Description

Takedown is a 30’ 2005 Pursuit, propelled by twin 4-stroke outboards engines, with a maximum passenger capacity of 4 per trip. The vessel is air conditioned and features a variety of marine and navigational technology including Raymarine GPS, radio and fishfinder,.

The boat’s cabin is equipped with a dining area, complete with a microwave and refrigerator. There’s also a bathroom with fresh water on board. The Takedown crew provides a variety of fishing packages, from half or full day deep sea outings, to a weekend excursion to the Bahamas. The vessel comes equipped with quality fishing tackle as well as spearfishing equipment, snorkeling and scuba gear. Captain Gregory utilizes a variety of notable fishing brands on board, including rods and reels by Shimano, Daiwa and Penn International.

All fishing licenses, bait and ice are provided by the crew. Captain Hartlaub always prefers utilizing live bait to artificials; although he will use everything he can get his hands on, common baitfish include Ballyhoos, Cigar Minnows, Pinfish and more. There’s also the option of cleaning your catch once you return to the marina. “Hook & Cook” is also available, meaning your catch is prepared at the nearby restaurant, making sure you have the freshest seafood meal possible.

Captain Gregory Hartlaub is the owner and captain of the 30’ Takedown. Greg’s priority is to assure all of his guests have an exciting and memorable deep sea fishing experience. Regardless of your skill or experience level, he and his crew provide all the things you’ll need for the trip, so all you are left to do is pack your lunch and meet with them at the docks.

Based in the famous Florida Keys, a trip aboard Takedown is the opportunity to catch fish while having front row seats to some beautiful natural scenery this part of Florida provides.

I went out to Islamorada to fish and had the chance go out with Greg Hartlaub. Courteous and professional are the words that come to mind talking about Greg. Not only that he knows how to find the right spots and get the fish in the boat. Everything was excellent, I definitely recommend Greg and his charter!
