We're off to the Southern side of the inlet this edition, and are stoked to bring you our next vessel highlight! Docked at River Deck Marina in New Smyrna Beach in a sweet spot nestled off of Riverside Drive, you will find Caught Up Fishing Charters. Whether you're looking to fish the intracoastal or head offshore, Captain Brian has the perfect set up to meet all of your needs. Just as the fall season brings a much needed break from scorching summer temperatures; our inshore fishing starts to really heat up. This time of year is well known for offering a host of opportunistic catches such as red fish, tarpon, snook & flounder.
Captain Brian Imbrunone began his charter career in Islamorada, the undisputed world capital of sport fishing. Spending his first couple of years as a Captain in the Keys granted him the opportunity to learn everything there was about the business in its hub, only adding to the knowledge he has accumulated after being an avid fisherman all of his life. After Hurricane Irma in 2017, he made the move to back home to New Smyrna Beach to start his own company with the help and guidance of area Captain Fred 'Frenchy', appropriately known as 'The Fishing Guy'. Captain Brian has been enjoying the vibe ever since. Get 'Caught Up' on this 243 Everglades Center Console, powered by a brand new 300 horsepower Yamaha outboard engine. Recently upgraded, this vessel features a t-top for the much needed shade breaks, new RayMarine electronics, as well as new upholstery & ceramic coating to ensure all guests are as comfortable as possible. She is able to accommodate up to four anglers with 2 extra guests, for a total of 6 passengers.
Captain Brian attributes his business motto to the actuality of the sport, a hobby that requires you stay 'caught up' on all the changing influencers. From tides & pressures; all the way to finicky eaters & the preferred bait of the day, the fishing conditions are always changing and he enjoys the challenges it offers him daily. Being able to teach anglers how to target and land their respective 'fish of a lifetime' is something that is incredibly rewarding to him as a whole. In the spring you can find him enjoying his absolute favorite pastime, sight fishing for cobia that migrate up the coastline with giant manta-rays. He notes that for him it's like an adult Easter egg hunt, finding the fish and making the perfect cast that results in success is an adrenaline rush second to none. In the summer he is usually offshore, trolling & bottom fishing to fill the box with meat for each and every guest that steps aboard.
Notably the Ponce Inlet area boasts a wide range of highly sought after offshore catches such as mahi, tuna, grouper, cobia, snapper, sailfish and many more! You are sure to enjoy yourself no matter the time of year or type of fishing you wish to do while you get all Caught Up!
