Summertime is here, and the fishing action is in full swing in Southeast Volusia’s backwaters. The abundant bite shows no signs of slowing down. From big snook at the inlet to early tarpon hook-ups and a continuous redfish bite, our lively beach town offers some of the finest fishing opportunities in the world. Among the roster of exceptional guides, Captain Robert McGhee stands out as one of the best and a long-time friend of mine.

With over 25 years of experience fishing the local waters, Bobby is an expert at reeling in trophy-sized fish while ensuring a fun time for his clients and friends. He is deeply passionate about introducing youth to the joys of fishing and regularly takes out special needs anglers, too.

Bobby has been on a hot streak over the past two weeks, with stellar catches to his name. He’s been landing solid tarpon at the inlet and upper slop, along with impressive over-slot-sized snook. Whether you prefer night charters, morning outings or afternoon trips, Bobby can tailor the experience to match the weather, tides and your personal preferences.

Until next time… Cast ’em, hook ’em, and reel ’em in!
