TruBlue Charters

87000 Overseas Hwy
Islamorada FL, United States

The “TruBlue” is a 2015 BX 24’ Sea Hunt Bay Boat, powered by a 300HP Yamaha four-stroke engine along with a 112 wireless Minn Kota trolling motor. She’s able to accommodate up to 4 passengers. The boat is outfitted with an 8’ PowerPole as well as both livewells and coolers on board so that your fish and drinks don’t mix. As for the navigational electronics, the TruBlue features a standard assortment of marine technology, including fishfinder and Garmin 541S GPS.

Whether you’re after inshore, backcountry or offshore fishing, Captain Bruce Davis has done it all. Some of the species usually targeted when fishing aboard the TruBlue include the Sunshine State’s favorite inshore forage such as Redfish, Tarpon, and Snook, to Grouper, Hogfish, Mahi Mahi and even Sailfish. Fishing licenses, water, ice, and fishing equipment are all provided by Captain Bruce, who usually isn’t fully satisfied until he sees all rods bent to the fullest.

All rods on board are custom-made, matched with the appropriate Shimano and Penn International reels and armed with Eagleclaw hooks. All bait is included in the price – although specific bait usually depends on the season and the exact species you’re going after. The most common picks include Pinfish, Pilchard, Ballyhoo, and shrimp during the winter.

No matter your skill level, fishing the waters of Florida is enjoyable for every angler! Book a trip with TruBlue Charters and take the first step in making a new exciting memory.
