Looking for a great reef and offshore trip? Then search no further – Medicine Man Fishing Charters will be the perfect match for you. Captain Bob Dorchak has over 3 decades of experience and will make sure you have an unforgettable day.

You will spend the day on a 34’ Venture center console. This beautiful vessel can comfortably fit 6 anglers without bumping elbows. Of the 6 anglers on board, there is a maximum of 2 children under the age of 10 allowed per trip. Life vests will be provided for them, and they are sure to love the reef trips especially.

With powerful twin 300 HP Yamaha engines and full navigational equipment, you will be on top of the fish before you know it. You will head out a maximum of 38 miles, so you’ll be able to spend the most time possible with your lines in the water.

Depending on which trip you choose, you’ll target a huge range of species, including, but not limited to, Blackfin Tuna, Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Yellowtail Snapper, Wahoo, Snapper, and Grouper.

All rods and reels are provided. You’ll be using a mixture of top of the line equipment – when you are reeling in the big boys your gear won’t let you down! Capt. Bob loves to use light gear, as he enjoys the classic fight with the fish that this line offers, so expect a thrilling fight with your catch!

After the trip Capt. Bob will happily fillet and pack your catch for you. You’ll need to leave a cooler in the car to take your haul home with you. It would also be a good idea to bring along food – you’ll need to keep your energy up! Bottled water is provided.

After a successful career in the biotechnology-pharmaceutical business, I decided to turn my leisure passion of saltwater fishing into another career. I have well over 30 years of experience fishing and diving the beautiful Florida Keys waters with my family, friends, and others. I am now able to share the knowledge and skills I have acquired over a lifetime of fishing the FL Keys through charter fishing. In addition to the Keys I have extensively fished the Gulf of Mexfico from the Keys to the Florida panhandle. From fishing the reefs for Snapper, Grouper and other reef fish, to blue water fishing for Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Sailfish, and more. I love sharing and teaching about this fantastic resource.
