Carma Charters

If you and 5 friends are looking for a great deep sea adventure, you’ve come to the right place. Carma Charters are ready to welcome you on board their recently restored Bertram boat, to catch your dream trophy fish from the deep blue sea!

Captain Tommy runs a 38’ cruiser that can comfortably fit 6 anglers and have you all fish at once without crossing lines. Her twin 450 HP engines, and cruising speed of 21 knots, will have you out far from the shore fast. Along with her fishfinder and the crew’s local knowledge of where the fish are, you will be on top of the fish in no time, reeling in the big game, and making lifelong memories.

You can expect to target a wide variety of species on these trips, from Cobia and Dorado (Mahi Mahi) to Sailfish, Blackfin Tuna, Kingfish, and many more. On the extended trip you can expect to be 60 miles from shore, with plenty of time to hook and reel in the big game you’ll be targeting.

All rods, reels, lures, and live bait are provided for. Live bait is not used on every trip, as it completely depends on the season and species being targeted. Depending on what fishing technique you go for, Capt. Tommy will make sure you have the appropriate gear to match.

You will need to bring along food and drink on these trips - catching big game takes a lot of energy, so bring plenty. You will also need to purchase a fishing license before the trip. Capt. Tommy also recommends bringing polarized sunglasses and sunscreen, although there is plenty of space in the cabin to get out of the midday heat.

So what are you waiting for? Your dream catch is out there waiting for you!
