Just booked!

Strippin Lips Fishing Charters is excited to introduce our newest boat! Our 30’ Hydra Sport is the perfect boat for your offshore adventure, with brand new electronics, VHF Radio, 12” touch-screen depth finder with side scan, and down imaging and 4G Broad Band Radar.

The boat features 18’ Taco Marine outriggers and is powered by brand-new 2019 twin 250 Suzuki Motors, with a max cruising speed of 54 MPH. There is a T-Top to provide some shade, a toilet for your convenience, salt and fresh water wash-down, plenty of storage for your personal items, and even a USB port for phone charging. It also has a 50 gallon livewell, 3 kill boxes, and a separate Yeti Cooler full of water and soda with enough room for your lunch/snacks.

We will offer a variety of trips, from half day to full extended day Gulf Stream trips. We will be fishing offshore anywhere from 6 miles out, all the way to 50 plus miles, fishing the natural and artificial reefs, trolling, bottom fishing, targeting Wahoo, Amberjack, Blackfin Tuna, Mahi Mahi, Sailfish, Cobia, Kingfish, Grouper, and Snapper, all depending on the season and the length of your trip.

Using a wide variety of live, cut and artificial bait, we will do what we can to get you that Fish of a Lifetime. Nothing is promised, however Captain Dave will do his absolute best to ensure you each have the best time possible!

All fishing equipment, fishing license, sunscreen, water and soda are included, feel free to bring lunch or snacks, or any specific desired beverages.

Although we can comfortably accommodate up to 6 anglers, we prefer to keep it around 4, to better your odds. Mornings can be chilly, and you never know if/when that Florida afternoon shower will happen, so dress accordingly. It can get a little rocky out there, so dramamine is recommended.

Each trip is different, you just never know what we’ll see—Dolphin, Sharks, Sea Turtles, Manta Rays—so make sure you bring a pair of polarized glasses and sit back and relax!

Captain David is a native Floridian who comes from a family of people who are passionate about spending time on the water. Over the years he has explored his love of the water, spending many years fishing offshore from a 57' sportfisher, as well as learning everything he can about the inshore waterways from Tomoka State Park to the Mosquito Lagoon first from a kayak, and then from a poling skiff. Nowadays he enjoys sharing his love both for inshore fishing and fishing offshore with his clients aboard his three boats, a 17' Pathfinder, a 22' Andros and a 30' Hydra Sport.
