm still and they just have not moved in quite yet.” Well, as a fishing Captain, I should have known to be more patient. Just shortly after, a school of Black Drum moved in and was red hot for about 25 minutes. We landed multiple Black Drum. It was an exciting bite with several double hook-ups along with missed strikes and encounters. Just as fast as it started, it turned right off.

Young kids are by far the hardest to please. As time was approaching to head in, Brindle kept saying how much he wanted to catch a redfish. I had an idea on where some might be with these conditions and timing. In just a few minutes, the drag started screaming.

After a strong and long battle, Brindles wish was granted. He caught his first Redfish. Another impressive moment was how he handled the fish all by himself, especially at the age of 6. It seems like he may be a natural fisherman, traits that definitely came from me, not my brother Jeff. I mentioned this to my family and we all got a good laugh in.

Brindle was absolutely fascinated with the shape and characteristics of the fish. We threw on a pair of sunglasses on the fish to style him up. Jeff landed another redfish and it was time to head in.

It is always a rewarding experience to have all your family on board and to explore some of the best inshore fishing in the state. There truly is nothing like this and moments like these are the ones our family doesn’t forget.

One of my goals as a fishing captain is to provide you with this experience. To help get your family addicted on the pursuit of catching fish.
