Takedown Charters

Have you’ve been planning that offshore trip for a long time now, but can’t fit it in your schedule? Takedown Charters, with Captain Greg Hartlaub at the helm, will give you a real bluewater fishing experience, in a single day!

Capt. Greg invites you to join him for a fishing adventure on board his 40’ Cabo express. She’s locked and loaded for reel-screaming action while providing you with comfort so you can focus on the fish. The spacious deck and roomy cabin allow for 6 anglers on board, plus the captain and first mate.

There’s a fridge for your snacks and drinks, a microwave, and a dining area that turns into a bed – you can take a break between strikes. There’s also a full head toilet, so you don’t have to hold it in, even on longer trips.

Longer trips are where it’s all at with Capt. Greg. The productive blue waters of Florida can be properly experienced on a full day trip, where you’ll go after the prestigious Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, or Yellowfin Tuna. Other species can also be targeted, depending on what you’re looking for. Amberjack will give you a challenging battle while Red Snapper makes for an incredibly tasty dinner. There’s a wide range of other species you can target – contact the captain to work out what’s best for you.

Remember to bring sunscreen and polarized sunglasses, Capt. Greg will provide you with everything else; rods, reels, and tackle, fishing licenses, bottled water, and more!

Stop daydreaming about your next fishing trip. Book a trip with Takedown Charters now and make it a reality!
