My name is Capt. Freddie Zona the owner and operator of Freddie Z Fishing and Southwind Charters. I have been fishing for a living in the waters of Central Florida since 1994. I enjoy meeting different people and showing them a great time on the water with some awesome fishing. So bring the whole family for a day of making memories and having fun.
We are fortunate to be based out of New Smyrna Beach and fish out of Ponce DeLeon Inlet. Ponce Inlet is located between the worlds most famous Daytona Beach and beautiful New Smyrna Beach. We are located only one hour from Orlando and theme parks.
Fishing out of Ponce Inlet we are blessed with some great versatile fishing. From 5 miles to 50 miles offshore we have numerous wrecks, reefs, ledges and artificial reefs. These structures hold a variety of bottom dwellers such as grouper, snapper, black drum, amberjacks, flounder, cobia, snapper, huge redfish, and plenty of sharks. After all New Smyrna Beach is known for being the shark bite capital of the world. You can also target a variety of Pelagics depending on the season. These include Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, bonito, mahi (sportfish dolphin), wahoo, barracuda, sailfish and an occasional blue marlin.
