Captain Joe Krob and Off The Hook Fishing Charters welcome you aboard for a fun-filled angling trip that will make you fall in love with fishing all over again!

With an experienced guide like Capt. Joe, who carries both Florida and Alabama fishing licenses, you get the opportunity to hook a brag-worthy catch up to 9 nautical miles from the shore. That is an experience that not too many captains can offer.

You’ll be casting your lines out of a 2017, 31’ Cape Horn boat, powered by twin 300 HP Yamaha engines. You will also find a T-top on board, to give you shade against the unyielding Florida sun and make your stay even more comfortable.

She’s a seaworthy vessel, fully rigged with the state-of-the-art electronics and navigation gear to get you to the most productive fishing spots in the area. The boat also sports an iPilot trolling motor with an anchor lock, to keep you safely in one spot.

Your captain specializes in trolling for pelagics. This means you’ll get to ride out and get a chance to hook into the likes of Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, King Mackerel, and many other species. During the season, you’ll also get to hook into some delicious Snapper.

All the fishing equipment is provided for you, and you can turn to the first mate if you have any questions. He works for tips, so if you’re satisfied with the service, feel free to show it in gratuity. All you have to take care of are snacks, drinks, and sunscreen.

Off The Hook Fishing Charters are very much kid-friendly, so this is your perfect pick if you’re planning a family outing. Capt. Joe takes pride in organizing fishing trips that are memorable and enjoyable, so book now and be the next to experience it all!
