Koko Charters

If you are looking for a great trip offshore, Koko Charters are bound to have something for you. Captain Chris Gowens has been fishing his whole life, and he knows where to take you to make sure you hook in your dream fish.

You will spend the day on a 41’ Luhrs boat. This fabulous boat can have 6 anglers fish at once without crossing lines. She is powered by twin 635 HP Cummins engines, to make sure you waste no time in transit. Capt. Chris wants to get your lines wet as soon as possible. He has also gone above and beyond with the safety equipment onboard. He wants you to enjoy your day without worrying about yourself, your friends, or your family.

You’ll cruise to the best fishing spots in style – this boat is equipped with new Fusion/Wet Sounds stereo with Bluetooth to listen to your music of choice. You will want to make sure you’ve got something epic playing while you reel in your trophy catch! This boat also boasts an air-conditioned salon and a full head, so you can travel in comfort. There is also a flat screen TV/ DVD and a microwave in the galley for your use.

This high standard is continued with the equipment that you will use. You’ll be using Accurate, Van Staal & Shimano Talica reels. Everything is top of the line and ready for you to have an incredible day on the water. All rods, reels, and lures are included in the price.

You will target a huge range of species, such as Mahi Mahi, Tuna, Sailfish, White and Blue Marlin, Barracuda, Wahoo, and many more. Head up to 30 miles offshore to reel in some big beauties. You will troll and bottom fish predominantly. This boat was designed for trolling, so you can fish easy knowing this is the perfect boat for this technique of fishing.
Capt. Chris is happy to fillet your catch at the end of your trip – the hardest decision you need to make is how to cook it! All you need to do is pack your snacks, water, polarized sunglasses, and meet Capt. Chris on the water!
