Into the Blue

Captain Brandon Simmons

My name is Brandon Simmons. Growing up in Merritt Island on the Florida Space Coast, I have been fishing my entire life. I've fished the back waters of the Indian River, Banana River, and the world famous Mosquito Lagoon for Redfish Trout, Tarpon and Snook. I have spent the last six years charter fishing in the Florida Keys and taking boats to the Bahamas. The versatility of the Yellowfin 26 Hybrid allows for a range of fishing from offshore fishing for Tuna, Mahi Mahi and Swordfish to deep dropping for Tilefish, Barrelfish and Queen Snappers. We can also come into the reef and the reef's edge to catch a variety of Snappers or the elusive Sailfish, which happens to be my favorite fish.

But the fun doesn’t stop there, the new 26 Hybrid can also access the beautiful Florida Everglades and Florida Bay, where we can stalk Snook, Tarpon and Redfish, or bounce around to some bay wrecks that will hold goliath Groupers the size of a Volkswagen beetle, schools of Cobia and plenty of Sharks to get that drag screaming. This boat and captain are geared up for whatever style of fishing is best suited for you and your family

About the Boat

Into the Blue is the ideal family fishing charter, offering a smooth ride and shade. With the freedom to fish the reef or in the sheltered backcountry, Into the Blue can cater to anglers of every skill and interest level.

Into the Blue drafts only 16'' of water fully loaded down, which allows you to get into the skinny waters of the backcountry. At the same time, the hull design offers great stability and a comfortable ride on a long run to the reef, the Everglades or a deep Gulf wreck.

Our Florida Keys fishing charter is outfitted with top-of-the line electronics and both fly and spin fishing gear. The boat is also equipped with dual, two-tournament live wells to keep the bait healthy for long days on the water. There is also plenty of dry storage to keep your belongings safe and dry even in the wettest conditions.
