Captain Scott Housel, owner & operator of Sudden Strike Offshore Adventures LLC, is a USCG licensed 100 Ton Master Captain who has been fishing & diving the waters out of Ponce Inlet since 1990. He has competed in numerous offshore fishing tournaments, winning the Inaugural Fish Stock Tournament in 2003 (formally the Striker).
The Sudden Strike is a 31’ Contender powered by twin 300 HP Suzuki’s. The boat has the speed to get to the fishing grounds quickly and provides spacious room for all of your offshore fishing adventures. Rest assured, even larger groups of 6 can all bottom fish at the same time without getting tangled up.
Captain Scott’s favorite fishing style is bottom fishing because anglers stay engaged and the action is non-stop on most days. During April & May when the Mahi are offshore trolling can provide some consistent action, but sometimes it takes a great deal of patience and perseverance to land a fish like the solid bull Mahi that qualified him for his win this month.

More From the Captain:
“My father and grandfather first took me fishing when I was 5 years old, and I’ve been hooked ever since. Over the years I have developed a passion and appreciation for the ocean and all the wonders it has to offer. I have caught monster fish, swam with wild dolphins, turtles, sharks and majestic Manta Rays, but most importantly I have experiences and memories that will never be forgotten. Allow me to share my passion with you, your family and friends and help you create the memories that will last a life time.”
