Our next Boat of the Month Winner, Lucky Strike Sportfishing Charters, has been an area favorite for a long time and their reputation surely precedes them. One of Ponce Inlet’s longest running sport fishing charters, the Lucky Strike has been racking in the fish for well over 15 years- and its Captain has been doing so for a whole lot longer. One of their qualifying catches last month (featured below) , a 63.7 pound Mahi-Mahi, is just one of the many stunning catches that make up the highlight reels of Captain Damien’s sport fishing memories.

The Lucky Strike is a 38 foot Henriques Express Sport fisherman powered by twin 500 HP Yanmar diesel engines giving you a cruising speed of 22 knots, ensuring that you have plenty of time to fish. Loaded with all the perks from her outriggers down to her bait wells and electronics, she’s sure to give you the experience of a lifetime no matter what kind of fish you are targeting.

Captain Damien Lawler has over 25 years of experience in charter fishing, and has been at the helm of the Lucky Strike for almost 20 years. A United States Coast Guard licensed Captain, New Smyrna Beach local, and King Of the Inlet winner; he has a definite pride in his fishing and cherishes everyday he gets to spend on the water making dreams come true. After recently battling lung cancer and beating the odds he said that all of his catches mean a little bit more to him these days.

While his favorite fishing is blue water trolling for billfish and pelagic’s, he’s always ready to bottom fish and has boxed countless mount worthy grouper for his clients over the years. Despite landing an absolute stud Mahi this month, Captain Damien stays humble and insists the great catch of his life is being able to wake up and spend another day out on the water.

Available Trips Aboard the Lucky Strike Include: 4/6/8 HR Offshore Trips & 10/12 HR Sportfishing Trips.
