Your trip will take place aboard ‘Gone Coastal’, a spacious vessel with plenty of room for 6 anglers. She is a 38’ Bertram Convertible with a pair of 300 HP Caterpillar engines and can cruise at a top speed of 20 knots.

Gone Coastal is fully outfitted with advanced technologies and electronics. The boat has a galley with a freezer, multiple coolers, sleeping areas for 4 passengers, a full marine toilet, and 2 showers.

Maritime Operations will work hard to make that special occasion one to remember. The crew will assist you throughout the adventure from baiting your hooks to serving and cleaning up. Catering might also be available if requested prior to the trip.

Your day out will take you fishing the local artificial reefs, wreck, and offshore grounds. You will be able to enjoy a heavy tackle workout, hit the reefs for Grouper and Snapper, and troll for Kingfish and Spanish Mackerel. Barracuda, Tuna, and more species are also among the popular catches!

All fishing licenses, rods, reels, lures, and tackle will be provided by the crew. Live bait will also be available if the day calls for it, along with a complimentary fish cleaning service. Tips for good service are customary.

Please note that everyone who comes aboard will need to sign a waiver.

I have been in Florida for several years and enjoy fishing the Gulf of Mexico waters myself. Fishing is always a challenge and is never the same day twice. I am a "people person" and have lots of fun with the people I meet as a charter captain. I have ten years experience as a charter captain on the Chesapeake Bay and the Potomac River running a tour boat. I was also an assistance tow captain for TowBoatUS on the Chesapeake Bay and here in the Tampa Bay area as well as a boatswain's mate in the US Coast Guard. Charter fishing is the best of all worlds to me.
