Chlophish Charters

Launching out of Boca Raton Inlet, Chlophish Charters specializes in premier offshore fishing trips for clients of all skill levels. Captain Mike Franquiz is an outdoor lover whose main goal is having fun in the sun with his clients and putting them on the fish of their dreams.

Your adventure will take place aboard a 23’ Sportsman 232 center console. It can cater to up to 2 anglers fishing without bumping elbows, tangling lines, and with plenty of seating space. Powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine, the boat features outriggers, downriggers, a live bait tank, a cooler, and top-quality marine electronics and safety gear. The captain is CPR trained and safety is one of his main priorities.

Captain Mike will show you his favorite hotspots, and you could be wetting your lines in just 10 minutes after leaving the dock. You’ll be trolling artificials for the likes of Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Blackfin Tuna, Kingfish, Bonito, and even Wahoo if luck is on your side. Bottom fishing, spinning, jigging, and even handlining are also on the table. 

You’ll be provided with quality fishing gear (mostly by Penn), lures, and fishing licenses. You can keep the catch, but if you don’t want it, the crew takes it. The first mate will be happy to clean and fillet the catch after the trip, so tips for his efforts are more than welcome.

Chlophish Charters will do everything for you to have a fun and productive trip!
