trip Summary

We will depart from the dock in the morning (or afternoon) and head out in to the Gulf of Mexico. First we will catch our live bait for the day. Live bait can also be purchased if you do no want to catch it, although it can be very fun and rewarding part of the trip (especially for kids!) From there, depending on the duration of trip you have chosen, we will venture out to either near shore (4 to 6 hour) or offshore spots (8 to 10 hour). Relax in our large air conditioned cabin while we cruise out to our first fishing spot. We usually mix up the fishing between trolling and bottom fishing giving more bottom fishing time to longer trips. Our experienced deckhand will show you everything you need to know and can help you with any questions you have. The fish that we go after on the day of your charter is subject to what is in season at that time. While bottom fishing we target reef fish such as Snapper, Grouper, Trigger Fish, Amberjack, etc. While trolling we target Wahoo, King Mackerel, Mahi Mahi, Tuna, etc. On our way back to the dock, you can relax in the air conditioned cabin or even take a nap on one of our three beds. Once we arrive at the dock the deckhand will clean, ice and pack your catch into your cooler for you to take home. Many restaurants offer a "you hook it, we cook it" deal. We will gladly pack a separate bag for you if you wish to do that. Please remember that your crew works very hard before, during, and after the trip. Tipping 15% or more of the charter price is customary.

“We had a group of 5 that went on a 5 hour day trip with Captain Matt. We all caught fish and had a great time! The boat was much nicer than the usual boats we charter so we were very comfortable while being driven to each of the fishing spots. Captain Matt and our mate Mike were very knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. I would definitely recommend this service and will be booking them again soon.”

By far the best fishing experience I have ever been on! Booking was easy, simple and fast. Group of us (4) booked half day trip. I have been on a several charter fishing trips and this one by far, was the best. Matt and Mike were awesome! They went above and beyond to make sure our day was fun, exciting and enjoyable. The fishing was fantastic, they were extremely helpful, the boat was beautiful ( upscale from other boats, I have been on) accommodations were fantastic. Can not say it enough, if you want a great experience fishing, go with these guys. I will definitely be returning for another great adventure!
