Native Sons Fishing Guides, Central Florida & Indian River Lagoon Fishing Charters

Exciting stuff in the works at Native Sons

We’ve got an exciting site redesign in the works!

Major changes are being made to reflect the current direction of our charter business and we are anxious to display and promote more prominently our wonderful sponsors.  This will be apparent in the next several weeks.

We are vastly expanding our video library on the site to include a number of TV shows and YouTube clips developed by Peter over the past few years. By the way, if you have not connected with Capt. Peter’s Facebook or Instagram accounts, we strongly suggest you check them out as he has done a masterful job of providing exciting, fresh and relevant submissions. Thanks to Boldwater Innovations for implementing our website changes.

Another major change underway currently is the repowering and refitting of Capt. Rocky’s boat, the ‘Flat Broke’. When this project is finally complete, Rocky’s boat will feature state-of-the-art equipment – new motor, iPilot trolling motor and anchoring system, Garmin fishfinder with Sidevu, Clearvu sonar. These changes will greatly assist Rocky in fishing deeper and swifter water including Port Canaveral, Sebastian Inlet and Fort Pierce Inlet as well as the shallow flats of the Indian River Lagoon system. Thanks to Tom at Merritt Island West Marine and Steve at Boathouse Discount Marine of Melbourne for assisting in the repowering.

Thank you for your patience … please check back soon!
