Come Fish Ponce Inlet!!!   

Located between Daytona Beach and New Smyrna Beach.  

​Tug Of War charters invites you to join Captain Randy Kraft on the waters of Ponce Inlet, Florida. The charter serves New Smyrna Beach, Daytona Beach, Ponce Inlet, Edgewater, and the surrounding areas. Captain Randy provides unique fishing charter experiences for anglers of all skills and ages.

Fishing in Ponce Inlet is good throughout the year, with Redfish and Speckled Trout being around all the time, moving through the area to spawn and feed. The Black Drum you can catch here is absolutely huge; you can lure them with Shrimp as their food of choice. The jetties and bridges of Ponce inlet are also home to Snook, Mangrove Snapper, a variety of Sharks, Sheepshead, Cobia, and Tarpon, among other species.

Captain Randy will take you fishing on his 22’ Offshore Bay boat originally built in 2005, and restored in 2017. Powered by brand new 200 HP 2017 Suzuki engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots, this boat is a beast on the water. The boat also has a wireless trolling motor which allows it to access the very shallow parts; a GPS and a fishfinder used to locate the best fishing spots, a fighting chair, safety equipment, a livewell, and an icebox for the catch.

Tug Of War will provide you with quality fishing gear such as Penn International reels, rods, tackle, lures, and live bait in the form of Shrimp and Fall Mullet. You will have a fishing license and drinks included, and once you return to the dock, your catch can be processed by Captain Randy.

If you are ready to experience the excitement and fun of fishing in Ponce Inlet, you can rest assured full-time guide, Captain Randy Kraft will provide you with an unparalleled fishing charter experience!



TUG OF WAR CHARTERS

PONCE INLET 

INSHORE AND NEARSHORE SALTWATER FISHING

Fishing Charter Servicing ​

Orlando, Daytona Beach, New Smyrna Beach, Cocoa Beach, Mosquito Lagoon and Ponce Inlet  


INCLUDED A fun-loving, experienced  USCG licensed Captain.  Fishing with Captain Randy Kraft includes fishing licenses for every angler aboard and any required permits. Fishing rods and reels, live & artificial bait, water, ice, sun block and onboard coolers are provided.   If you plan on keeping fish to eat, I will clean and bag for your ride home.  I will have a digital camera on board and will take and email you your pictures.​

WHAT TO BRING   First and foremost, bring a positive attitude for a GREAT day of fishing!   The Captain recommends you bring a hat, a good pair of polarized sunglasses, a camera of your own, lunch and any beverages other than water (no glass bottles).  If you bring alcohol, responsible drinking is our policy.  I will fillet any legal catch and put it in a gallon size zip lock bag, bring a small hand cooler to keep it cold for your ride home.   It is recommended that you dress in layers, the mornings always start out cooler, especially when we are motoring. Bring a raincoat if the forecast calls for any rain.

WEATHER   As a rule, I don't cancel due to the weather.  Of course, if there is a hurricane or monsoon I will. Florida weather often changes and the weatherman is often wrong!  If we show up at the dock, and you are not comfortable with the conditions, this is your call.​

GIFT CERTIFICATES AVAILABLE Great for birthdays, holidays and ANY occasion.
