Come aboard Manicsportfishing and join the crew for an adventure that will see you exploring the plentiful waters of Marathon. Their FL captain prides himself on offering a charter that is based on relationships – there are no run-of-the-mill fishing trips here! No expense is spared to ensure that you’ll have a great day on the water.

The captain is based out of the Florida Keys because of its diverse fisheries, from the Gulf to Marathon humps and various local wrecks! Whether you want to battle hard-fighting Mahi Mahi, or go high speed trolling for Wahoo, the opportunities this diverse fishery offers are endless.

You’ll be heading out on your adventure in a 37’ Steiger Craft. She’s an impressively fast fishing machine that can accommodate up to 4 anglers. Onboard, you’ll find luxuries not a lot of boats in the area can offer, including heating, air conditioning, and a full electric toilet – you’ll be traveling in serious comfort and style! Guest safety is important to the captain, so your vessel is fully equipped with a Viking liferaft, EPIRB, and other necessary safety and navigational gear.

The Florida Keys are home to some seriously impressive world-famous fish. If you’re looking for some first-class big game, get ready to target Mahi, Wahoo, Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna, and more. Want to reel in some monster species that will give you serious bragging rights? A variety of Sharks are on offer, including Mako, Bull, and Nurse.

You’ll be provided with top-notch gear for your trip, as well as a friendly and knowledgeable crew. When you’re back on shore, they’ll clean your catch for you. The first mate works for tips, so gratuity is very much appreciated.

Come aboard Manicsportfishing and experience Floridian fishing at its finest!

Please note that fuel is not included in the price of your trip, and will be an additional cost.
