Off The Hook Charters

Get ready for an awesome day on the water with Off the Hook Charters. Launch out of Port Saint Joe, FL on the search for all the state’s top table and gamefish. Head home with a trunkful of fish and a headful of great memories. It really is as good as it sounds.

Your boat for the day will be Captain Cory Hoffman’s 30’ Pursuit center console. The vessel’s high sides and covered T-top make her perfect for families and children. She also has a full head to ensure a comfortable day on the water, however long you’re out for.

And you have plenty of choice when it comes to trip times. Charters range anywhere from half-day stints to 12-hour offshore adventures. Enjoy a morning trolling for King and Spanish Mackerel, or head out a little longer to hit the reefs for various Snappers and Groupers. All these trips are great for beginners and will send you home with enough fish to fill the freezer.

If you’re up for more of a challenge, Capt. Cory offers longer offshore charters targeting Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, and a variety of huge bottom fish. Come during the summer season, and you can even head out on a shared Red Snapper trip to catch the Gulf’s favorite food fish!

Whatever you do, you can count on a skilled guide and a modern, reliable boat. All tackle, rods, reels, and bait is included in the price, so the only thing missing is you! Just jump aboard with your food, drinks, and sun protection.

So whether you’re combing the local buoys for Sheepshead and Tripletail or heading offshore for Mahi Mahi and Amberjack, one thing is for sure: It’s going to be off the hook!

    This trip is best in the spring but can always be productive. Take turns trolling for Spanish and King Mackerel then hit the buoys for Sheepshead, Tripletail, and anything else that's biting and in season.
