Caught Up fishes the Ponce Inlet Jetty, docks, bridges and backcountry in the mangroves.
Inshore fishing is any fishing inside of the tip of the inlet’s bell buoy. Inshore fishing can range from deeper waters of 40-feet to 2-foot skinny shallow waters. The backcountry shallow fishing is more sight fishing around oyster beds and mangroves.
New Smyrna Beach and Daytona Beach are fish magnets because of the inlet. The fish are running along the coast and seek refuge in the inlet after being in the open sea with larger fish chasing them. Different species of migrating fish seek safety in the inlet just to be ambushed by fish already there! You have to think like a fish to catch a fish and that is where Captain Bruno shines.
New Smyrna Beach has fish for everyone. Guests get caught up on trophy fish like tarpon and giant bull reds. Caught Up catches fun fighting fish that even kids can handle. Caught Up also targets species such as cobia, king mackerel, red snapper, reds, snook, trout, and more. Captain Bruno stays caught up on what fish are running to optimize the probability that guests catch fish.
