The Boat

Tarpon fishing in Daytona Beach with The Fishing Guy

Captain Fred’s boat of choice is the EdgeWater 240IS. It’s design makes it the ideal boat for fishing inshore. However, this model has the capability of navigating offshore as well. The 240IS offers Captain Fred the features he desires in a charter boat: two live wells, locking rod boxes and a shallow-water anchor. As an experienced charter guide, Captain Fred relies on the 240IS to ensure that his clients’ fishing excursions are top-notch.

A few years ago, Capt. Fred used to have a 220is and went along with his friend, outdoors sports writer Dean Travis Clark, on a sea-trial to evaluate the performance and features of the 220IS. The 240IS is just a longer and better version of the 220IS witch was already great.

The Perfect Boat for Chasing Tarpon!
Powered by a 200 HP Yamaha outboard, the boat is just what Captain Fred needs to quickly pursue Tarpon, Cobia and Jack Crevalle along the coast just off the shores of Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach. It can also venture offshore to the rich artificial reefs, habitat for Big Bull Redfish, Bull Black Drum and Amberjacks. Snapper and Grouper also inhabit these reefs including Red Snapper like the one just caught in the picture below! This boat will get you to the fish FAST!
