South Florida Outfitters Offshore

South Florida Outfitters specializes in putting your strength to the test and rewarding you with great table fare. Enjoy the thrill of running 40 mph across the open sea and fight with some tasty and feisty fish.

You will be spending your day fishing anywhere between 20 and 80 miles off of the Florida coast. The waters there are home to a large variety of fish and team with everything from Red Grouper and Red Snapper to Gag Grouper, Mangrove Snapper, Permit, Cobia, Yellowtail Snapper, Black Grouper, Amberjack, and who knows what else?

South Florida Outfitters offers light and heavy tackle trips, where you will be able to try a little bit of jigging, deep sea fishing, and bottom fishing. They can cater to any angler who is older than 5 and wants to have a fun and productive day on the water.

Your boat for the day will be a 36’ Contender, powered by triple 250 HP Mercury Verado outboards. The boat can almost ‘fly’ at a top speed of 35 knots and can get you to the fishing grounds quickly and safely.

This fantastic offshore vessel is fully rigged with all the necessary electronics and top-notch equipment to put you on fish. There is also a toilet onboard, along with an ice-box for the catch and a livewell loaded with bait to make your hooks irresistible. Bait is usually prepared ahead of time.

You will be provided with fishing licenses, rods, reels, lures, and a lot of action. Your catch will be cleaned at the end of the trip so that you could taste it for dinner later. All aboard!

My first fishing memories were made in the canyons of the NE Atlantic fishing for Tuna and in the Chesapeake Bay for Stripers and Bluefish. I moved here in 2000 with my parents and became infatuated with fishing for Snook, Redfish, Trout, and Tarpon. My favorite fish to pursue are Redfish on light tackle. There is nothing better than coming tight on one of these powerful fish and wrestling them out from under the mangroves.
