The Captain & Boat

About the Captain

Captain Ron Hatcher, a native fishing guide of Volusia County, picked up his first rod and reel at age seven and has had saltwater coursing through his veins ever since. He has been fishing Ponce Inlet, the Halifax River and Mosquito Lagoon since his childhood and is one of the most knowledgeable fishing guides along the Volusia and Brevard Coast, Capt. Ron observes the birds, baitfish and telltale signs of feeding fish and guides you to the perfect spot.

The Boat
A 2014 22' Skeeter Tunnel Hull. You won't be crowded on this boat. Plenty of comfortable seating, storage and fishing room for 4 or more. Powered by a 2014 Yamaha 200 HP SHO, this super high output 4 stroke motor is quick and quiet. With its unique tunnel hull design, getting in and out of the back bays and skinny water is a breeze. Equipped with a Humminbird 1199 side sonar and a Minn Kota I Pilot, finding the fish and staying on them is what this system is designed for.
