Big Game Charters LLC invites you to join Captain Hunt and his crew for an unforgettable offshore experience out of Pompano Beach, FL. This is a family-owned and operated charter business that prides itself on providing you with a sportfishing trip specifically tailored to your needs.

You’ll be fishing on a 52’ Merritt sportfisher that’s powered by a pair of 550 HP Detroit engines. There’s plenty of room aboard for up to 6 anglers to comfortably fish in, so you’re free to bring some friends along for the ride. It’s equipped with everything you’ll need for an offshore trip, including navigation electronics, 4 x fighting chairs, livewell for bait, and more besides.

What you target on the water is completely up to you. If you’re interested in bottom fishing, there’s plenty of delicious Grouper and Snapper to go after. For more sporting types, you can test your mettle against the likes of Blue and White Marlin, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Swordfish, Tuna, and others too.

Rods, reels, and tackle are included in the price of the trip. The mate works for tips, so 20-30% gratuity is very much appreciated. Live bait can be bought at $80 for a dozen. All you need to do is bring a pair of polarized sunglasses, along with some drinks or snacks, and you’re all set to do some proper fishing.

In 1968, I broke into the family fishing business of 3 generations, my dad at pier 5 Miami, older brother, then myself 25 years and now my sons. We do whatever it takes to catch fish. Our mates love people and will work hard for you. Most of our customers are repeat customers, we love to catch new people and children their first fish. Please come see the difference.
