Going Coastal

Going Coastal and Captain Dustin specialize in inshore, nearshore and flats fishing anywhere from Hudson to Clearwater Beach. Explore the West Coast in comfort and style and have a fun and relaxing day on the water.

You will be able to target any fish species that patrol those waters if the season allows. The list of your potential catches with Capt. Dustin includes Snook, Redfish, and Spotted Seatrout which can be found close to shore and Black Seabass, Red Snapper, and Blacktip Shark which you could target just a bit further out.

Capt. Dustin specializes in light tackle drift fishing using rods, reels, and tackle by Open Face. He will also provide you with live bait which will be prepared for the trip, fishing licenses, lures, drinks, and a complimentary fish cleaning service.

Apart from fishing, you will be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and the abundant wildlife. Your boat for the day will be a 2015 2’ Nautical Star center console. It comes powered by a single 150 HP Yamaha engine and can comfortably accommodate up to 4 people. The boat is equipped with a GPS, a fish finder, and a live well.

Just hop onboard, sit back, and relax. A day out with Going Coastal is a truly relaxing adventure that no-one should miss.
