The fish caught on this type of trip are mostly just for sport and and family fun. If you are looking to take home a good catch for eating, you may want to consider our 8 or 10 hour trips for a larger variety of table fare. This trip is great to have fun and spend quality time on the water with your family and friends.

FULL DAY FISHING CHARTER - 8 HOURS

DEPARTS AT 7:00am and RETURNS AT 3:00pm

The Full Day Trip is for the more serious angler who wish catch and take home more edible fish. The typical 8 hour trip will take you out up to 30 miles offshore where you can bottom fish the various wrecks, natural and artificial reefs and other bottom structure for Grouper, Snapper, Amberjack and a variety of other reef dwelling fish.

The extra time also allows you to do some trolling for Dolphin (Mahi-Mahi), Sailfish, Wahoo, King Mackeral and of course the ever present Barracuda. In summary the full day trip gives you the opportunity to put some good fish in the box before turning your attention to more sporting top water action when trolling for more aggressive predators.

FULL DAY FISHING CHARTER - 10 HOURS - MOST POPULAR TRIP

DEPARTS AT 7:00am and RETURNS AT 5:00pm

The full day ten hour trip takes you out up to 45 miles offshore to fish the deep water edges of the gulf stream where a variety of migratory predators live. Most typically a run and gun type of fishing trip, the extra time gives the Captain a greater opportunity to find the best fishing conditions.

Tidal rips, weedlines and floating debris tend to attract schools of bait fish which in turn attract feeding predators like Sailfish, Large Dolphin, Wahoo, King Fish, Cobia and the occasional Atlantic Blue or White Marlin. This area is also known for great deep water bottom action when the current is slow. You can deep drop live or dead baits in approximately 150+ feet of water for larger Grouper, Snapper and rod bending Amberjack which weights up to 100 lbs.
